I kind of have a love affair with Lavina stamps. There are only one or two stamps in my stash so for a place to spend some Christmas money I went to their website and did some shopping. There I noticed they do offer a few in digital form. I purchased this fairy and the Christmas Trees plus a few more digis and several stamps. Once I had sized and printed the images on white tissue paper I used a full copy paper text vellum to build this scene. After masking the circle for the moon I sponged three shades of purple inks plus a dark gray around the upper edges. Next I tore some copy paper to use as mask for the snow covered hills and sponged the two lightest shades of purple. After I used a water brush and pookie tool to feather around the tissue trees I used the hill stencil and water brush to create my tear line making my trees come out of the hills. Using white school glue and a old credit card to spread the glue over the entire piece, I then placed the trees and added the same glue for top coat. While wet I place the fairy tissue piece covering the whole thing then added the final top coat of white glue. Once dry I added black water color pencil on trees, white gel pen highlights, and white gauche splatter. The fairy wings got Dragonfly Glaze for shimmer and colored markers for highlights. Once trimmed to size I added a black boarder by dragging the sharpie along each edge then mounted on white cs base.
It was my plan all along that the top layer of tissue paper would cover the scene causing a gauze like cover and making it a kind of white out snow storm. It really helped bring the trees to life by adding in the black colored pencil and white gauche with fan brush.
