Little red robin - Mixed Up Magazine

Hello there! How are you? Keeping warm? Here's a little something I did for Mixed Up magazine some months ago. The canvas can be found on issue December 2017 / January 2018 on an article titled "Ice and Snow". The article has a step by step tutorial to make the piece. 

The background is made using alcohol inks and then there's acrylic layers on top. The sweet little birdie is done using a Sizzix die. I also added some embossing powder here and there to give a frosty feel to the canvas. 

The piece was inspired by a few things. First the time the magazine was to be published, I wanted to do a winter piece. The other inspiration came from a Finnish Christmas song, loosely translated as "sparrow on a winter morning". And the third thing was the sweet robin die I had from Sizzix. Then it all was just to think about the techniques to use to the piece! If you want to see what I choose to go with, please see the magazine! 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you all the best! 

Materials: Ranger, Prima Marketing, Sizzix, Wow Embossing Powder
