We tried to keep with the colors of winter and forest!

You can just go ahead and cover your page with color!



Once the you are completely done painting and the entire page is covered with paint – even in the corners… you can go ahead and peel off the masking tape.



We added a little course salt – to make additional snow!

In the light it twinkles!
