Heather here and today I would like to share with you another
Guest Design Piece I have done using
and some fabby Ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
First up, I have a couple snowmen that I have done in a shabby chic style using Gina's Snowman Banner and My Floral Digital Papers.
I covered all the pieces with my papers then inked the edges with Ranger's Frayed Burlap.
I used Fauna, Storm, Just Peachy and Arbor Glitters on all of my snowmen. I also added 1/4 natural crochet lace on each of the hats and then topped them with snowflake chippies that I covered in Fauna glitter. Then I placed a Deep Ivory Mulberry Rose or
Baby Pink Mulberry Roses on top of that. I added vintage buttons tied with Cotton Candy Baker's Twine or Aqua Baker's Twine. The buttons and snowflakes were elevated using
I also played with one of Gina's Birds on Key Set
I painted the piece first with Gesso, then water colors in blue, pink, and dark yellow.
After I painted it I put a layer of matte gel medium over it. This way I could add another layer of water colors. Below you will see I used some Golden Brown on the Key.
Next I added some darker blue to the blue birds and red to their chests and golden brown to the beaks. I also stamped on the key with Tree Branch Archival Ink.
For my Final step I added another layer of matte gel medium and then doodled with a black pigma pen. I just love how it turned out!
