February's finished 2 page spread
Yes, I was behind on working on my monthly Smash book pages. This morning I gathered a few items, grabbed my Smash book and started working on a two page spread for February. February was really cold here in Massachusetts and we had lots of snow so why not work on a snow theme.
I first covered the orange page with gesso. Then I glued a piece of snowflake tissue paper over the Gesso. I cut out a decorative napkin and glued that to the page. Glued a piece of sheer Let it Snow ribbon to the top of the page. I found a brown cardboard snowflake which I coated with Gesso and added Martha Stewart snow glitter on the top of the wet paint. I used a Tim Holtz ticket to journal on. Lastly, I smeared Gesso onto a piece of bubble wrap with my fingers and stamped the page with it.
finished right hand side of page
I kept the blue and white background that was on the Smash book page. I glued a small calendar page to the left hand upper corner. Cut out and glued a decorative napkin over most of the page. Added some snowman stickers. Used bubble wrap with Gesso and stamped on the page. I also glued on large plastic snowflakes in dark blue, silver and a medium blue. Finally, I wrote...Snow Snow and More Snow 2013.
I already have an idea for March's pages. Do you use decorative napkins in your artwork?
