Masked SnowscapePosted: November 5, 2020 Filed under: grafix, Nature's Friend, sennelier watercolours, winter woodland | Tags: grafix, Penny Black stamps, sennelier watercolours 5 Comments
I teamed up with Grafix to create some videos this year. My first project was very definitely a summer scene, but this one, as you can see is not! We have had a few snowfalls already but currently are enjoying a reprieve and a few really nice mild days. Grafix makes a wide range of art plastics and films; I used their extra tack frisket film to mask the snowbanks and moon on this card and splattered Grafix liquid frisket to create the falling snow.
I worked on hot pressed watercolour paper and painted the sky and shadows with Sennelier watercolours. The trees and deer are stamped with the ever useful versafine clair nocturne ink. The video below shows my whole process.
If you are keen to create cards featuring the beauty of a northern winter I am working very hard on a new project that might interest you. Can’t wait to share more soon.
Beautiful! Loved the video! 😉
Such a beautiful scene. Sure is peaceful since not that much snow falling now. Love the bright blue sky. Can’t wait to do this card. Will need loads of winter/Christmas cards when I am finally able to get to my workroom.
Thank you so much.
Gorgeous scene Heather and love the added deer in the foreground, and the sky with the added moon and snow is just so striking and pretty, and the blue shadows for the added snow slopes gives just the right amount of shadow to give it form. x
So pretty! Thanks for always being so detailed in your instructions. Love it and the colors you used.
