Here is the completed project. I think the swirls look a little too much like horns (even though I really meant them to be eddies of air currents behind the fast moving snowflake).
I've just finished our first week of classes at the university and I'm pretty tired. I really didn't feel up to spending time in my craft room, so I packed up my Distress Markers and waterbrushes and left them beside my bed. I love snow and I have several snowflake stamps. One evening, I stamped some watercolor paper with these snowflakes and added some Prima swirl and wing stamps. I spent some time before I crashed each night to add some color with Distress Markers (just love these!!!) along with a few glitter, archival and gel pens (the focal snowflake was outlined with a metallic silver gel pen.) I'm finding ways to create that don't require hours in my craft room. Ah ... joy!
Here are a few more close ups:
I have the day off from work tomorrow. Hopefully I will have some energy to expend in my craft room and make the rounds to your blogs. Wishing you all the best! -- Mary Elizabeth
