''Pretty as a Picture''
In my country, Canada, the snow often begins early,
November is perfect to be inspired by this.

''Pretty as a picture'' as title
I used a 12x12 chipboard for my background. I used gesso and other medium to get those
colors and textures near to snow. All the snowflakes chipboards on the background were
glued on it and received the same treatment than the surface.
I also used the frame of my snowflakes kit as stencil with a mist to get more
snowflakes on my background.
The snowflakes near to my picture were painted with dazzlers from Shimmerz paint
I used the treatment as my snowflakes near to my picture to paint the title, but to get
more textures, I used a medium call ''Snowflakes''. It's a artificial snow to add to our craft.
I decided for my tutorial to play with my chipboards on a canvas.
A wonderful way of layering several pieces together.

I start to add some canvas on my background to add some textures.
Then, I paint all the surface with gesso.
I also assed gesso on all my chipboard pieces except the key,
which I added some minc paint to add foil later.
I added some embossing Bridal powder to two of my pieces, modeling paste on two others
and green embossing powder to and another one.
I just glued my pieces on my canvas.
I played with shinny powder, modeling paste and matt paint from13@rts,
to add some colors and depth.
I also used watercolor pens to add black shadow.
Here,s my layout as guest dt for CSI for 2crafty Chipboard.
