LET IT SNOW MIXED MEDIA LAYOUT

Hello Friends, Welcome to my blog!! Today am sharing a mixed media canvas layout with you all. 

Winter has dawned in US and there is snowfall in many states though we don't get any here in California. Every year during the Christmas week my husband gets a week off in his office . So we visit some nearby hill stations to see the snow and play with them. The tall snow covered Christmas trees and the breathtaking snow clad peaks reminds me of my friends words. When we were in college she used to tell me that we at least once in lifetime we should celebrate Christmas in the snow. When I visit places like these I feel like am living her dream and how nice it would be if she was with me then.With these memories flashing in my mind I created a mixed media canvas layout with the theme " Let it snow". 

I adhered strips of white paper to my canvas and gave a coat of gesso. Then created random textures using different stencils and texture paste. Once its dried I sprayed the color shine turquoise blue and dabbed dark blue acrylic paints. I found it to be very dark so gave a thick coat of gesso to tone it down. 

Then glued the image ( print out) which is matted on a white card stock and added all the embellishments. The flowers are handmade using recollections punches. The bird and the tiny rose flowers are made using playdoh.  I used white glitter foam sheets for the leaves. I made small white dots to give the canvas a snowfall effect. The sentiment is handwritten. 




Hope you all liked my layout... Happy thanksgiving to all of you!!
