WINTER PARK - Video Tutorial - New Collage Sheet & Digi Image Set

It’s a beautiful day at Winter Park.  The sunshine turns the park into a magical place as the sun bounces off the ice-crusted trees and structures.
Skaters are taking advantage of the break in wintry weather enjoying skating on the park’s frozen pond; some are more graceful than others.
If you look closely, you’ll see small creatures enjoying the fine weather.
The fountain's cascading sprays are frozen in place creating a beautiful ice sculpture and trees are dressed in glistening ice.
A fancy horse-drawn sleigh chauffeuring fashionable ladies passes by.  The sleigh, courtesy of Leslie at Alpha Stamps, was the inspiration for this project.  You’ll find out about these cuties and more in my next project.
Looks like some have used the break in the weather to shop.

The overall dimension of this piece is 24” x 16”.  You might be thinking that it’s large but the good news is it made of multiple pieces that you can easily store separately.  Because it's modular, it also makes it easy to tackle as much or as little of the project as you like.

To complement this project, I created a new collage sheet “Ice Follies” and a new digital image set “Winter Park”.

This winter-themed collage sheet contains ladies and a gentleman frolicking on the ice as well as a beautiful sleigh pulled by horses.

This image set contains architectural pieces that can be used to create a winter park or other outdoor scene.  It also includes the skaters and sleigh found on the Ice Follies collage sheet for a total of 35 images.

In the video tutorial below I’ll be covering:
