A snowflake is either a single ice crystal or an aggregation of ice crystals which falls through the Earth's atmosphere. They begin as snow crystals which develop when microscopic supercooled cloud droplets freeze. Snowflakes come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Complex shapes emerge as the flake moves through differing temperature and humidity regimes, such that individual snowflakes are nearly unique in structure. Snowflakes encapsulated in rime form balls known as graupel. Snowflakes appear white in color despite being made of clear ice. This is due to diffuse reflection of the whole spectrum of light by the small crystal facets.

We would like you to use the reference/inspiration photo to create a piece "In Your Style".

This challenge is open to all artists, whatever your medium.

Please post your finished artwork in this discussion thread.

We're looking forward to seeing the diversity in art created by one reference/inspiration photos!

I've been sending these crochet snowflakes out with my Christmas cards this year.

This is the start of a snowflake blanket.

Nice Ariane!

Ariane, your friends and family are very lucky to be getting one of these with their Christmas card! I see a Christmas tree with white lights and your snowflakes all over it! Simple and sweet!
