Play Day in the Studio

At the end of the week, I need time in my studio to unwind and create.  So today, I did just that.  I made this mixed media piece on a wood panel and really just had fun. I sprayed the background, then stamped/heat embossed the next layer, and added stenciled modeling paste with embossing powder sprinkled on it while still wet.  The snowflakes were rub-ons, and worked great over the modeling paste (I wasn't sure if it would work or not, so it was a happy success!).  I also thought it would be fun for a frosty canvas to add "frozen" droplets of water.

So after playing for a bit today, I feel refreshed and ready for the week ahead!

I wanted to create a canvas to celebrate the New Year and somehow a frosty landscape celebrates a clean slate, a type of starting anew.
