Happy New Year, I hope it's Happy, Healthy and Creative. I don't usually make resolutions but I am going to try to keep up with my little journal - as it really felt like 'playtime', so that's what we're starting the year with.
We may not have the snow at the moment, and Friday's snow has all gone but this little girl looks happy and dressed for snow, so when I found this image on the internet, well she just had to have a snowy page. Although 'something' happened to her friend when I printed her out, this little one was intact and looked happy enough to be on her own, so out came the scissors and the cutting began.
After deciding where she would stand I used a snowflake stencil and embossing paste and then sprinkled on some white EP and heat set when dry. I added a light watery wash of PaperArtsy Mermaid paint to a gessoed page and blended Tumbled Glass crayon around the edges before adding die cuts and the image, along with a computer sentiment.
Although I love Christmas, once New Year's Day is over, it's down with the decorations and trying to get back to normal as quickly as possible and hopefully a bit more 'playtime'
Thanks for calling in,
