Summer Snow

Hello Lovely Readers!
Do you believe that opposites attract? :) Athanasia performed an interesting (and one might say quite risky ;) ) art experiment to make all kinds of opposites meet in one genius layout.
She's also sharing a step by step video tutorial and I'm more than certain you will feel tempted to follow Athanasia's inspiration. Enjoy!
Hello dear friends!
Summer and snow are my two favorite things of the year so I decided to make a page to include these two loves of mine. Despite the fact that they are two completely different things and they never exist at the same time, I wanted to incorporate them together in one composition and give them the chance to be together even for once. :)
On my page you can find seashells and summer colors, snowflakes and wintery feeling...
All these are well combined together with beautiful Mechanicals, Micro Beads and Glitter, flowers and chipboard pieces.
The Mechanical Stars made a perfect link between summer and winter as they are falling down from the snowing sky into the sea to become one with the starfish.  
The White Crackle Paste, as well as the White Gesso, constituted a beautiful base for the summer and winter colors and made all the different elements of the composition come together and incorporate in one piece.
This beautiful Mechanical flower is one of my favorite elements of the project because it looks like a snowflake and a flower at the same time and so lovely matches my theme. 
I used 3D Gloss Gel to glue inside a beautiful ring which was in the Mechanical set and inside a screw brand. 
I love how the Mechanical pieces complement each other and make new unique pieces. The combinations are endless! 

When I painted everything white for the Winter scene, I painted with different colors the Summer one. I used soft tones of Primary Elements in teal, brown and grey and Metallique Silver Spoon Acrylic Paint to make splashes all over the page.
In the video I made especially for you, you can watch how I put together this page.
I hope you like it and get some Summery/Wintery inspiration.



Thank you for visiting,
have a lovely crafty day!

I am awe-struck by the amount of embellishment!! The depth of interest, the colours and the way everything looks as though it belongs together. An incredible piece of work and I love it.
