Last of Winter

............last winter project for me.......  On the altered collage etsy  forum a few decided,  to help spur everyone on, to have a monthly challenge. I guess it's to help, you know get those  creative juices flowing, the ones you have to  dig way down deep for.
                                     ...........the theme ...........SNOW

So here is my little project adding to the pile, although I haven't seen any buddy else's as of yet. hmmm

A first for me........... a altered collaged journal .  I must admit it was a fun project, with a little help from my friend.
I admire all those who sell their cherished pieces, a lot of time goes into all the details
............................................. TA DA.........
My Snow Journal



.............and an enlarged pic just to show off the details huh...........
  I had these cuckoo clock ends just sitting in my stash and thought they`ll work nicely to add interest to the ends of the ties.
And of course you have to have a little rust  ........Some raised snow flakes..........
The back ground paper came from Just Something I hand Made   I adjusted the colors a little.

A chickadee painted in acrylics, because you just have to have a bird with winter!
.............and a tiny bit of blink for one snowflake centre, from a re purposed rhinestone...........



..........................so out with winter.......... and let's SPRING  forward into COLOUR......................
Thank you for taking a peek.........................
