Winter in my journal

The weather forecast says milder weather on the way but it felt jolly cold when we went for a walk earlier!
I did this page in my journal a few weeks ago but realised I hadn't posted it, so here it is - a very simple page.
The page started out as a mop up page so you can probably see some reversed letters from a stencil, some paint that came through the page from the other side, some bits of stamping to take the ink off. Of course there had to be some mop up paper towel LOL! I drew the bare tree and the grass and the evergreens were again scrap paper from the sides of my mat just doodled over! My attempts at lettering(I really do try)and some little black stars that my friend Lindsay gave me the other week just finish it!
Now, if you really want a feast for your eyes take a look at the Words and Pictures blog today! Alison has done a review of some of her work and it is amazing! So, don't hang around here, get yourself over there now!
Thanks for looking and for the lovely comments I've had lately, Chrisx

Oh, Chris, how lovely of you - thanks so much for the generous shout out!!

Gorgeous texture on your trees and another altogether enchanting page... I found myself saving some of my mopping up paper today and already writing the sentence in my head mentioning where I got the idea - so there'll be some reciprocation soon!!

Fantastic Chris, I too have started saving mop up paper! A lot of our snow has gone thanks to the rain, but it is patchy on the pavements, so still have to go carefully. Keep warm and dry now!

mop up pages are my favourite starting points! Lovely wintery colours :)
