2021 Topic 11: Twinkle Twinkle
To begin I cut up some Smoothy card into the size of panels that I wanted my finished cards to be (or you could create a 'masterboard' and cut into panels afterwards). I then painted each of the panels using Fresco Chalk Acrylic (Caribbean Sea) with a thin layer of (Mermaid) over the top. I use a sponge wedge to apply my paint as I find it easier to really pull that paint out.
With my white snowflakes I simply moved the stencil and repeated the snowflakes in the pattern of the stencil but for my next layer of snowflakes I used a different stencil (PS119) which has more 'open style' snowflakes and stencilled each of them separately, choosing which size of snowflake I wanted where.
(Firstly sorry about the fact that these next few pictures make the panels look as if I've used blue paint...I haven't......it is still the same background colours as before.....not sure why these photographed differently!) My next step was to decide what sort of layout and design I wanted to create for each of the panels, so I spent a little bit of time seeing what layout I thought would suit each panel. Once I'd decided on the layouts it was then a simple matter of stamping and embossing my imagery into place using a clear embossing inkpad and WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter.
