Summer snow

Hello dear friends!
Today I'm hosting the Finnabair blog with a Summer/Wintery layout.


 I'm not happy that Summer is coming soon in the end and I'm not champ at the bit for Winter.
The fact is that I love both Summer and snow and I'm happy that I managed to put them together.
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 the perfect link between summer and winter as they falling down from the snowing sky into the sea to become one with the starfish.  


The White Crackle Paste, as well 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 glued inside with the 3D Gloss Gel 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 the 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.
