In the bleak Mid Winter

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all staying warm out there. We have had quite a load of snow here in the UK and of course everything has now been badly disrupted as usual!!

So with all this snow and ice hanging around I thought I'd share a Wintery project I made with lots of yummy crackle and dried leaves, bark etc. I've included some close ups too so you can see all the little details.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

A Vintage Journey, Winter Wonderland

Simon says Monday, Christmas/Winter Holidays

Mixed Media Monthly, Believe

Decoart paints and crackle paste, Paperartsy stamp sentiment, That's Crafty substrates and loads of other stuff too!!

Hope you like it

  1. Wow your crackle looks amazing Donna, and totally love the branches weaved into the fence,- and the bark. And the quote makes so much sense, with the colors of coldness you used . Lovely lady this is a gorgeous creation, using both nature pieces, cloth and all the yummy products.
    Hugs, Dorthe, xx

  2. WOW! This is really awesome and the sentiment is so perfect to compliment your design. I'm thrilled you shared with us at A Vintage Journey. Merry Christmas, Autumn

  3. I'm so glad you included the close-ups - from the very first photo I wanted to dive in and see the details, from those brilliantly crackled lolly sticks to the textural bark and beautiful stippled colour on the face and on the words. Wonderful! Thanks so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.

  9. Gorgeous decoration Donna! I love how you used the lolly sticks and was wondering what you used for the base, did you just cut that out of card? Whatever you did, the result is stunning! I absolutely LOVE this!!
