A Paris Tag

The theme is Paris over at Tag Tuesday.
  Despite using pretty much everything 'Paris' that I had - rubber stamps, stencil, real stamps, and a photo image it still doesn't scream Paris to me!  Perhaps it's the colour, which somehow morphed from pretty spring colours into rusty autumn ones - don't ask me how!

Winter Garden Collage and WOYWW

This little winter collage is sitting on my work table at the moment, and I've been wondering what else needs to be done to it - something does but I'm not sure what!  It was inspired by my garden which has little houses in it to help the wild life through the winter - a couple of hedgehog houses and several bee and insect houses.  I was keeping the nest image for a more Spring-like collage but decided to use it as we've had lots of birds gathering twigs and nesting materials for the last few weeks, and a couple of Magpies have been fussing around a large half built nest in our Hawthorn tree this week.

I am linking up with Julia over at WOYWW this week.

Pussy Willow In Winter and WOYWW

At long last I've finally found some motivation to open my sketchbook, and I've been working on an old theme of mine: the garden in winter.  Pussy Willow is always a favourite at this time of year so when I came across an old stencil of it that I don't think I've ever used it kick started me to get some ideas down!

I stenciled the pussy willow, then covered the buds with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with micro beads - I was trying to get a frosty feel.   

 I'm linking up with WOYWW, so why not pop over if you would like to see what other people have on their desks this week!
