Wax with Gingersnaps


This is a piece I started when I had my fab girls weekend with Sue and Sioux. I wanted to create a canvas white toned Christmasy piece that looked cold and wintery. The star was a stencil which I filled with Terra Texture paint. When dry I painted it and the canvas with pale cool colours. I sprinkled clear glitter onto the star so it would stick whilst the paint was drying. I then stamped onto tissue paper and applied this onto the canvas.

When I came home I wanted the colours to be even softer so applied a thin layer of wax over some of the images to soften them. I also applied the Merry Christmas by stamping onto tissue paper and adhering with wax. I have also found this glorious ultra thick gesso which I spread over sequin waste to give it more dimension and texture.

There are some other varied creations by the design team over on Gingersnaps. Please take a look.
