Yeah exactly, I changed the weather for one day. I created a snow storm for Xmas in July.
It says: “the weather is changing but your memories don’t!” Are you interested how did I make it snow above 25°C? So just stay… First I used France Papillon’s design cube stamp with distress embossing ink and clear embossing powder. I tried to make a photo you may catch something on top of my paper.
Next I colorized my page with Lindy’s stamp gang sprays, and the result was emboss resist, where the spread was embossed I could wipe the ink away.
I loved the snowing effect and those storm clouds, but I am a lot more texture freak than to stop over here. So next I used fish scale stencil and I applied some heavy matte gel. I heated my gel so I got some bubbles as a texture. I painted my snow piles with white acrylics. I added a soft frame with black and white molotow markers.
While things dried I stamped Daniel Torrente’s Snowman on one side. I dropped some shadows with charcoal.
On the other side I used the text from Maria Sabina stamped with archival ink. Distressed the edges, colored them with distress ink. I added some arrows cut with Sizzix Chevron die.
And so that’s the story of me bringing down some snow in the middle of the summer.
I am sharing my journal page with Stampotique designers challenge: Xmas in July.
Great picture. Its over 100 degrees here so just seeing your snow storm felt good! Have a great week. Rasz
