Oil's well that ends well
I tried to make this page look a bit like an oil painting. It's on mountboard, and I started by using a paint dabber to apply a layer of white acrylic paint. I deliberately left "brush marks" in it to give texture to it, and then let it dry. Using baby wipes/paper towel I applied distress inks to create the sky then I stamped the row of pine trees in black soot distress ink across the bottom. Finally I applied more white dabber across the bottom of the page and stamped snowflaks with white versamagic and used a white pen to apply dots for snowflakes.
