I forgot about one Christmas project! :)
I made it for Prima Art Recipe this month.
I love to make Christmas decorations and gifts, but packaging is just as important to me. Such handmade bags will give even an ordinary gift a special character. It doesn't take much to create something like that. You don't need special products to create pretty snow or frost effects. You actually just need White Gesso, some shiny paints, and a thick glitter.
I used Art Alchemy Sparks paints - I splattered them to get a lot of shiny dots. To get the frosty effect, I recommend using Pearl Glass Glitter. It looks like tiny pieces of ice and it's easily to adhere - simply use ordinary glue or gel medium (Soft or 3D Gel). Gesso is also excellent for making splatters. Just add a little water, mix well, and splash like paint. Good luck!
