Snow Fun

Hey there!

I hope everyone had a fantastic New Year!  Let's get going for a fabulous 2016!

Today I wanted to share with you a few more details regarding the snowman piece I made for this month's challenge.  This month our theme is Winter and the twist is Glitter!

Here is the piece:

This was created on a 5x7 canvas board.  I love working on canvas board as it's inexpensive to buy and easy to work with.  If I want to hand this I just had a clear plastic hook to the back like these:

Here are some steps and products I used:

This great snowman set is by Stampers Anonymous, the stencil is part of the Dina Wakley Scibbly Holiday Birds stamp and stencil set. I used some basic craft paints as well.  I used the Dylusion Spray to color the scarf.  All you do is spray a bit on a craft mat and pick up the ink with a brush.  I like to use the Ranger water brushes.

Here i added some washi tape! LOVE love washi tape.  I got into a craze recently and acquired lots of it.  Finding it all over on sale with coupons etc... LOL! 

Here I used Ranger texture paste for snow, Ranger Clear Rock Candy glitter, Blue Ultrafine glitter.  I have to say I LOVE the Ranger Texture paste for what I use it for.  I have the artist kinds of pastes by Liqutex etc but I do love working with this one mostly.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I do hope you will find some time to get creative and play along with us this month!  Can't wait to see what you do!



  1. Thanks for the step by step Maria, I was wondering what was underneath your texture paste snow, never would have thought to use washi! Great project, thanks for sharing it, Deb xo

  2. Fabulous Maria, a great idea to use the washi tape.
