friends canvas/layout

Hello everyone! 
My daughter Yiscka is now on vacation to the United States of America.
She will be visiting a friend, Taylor whom she met during her internship two years ago. 
These girls kept in touch all of these years and finally Yiscka was able to go visit. 
To say they are excited is an understatement! :) 
The photo is of back then when there was lots of snow 
so I wanted this canvas/layout to have that same wintery feeling. 
Surrounded the lovely photo with lots of flowers and 
other embellishments to create a warm cozy cluster.
Added some small cotton balls to mimic the snow.
This canvas will be a gift and because Taylor loves green,
  I made this wintery scene in her favorite color.


Started this page with a snowflake stencil (Hobbyshop Sandra) and some modeling paste.
Added the paints with some water to get a watercolor effect.
Made some splashes with splash paint from 13Arts.
The chipboard frame circle is also from Sandra and I used puffy paint to create that snowy effect.

Distressed the edges from this word piece.

Some puffy paint on the chipboard frame.

The lovely snowflake stencil.

Best friends!

Some wooden pieces and small pinecones.
The gorgeous green berries are from Scrap-Unlimited.

Some gesso on a metal flower.

All touched by the gesso.

Some small wooden beads and some crystal beads which mimic frozen waterdrops.

Hadn't much green flowers left in my stash so I painted all the flowers.

Keep warm my friends! 
Enjoy your day!

  1. What a fabulous canvas you created. The cluster is looking awesome. Fantastic color mix and texture. The gesso truly adds that very special touch. You succeeded so well in creating a winter scene....you can almost feel the low temperatures....
    And I have to add it is such a lovely picture. I hope your daughter will enjoy her stay over there...
    Thank you for sharing your creativity and lovely art.
