Those snow scenes I love to do…Posted: December 22, 2011
A couple of posts ago I featured a snow scene I did for the Less is More snow challenge. I love creating snow scenes but that one I entered in the challenge was not the first one I did that day. It was the fourth. The first three are featured in this post. All of them are ok, but they were not quite what I was after. Snow scenes can be a little tricky at times. In the one above you will see I managed a strange yellowy tinge in the sky; wrong sponge I think.
In the one below the tiny words in the sentiment are a little hard to read and the shadow on that tree? Well, it is hardly a shadow; I could have planned that a little better.
The card below suffered from a restamping of the foreground tree which didn’t really match up; I must have moved the positioning tool. To salvage it I used an embossing pen to draw snow on the branches but it is still a bit messy.
All that to say: sometimes it takes a few attempts before I come up with the scene I am after, but those attempts can often be used, as is, or with a little creative alteration.
Enjoy your day, still no snow here, but now we have plenty of ice!
