Christmas Robin by Samantha Read
I then adhered them, one on top of the other.
I then covered the card board base using tissue paper, this can be any colour because it was painted.
Once dry, I gave my base a coat of white gesso, then a sky blue paint. I then used PVA glue to get the crackle effect I wanted. It's easy to do. Paint a generous layer of PVA glue and whilst it is still wet paint the colour that will be crackled over the top. This needs a light touch or you just mix glue and paint. As it dries a wonderful crackle is achieved.
Stamp, colour and cut out the robin and the holly, they work so well together!
To complete I added some white, snow paste and some glitter glue for sparkle and simply adhered the robin and holly in place. Final touches were glossy accents to the holly berries.
I do hope you like it and I have inspired you, thank you for looking.
Wishing you a lovely day, Samantha :)
