More fun with 13 @rts!

Oooh I haven't had this much fun in ages! 13 @rts, from Poland, is a new paper on the market and it is just awesome.  My last post I showed up a feminine girly page.  Today we're going deep into winter.  These papers are very versatile and a nice weight so that you can really apply the mixed media as I have done on this layout.  These papers are available now at the Flying Unicorn, here.

 Here in the south we really don't get much snow at all and you know after 5 years in Alaska and 8 years in Denver, CO, I miss snow in the winter!  Every once in a blue moon as they say, we do get the occasional freak snowstorm and that was what happened Christmas 2010.  It started snowing Christmas night and we woke up 12" of snow on December 26th. 

Nika was just an 8 month old puppy and being from Ocala, Florida, of course she had never seen snow before.  At first she was rather taken aback and looked at me like "what is that?".  But then with Chena by her side, she really immersed herself in the snow.  She and Chena chased each other all over the back yard leaping and jumping and really having a ball.  Of course I was out there with my camera trying to catch all the action.  This is a photo I got of Nika leaping through the snow.

I used a TCW mini mask and Golden fiber paste to create the snow splats.  Then I painted them with a snow cap dabber, topped and finally snow glitter.  I used an Alterations diecut fence th create my snow bank.  After cutting the fence I dabbed it with snowcap, then I took fiber paste and created the snow banks which I painted again with the snow cap dabber.  After that was dry, I painted it with Glitter snow and then sprinkled on some Diamond Dust for extra sparkle.  I added a few touches of icicle Stickles here and there.  The snowflakes were cut with a Martha Stewart punch and then covered with icicle Stickles.

These letters are foam that I coated with glue and then pressed into Diamond Dust.  Its a great way to give anything sparkle.  I also like to use it on flowers.

These leaves were cut with the ivy Cottage Cutz die and then I painted on Glitter Snow.  I helped it dry with my heat gun which caused the Glitter Snow to puff up a little bit and I think it looked more like snow as a result.
