She has sat in my draw, waiting for me to be brave enough to make a project with her, I really didn't want to ruin the colouring by making a mess of her, so I decided to scan her and manipulate the colours to more ice blue tones and set about making a Winter/Christmas canvas.
I started by gluing the image to an A4 canvas, the pasting tissue paper around the edge.
Once dry I painted a couple of coats of Pearl white acrylic paint and sprinkled with glitter then left to dry.
It is really hard to see in the photos, but I added some blue, green and purple Kuretake Gansai water colour paint.
Finally adding embellishments, glitter and snowflakes.
I made the icicles by squeezing some regular ova glue on acetate then sprinkling with glitter, which I left to dry overnight.
I also added some chipboard letters and used a touch of liquid appliqué to create a snowy effect.
Thus is my second Aurora Wings seasonal canvas, I made an Autumn one a few months back and look forward to completing the seasons in the new year.
Thanks for looking :)
