Hello all! Thank you so much for the feedback on my first Wanderlust pages - creating them gave me great joy, so it's lovely that you enjoyed them too.
After the bothersome news this morning, I've a bit of fun for you now - a tag playing with a couple of Stampotique stamps I treated myself to. I know the quirky Daniel Torrente images are not my usual thing, but I've had a soft spot for them since I discovered them. I do have Moth Fab, who has put in an occasional appearance here, and a couple of others and another resolution this year is to make sure I ink them up more often.
These two snowmen delight me... and I wanted to give them a nice snowy forest landscape to live in.
Family, eh... you can't choose your family, they say. And some of them you really can't take anywhere... (Don't get me wrong - I love my own family dearly.)
With the look on the little snowman's face...
... I couldn't resist this Small Talk sticker.
The whole thing started with me smooshing the tag into a combination of Distress Stains and Paints on the craft mat - but deliberately keeping the blues and whites separate to create sky and snowy ground.
The snowmen are painted with the same mixture of Distress Stains and Paints, with some detailing added with Distress Markers, and I mounted the one in the foreground on padded tape to add to the illusion of depth.
In the sky I stamped my favourite snowflake stars with Picket Fence Distress Paint, and I added shading to the landscape, creating billowing snow drifts, and of course there are lots of lovely trees for the forest.
They're looking for projects including trees at the Stampotique Designers Challenge, and it's so long since I've managed to play along, so I'm entering this tag in the Trees theme at the Stampotique Designers Challenge.
That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed this bit of light relief, and I'll see you soon.
Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching - they are your family.
With the bluesy colours and the little snowman feeling so blue, I'd like to enter this in Oh So Blue at Stamps and Stencils too
