* Winter Wonderland


I thought I would play along with Nina Ribena's weekly art journal prompts this week. I decided to work on loose mixed media paper and attach it into a ring binder journal I bought from Inkylicious. The paper I worked on is 8 x 8 inches.
The theme is Festive and here is the AJ Page I made.

1.  I began by making some homemade spray inks in Turquoise and Prussian Blue from Brushos. I sprayed these onto the paper, then used Memento Flannel Grey ink and an ink duster to make snow mounds. I spritzed the sky to bleach out some colour. 
2.  Next I stamped the tall pine trees in Ranger Archival ink and heat embossed the stag and deer with black EP.
3.  I blended Distress Oxides in Broken China, Faded Jeans and Black Soot around the edges of the paper.
4.  Modelling Paste was applied with a palette knife to replicate the ground snow - I sprinkled some glitter onto this for some sparkle.
5.  The deer were covered with a scrap of paper and white paint was splattered onto the page. 
6.  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed.
7.  The branches were stamped all around the edges of the page.
8.  Snow was added to the fir tree branches with a white Posca paint pen.
9.  Finally, Stickles Diamond glitter was applied to the snow on the branches and along the snow on the ground.
All stamps are from Inkylicious.

That's all for today!
