Snow??

I am writing this with one eye on the TV as Liverpool are playing Swansea and we could do with the win....  It's been ages since I had time to play in my journal.

Some time ago I had some mopped up spray paint (Dylusions) in my journal that was just sitting there and last night I started smooshing the colour around with a wet brush till the page was covered.


 Added some extra sprays to add more colour, and kept faffing - I thought I'd taken some 'during' photos but obviously not!

Added some snowflakes with the large Dylusion snowflake template, and white Paperartsy Fresco paint.

Sponged black soot DI through the small snowflake template and edged the letters with white gel pen, then drew some dots inside the letters.


Added the small reindeer stamp (Tim Holtz) with black archival ink.




This one is without flash. Not sure which shows the page up better!  Now, back to the football....
