Snowflakes and Stars....

Hello!
I'm still in 'creating with a Christmas theme' mode, but wanted to change things up a little and be a bit more subtle! For my project today I've created a very Dina Wakley inspired panel....
This is postcard sized, so nice and quick to do!
As it's Dina inspired, of course I've used some Dina Wakley paints in there!
Sky, Lapis and Blackberry, to be precise!
My cardstock was primed first with white gesso, as well as giving a great base for the acrylic paint , adding gesso first means you can scratch patterns into it that show though once the colour is on top. You can see the swirly design in the above pic!
I used a bit of waste card, leftover from something else as a focal point...
I was going to stitch everything with white thread...but my white bobbin appears to have gone AWOL, so I used the red that was already threaded into the machine!
I actually think I like it better than white!
I used white paint flicked on to give splatters, then printed on to give the larger snowflakes. A smidge of outlining, and a few chit chat stickers to finish!
Hope you like it!
See you soon.......
