I covered the snowflake with Gesso and put face down on to a dictionary page, smoothed out the wrinkles and left to dry and harden. I used distress stains and inks to give an aged effect and gold adirondack paint on the edge of an old credit card to create gold streaks, (a technique from Kate Crane’s Art Journaling DVDs).
‘The word ‘snow’ is grungeboard covered with distress ink and distress stickles. I made the snowflake embellishment by cutting grungepaper with a Tim Holtz movers and shapers snowflake die, covering with distress ink and pearl adirondack paint. I made a snowflake wax seal, trimmed and attached to the center of the grungepaper with glossy accents and added a small pearl accent to finish it off.
