A COLD WINTER POST WITH TEMPS TO MATCH..
Still blowing and icy blow here today but the sun is out...just no warmth in it as you cannot find anywhere to hide from the wind..
So I guess my afternoon will be spent in my craft space and try to put something together as my mojo has wandered off...
He was here the day I made this canvas though..well, I think he was....
I used this sweet Mo Manning image" Winter Fairy Manty"...coloured him with pencils...glossed up his wings and fussy cut him out to put on my canvas....
The background was made with water colour paints and water...lots of water..and it all ran down just where I wanted it...I had already masked off my moon...and cut loads of fern leaves using black cardstock and baking paper...[too soft and pretty to throw away]..
The tiny pine cones are not really pine cones, but they are off a tree [cannot remember the name of it]...and I found heaps down at the reserve when walking the dog..don't know what the dog was doing I was too busy picking up there authentic looking pine cones...they had a treatment of gesso for snow and I love them
Loads of sparkly glitter snow along the bottom and then splatterings of gesso all over....
Yes, I fussy cut those pine tree branches he is carrying...sheez..took along time, but I find fussy cutting more relaxing than colouring....takes all sorts doesn't it.
