~ SnowPeople! ~

This is a re-do of a canvas I did a couple of weeks ago.  It was originally inspired by a magazine ad that I saw.  I wasn't too fond of the papers I used or the actual snowpeople, so when I finally starting perusing the Quilted Christmas cartridge and saw Mama and Pappa Snowpeople, I said Heck Yea!  This canvas is going to a dear friend who had us over for dinner a couple of weeks ago and absolutely adores decorating her house for all thing wintry/Christmasy.  I'm sure she'll love it.  Be sure to see the additional details below and thanks for stopping by!

All of the papers I used came from MMEs 6x6 paper packs with the exception of the SnowPapa's vest and hat.  That came from a Halloween pack as it was black with subtle little white circles/stars on it.  I found it perfect for my use. 

 The snow is made from Golden's Glass Bead Gel with some white and off-white acrylic paint mixed in.  I also used this gel on the moon and stars.  SnowMama has some glitter on her belt/hat and she also has a bow on her hat.





 The hearts were hand cut and run through my cuttlbug dots folder before being inked and colored and pen dot-lined.  A little string was added to create a heart garland and the sentiment added at the bottom.  I also created a little additional texture on my snowpeople using modeling paste with white paint added and then a really light blue pigment ink brushed on top.  Some pen doodling and rub-ons finished things up.
