Shall We Dance? Snowfolks Canvas, Crafty Sentiments, DecoArt Media and TTCRD

Hello from Joi@RR!

In the snow???  
This little snow couple is ready to tap it out!!!

Not this Texan... brrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
But I know a lot of you snow folks out there would
dance in the cold until your feet were numb :)  
In my day... 
I might to the Texas Two Step until mine were numb!!!

This project was done on a 8 x 10 canvas board
which was mounted on cedar.

First item was to find the right size lid or bowl
to make a circle for my snow globe and sketch!

For the 'table' I used a stencil entitled 
"Woodgrain" from DecoArt Americana Decor. 
The snow globe was outlined with a 
Faber-Castell artists Pitt Pen. 

Marking around where the digi image would be... 
I just began painting with metallic silver and white gesso.
No plan - just light and loosely adding the background.
For the "table" I used a stencil entitled
'Woodgrain' from DecoArt American Decor.

After adding the digi image with Matte Medium,
it was time to make them come to life!
Keeping it a bit monochromatic, 

 The darling couple were painted with Translucent
White, Prussian Blue Hue, Metallic Silver and
Snow Writer Dimensional Paint.  

When everything was dry, the snow globe
was covered with DecoArt Media Liquid Glass
and Glamour Dust Iced Crystals.

It was fun to add a little extra texture with 
the Pixelated Stencil by DecoArt Americana

The words were added with the wonderful graphite
transfer paper - it leaves such a nice imprint. 

After all was completed, the canvas was varnished with
DecoArt Media Satin Varnish. It was then mounted
on a heavy glitter paper from my stash. I cut the
flowers on her bonnet from the same paper! 

Here are a few close-ups. 

Lots of fun texture!!!
