Snow on the trees in March. For many of us that seems silly, but for lots of other places it is a last vestige of winter holding on. This technique is from the current newsletter. Can you see the three deer peeking through the trees? The clouds are made from a template I made from a sheet of scrap acetate. I used a black magic marker and drew "cloud bumps" not too close together. And I cut them out. Now I lay my cloud template down on card stock and sponge the edge creating either a cloudy sky, storm clouds, sunset, or sun rise - whatever I want my sky to look like. choose appropriate colors and there you go. The trees were die cut and then sponged in several shades of green and a bit of brown. After the trees were almost dry, I sponged on some white paint.
I know there are some people who cannot get enough of winter and snow -- but I am done with it, please! Spring cannot come quickly enough for me!
