These will be my thoughts and ideas for crafting as I journey through the world of scrap booking and other paper crafts.

I got around to adding more to my lastest canvas. I decided to make a girl skating as my winter theme this time. I made some stencils of some swirls from strong Poly pocket PVC and used them to create the swirls on the canvas. One I simply stippled with some pearlised white acrylic paint and sprinkled some coarse glitter over it to give a bit more sparkle the others I sprayed with some blue Cosmic shimmer ink spray. I fixed it with some hairspray before sealing it with some Mod Podge. It did bleed as I brushed the Mod Podge over it but the hairspray did stop it smudging too much. The rest was stippled through some punchonella and stamped with background stamps and Stazon ink. Lastly I added various rub ons.
I cut out the girl from black card because I wanted her to be a sort of silhouette figure. I pleated and adhered some tissue to create her skating outfit and skates. I used very narrow white ribbon to made the belt and bow. I made the fur effect around her hood, sleeves and boots using glue and flower soft.
Its a bit late in the day now but I'll try to upload the stencils for the swirls for you in my next posting.
