Winter Sun by Samantha Read


Hello! Happy Wednesday. You may already know that today a new That's Crafty! challenge begins and the theme is 'Winter Wonderland'. I have made a large make for this months theme, so this is one part, part 2 I'll post on November 21st and when all three pieces are together I'll share on the last Wednesday of the month, so bear with me because that means this isn't really a finished piece....

What I did

I began with an 8in diameter MDF Round and rather than cover with gesso I covered with thin card. I did this because the sprays behave differently on gesso or card, on gesso sprays just tend to sit on the surface and with card they soak in so the dry effect is quite different, (something for you to experiment with perhaps). I then painted the card with pink, lavender and blue paint and then sprayed using a mix of flat matte and lustre sprays in coordinating colours, rose, aqua, blueberry, lilac lustre and frost.

The unicorn is made using a Tandi Art stencil and the girl and winter sun are Tandi Art stamps. I used the unicorn horn so the little girl could dress up as a unicorn as she rides. I also used a couple of dinky stencils for the snowflakes, sun rays and leaves, don't forget it's not finished yet... (All of the white stencil details are made using Texture Paste, I coloured the characters using Prismacolour pencils).
