Happy Tuesday CE Friends! Nicolle here sharing a canvas I created. I absolutely love snow and Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without it.  We actually had a bit of a dusting the other day. I was in my glory. Most people think I am nuts for loving snow but let me just say this. I love snow but I do not like the bitter cold. Anything below 30 degrees is torture. I just like the white stuff. 🙂 Don’t hate.

I used a ton of chipboard on this project. I started by priming each piece with gesso. I then added modeling paste to the tall trees, pine trees , winter bush, snowman and branches of the berry branch. The rest of the chipboard pieces I added some 3d stamp paint for a little texture.

I then went ahead and added another coat of gesso over all the chippies and part of the background.

 After the gesso was dry I swiped some brushed pewter over different areas of the canvas to define some of the textures in areas.
