  • Snowflakes

    Seeing all Leah’s snow pictures last week got me thinking about snowflakes, which in turn inspired me to get some paper and scissors and start cutting! I know snowflakes are supposed to have six sides, but mine has eight – call it artistic license!


    I coloured the background using Inktense pencils then cut the snowflake out of white paper and coloured it using distress ink pads applied with cling film. I stuck the snowflake to the background using gel medium then added more colour to the background using the same distress ink and cling film technique.

    Digital Blended Snowflakes

    After I scanned it into the computer I started wondering what it would look like if I played digital blending games! You need to click on this one to look at it large.

    I adore these snowflakes. Using cling wrap is always fun, but I found the dry time was quite long. When I enlarged them, I thought the one on the right was simply stunning!!

    Thank you for visiting, Bleubeard and Elizabeth. It was fun and I found the distress ink dried quite quickly. The one on the right is my favourite too 🙂
