There's Snow Family...inspired by a Vera Lane Studio digi set

Hi everyone!The Wintertimes image digi set was released by Vera Lane Studio yesterday and they are the cutest little family. There is a father, mother, and child snowman plus a sweet cloud and some lovely snow in the set. Lots of options to mix and match or use them individually. I decided to create a two page mixed media spread to give them room to spread out.

The snow family was coloured with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, fussy cut leaving a white border, and matted with black cardstock to create a second border.

The sky of the 6x6 inch watercolour paper background was spritzed with Heidi Swapp Ocean Color Shine spray and water, allowing it to drip and pool to create extra texture. Extra colour and pattern was added using Broken China Distress Oxide and an ink blending tool. The snow portion was torn from white cardstock which was then embossed with a snowflake folder.

Snowflakes were stencilled on the sky area with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and white ones were punched and sparkled up with Icicle Stickles before they were adhered across the sky. The horizon line was deepened with Neocolor II crayon activated with a waterbrush. Once dry, it was then outlined with black pen which was also used to doodle a simple border. The wording on the right hand page was printed onto white cardstock and matted with black.

The speech bubbles were printed onto white cardstock and cut into their shapes freehand. The bubbles were matted with black and adhered over their heads. They are trying so hard to calm the wee one down...LOL. I'm not sure it's going to work though :)

Thanks for joining the Wintertimes and me today. We all appreciate that. When you get a chance, pop by the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop to check out this set as well as the plethora of others available...so many must-haves. We would love to have you pop by the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group as well. It's a great place to hang out and get inspired.

Life is good; so is art.
