Frozen flowers- mixed media piece using dried flowers and Sculpture Medium

Hi Arty Souls!
Today I tried something else :) I was going to throw away the old bouquet where I though that maybe I can use it for a project:) I wanted to create an effect of flowers covered with frost and snow:)
And Sculpture Medium by Prima Marketing was perfect for it. I glued the flowers  to mdf board first using gel medium, then I put generous amount of scultpure medium, after that added a little bit of watercolours just to bring the texture out;) Around the edges I used Snow Paste by Prima Marketing.
At the end I sprinkled it with white glitter:)

Watercolour love

 Hello Arty Souls:)

Since I attended fabulous workshop with Danielle Donaldson, I am in love with watercolours:) And I do have my favourites already:) I use Watercolor Confections by Prima Marketing. They are coming in cute small and portable tins and they are combine in little colour pallets. There are 5 different pallets so far and I have four of them and I love all of them:) They have very strong pigment which allows to use them also in mixed media. These two paintings I made on white canvas 20cmx20cm. In the first one I used the Shimmering Lights set and I love its calm and natural tone:) As you can see, I added some embellishments too. One you add a little bit of gesso, watercolours will flow:)
 Here I used the Pastel set which has my favourite mint colour in it:)

 These are other three sets:
Do not be afraid of watercolours, just take time to play with them and to observe them:) And I can assure you, they are fun to works with:)
