Festive Artboard by DT Ann

Festive Artboard

By DT Ann

Don’t know about you but the festive season is creeping up fast!! No cards made, but trying to get into the spirit of things, I decided to create a scene on an mdf Artboard… you could do something similar on a card using paint instead of texture paste… 

Collage Gel

First mask off the bit that slots into the base of the Artboard so that it fits later… I use washi
tape. Using collage gel, glue old book pages to the Artboard. Add some wordy circles from the Dina Wakley collage papers.. And finish with a layer of collage gel.  

Next add some texture paste using the Trees Frame 6x6 (the inner bit) .. leave to dry. 

When dry use Versafine & stamp part of the large snowflake boarder in between the trees… (in hindsight I should’ve done this before I used the texture paste) then emboss in white… 

When cool start adding some colour with Ecoline Brush Pens, I used blues & blue-greens.  Blend as you add each colour & then splatter with water & leave to dry… 

When dry, wipe the Artboard with an anti static bag. Then stamp the words “Baby It’s Cold Outside “ in Versafine Clair Nocturne & emboss with clear powder. I also stamped some of the individual snowflakes in Unicorn White.. 

Paint some snowflake’s from a PopOut sheet in white (use shimmery/ glittery paint if you have any).. 

Remove the washi tape & slot the Artboard into its base. Paint in white gesso, add some texture paste & sprinkle with fake snow & sequins…  

Add the Pop Out snowflake’s & some glitter/flakes/sparkle/Sequins to the trees.. a few sparkles in the background & done .. 

Thanks for stopping by… Ann x
