When it snows I am filled such a magnificent feeling, okay, only when I am at home, warm and safe. I do not feel this way about snowfalls when I am driving. I wanted to be reminded of my snow feelings so I decided to create a journal page.
I began to flip through my art journals looking for a background. I often make backgrounds with no purpose in mind. This is quite handy when I need a starting point. A purple tag background seemed to fit my mood.
Blue paper punched snowflakes glued down.
A gently tracing of blue Inktense watercolor pencil around the snowflakes then a touch of glitter and gems. To create a place to ground the soon to be snowman, I cut text and watercolored it blue.
Added a snowman cut from textured wallpaper. He was covered in all sorts of colors of paint, none being the right color. Then a coat of gesso to tone it down. Still not happy with the snowman at this point.
More gesso on top of the snowman. Now I am happy with the contrast. Typed up & glued down a bit of journaling.
