WHERE THE heART IS...MID WAY



Hello Everyone...

Brrr...a bit chilly today, but I'm home on holiday for this week and loving every minute of it..

The dog..[ Harry].. gives me such a look when I open the door...he takes two steps forward to go out and at least 11 back, then goes to the other door thinking Summer may be there..but no..it is raining both sides of  the house..poor Harry.

Today I'm here to share my mid way inspiration post for Where the heART is  ...lots of gorgeous entries so far..with an Anything Goes / "Winter Blues" theme..

I have another canvas to share...



This image is one from our sponsor Lacy Sunshine and the image is called Snow Bunny 

The background was primed with Gesso then a Blue Gelato rubbed all over with my fingers..

I then made the tree with masking tape and a branch for her to sit on...and painted it with acrylic paints.

Added some snow here and there...and lots of dies cut snowflakes with pearl centres...



A close up of the image and no idea why it went yellowy... but her wings are dripping with glossy accents and I added the tiny gems [finger nails adornments] and sparkled up her tights..



All her trims had the flower soft treatment to give a fluffy look..

There we go...all done..I'm off to find something to do..so thank you so much for stopping by..
and thank you for the fabulous comments on my birdhouse below..much appreciated.

I so love how you made that tree, it looks so real like. And love all the glittery stuff that you added on her fur trimmings too, so beautiful....

Harry sounds like one smart little guy not to want to go out in the cold rain! Rambo does the same thing.
