A wonderful day!

This LO is made for March Challenge at Scrap Perra. The challenge is to use black, white and one more color. I chose greyish purple as I thought that would bring out the cold and warm colors in the picture.

As usual I used a lot of gesso and acrylic paint on the background (with different techniques). I used white to create a feeling of snow and the greyish purple to capture the colors in the ice. (Black is found on the frame around the LO and in the twine. I also used some black paint.) Here’s some close ups:

  6. Åh vilken vacker layout! Färgerna är fantastiska tillsammans! Och va fint det blir med gesson och akrylfärgerna! Och halvpärlorna! Ser ut som om snön i bilden flyttar ut/fortsätter på LO:n liksom.
