Think snow!

I enjoyed my gesso experiments so much I continued in the same vein making this Christmas hanging tonight! I cut an arch out of old packaging and painted it with black acrylic paint. I poured some white gesso onto a paper plate and stamped snowflakes onto it. I added one of my fave seasonal images (courtesy of Trish at NGS last year), some lace, some red and green flat-backed stones, the words and a ribbon loop attached with a snowflake brad. I also tinted the image with watercolour pencils which softened the whole thing I think. I attached the lace to the bottom of the arch with crossed staples – my ‘kisses’!!

This is my entry for Wednesday Stamper’s “Snowflake kisses” and MMM’s “Christmas ornament”.
