Winter Scene Canvas by Elena Olinevich

Hello crafters. My kids are asking me each day when the winter comes. As for the youngest (he is 3 years old) it means cold and snowy. It's nasty outside with no snow. When I was a child there have been much more snow in winter than nowadays, and the color for winter projects for me are associated with white and blue for my childhood. Now I experiment a lot with a color, but in my memories of those good times it was snowy and blue was the dominant color.

So I decided to create a canvas, I named it Winter Scene - with lots of snow on the background and frosty weather.

So I played only with 3 main colors - white, blue and brown,
though I used many tones of these colors.

I started with creating different textures on my canvas background - I applied crackle paste, sand paste, and gloss gel. After that I added lace and denim trims, covered half of it with gesso and started playing with the blue.
First I misted it, then I added the pigment powders in brown and blue. It was a magic.

You can see the lovely textures and colors here.

Lots of sparkle.

So easy and so cool!

Hope you have liked my canvas, thanks for watching.
