Hello everyone..

A bit of a gloomy day here today but warmish, for me it is warmish, not sure about the lady that just walked passed while I was gazing out the window eating a banana..she had a coat and scarf on and a woolly hat..really!!..and walking, I would have dissolved right into the footpath..rightio, moving on..

I have something bright and fun today, using again, the Vera Lane images, this time the little houses...

Decided I needed space to work so I made an Art journal page..and sprayed my little heart out..

Messed up the texture paste, I pressed to heavy, should have scraped it off, but didn't

The paste picked up a bit of the colour from the ink sprays..but I went  with it.

Made snow banks and glittered up the edges..

splattered with white ink..

Die cut trees [the die from my friend Chrissy a long time ago] and added paste snow drops on them..messed most of them up as well..

and then put it all together and made a village snowy scene..using the houses images from Vera Lane..

They were all coloured brightly and the numbers come on the houses..

To make a village I cut the house out several times and added a one to the house number, as they only go up to 10 and I wanted more to make them go up to 20..

Added my trees, some tucked behind snow banks and nestled behind houses..

So there you go, my little colourful village..a lot of fun to make..

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope everyone is safe and happy, I'll see you again soon..
