snow layout


Hi!  Yuko Tanaka here.  

I'm really happy to be on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Guest Design Team.  Today, I'll be showing you by snow layout.  


The texture was created using the Whipped Spackle. 


 1.  Prep the surface with Gesso. 


2. Use a stencil to apply the Whipped Spackle and create texture. 


 3. Rub the Stamper' s Big Brush Pen over a heat resistant craft mat and mix the ink with the Whipped Spackle using the Palette Knife. 


4.  Apply the mixture with a Pallete 



5.  Lay the pallette knife flat on the Whipped Spackle and lift to create snow textures.  



6。Trace some of the textures with the Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. 


Thanks for looking!

Beautiful! :) I'm so intrigued by the mixed media stuff on layouts but so scared to try! You make it look so easy and sooo beautiful! :)


This is so, so pretty! I absolutely love it!!


Such a beautiful page, Yuko-san! Love how you colored the Whipped Spackle with the Stamper's Big Brush Pen - clever! <-- I will have to try this :) Oh and your model is VERY CUTE!! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration.
