Polar love

I have another Polar bear page again today to link to Chrissie's choice of theme at Art Journal Journey which is Winter Wonderland.
I love watching wildlife programmes, especially if they have Polar bears in them.
I used yet another insert from the Radio Times for this page, which already had some mop up stencil ink on it. I stamped my swirly snowflakes using lilac and grey inks then used a glittery silver pen to highlight some of the snowflakes. I used some stickles around the edge of the photo then stuck my hand in some of it which transferred to part of the page, so I added more randomly over the page.
The stencil is one I have had for time, as were the cardboard stick ons. I thought the heart looked bit like a 'y' so I added some lilac paint and then wrote on 'love'.

I hope that you have great weekend and that come Monday Google haven't done too much damage to our blogs! Hmmm, 'New, improved' do not go together in my book! I don't really understand much about what is going to happen - Elizabeth explains it so much better so please see this link to find out more.

Thank for looking, Chris

OK, now you've done it. I've got to find my polar bears and create something. Although it won't be as good as yours, I was certainly inspired. It's a genuine beauty.

Super wintry art, Chris. I love the polar bears having a rest in the corner, the lovely lilacs and greys, the way you have made the "Snowy" letters, and the whole piece really.

Another precious page with those handsome polar bears!
There is something so cuddly and endearing about them even though well you know ;-)
Nature always fascinates me.
The photography nowadays is so brilliant...hard to get enough of those kinds of shows.

Golly, Chris - you have been busy. Seems like I hardly blinked and I've missed so many great things. Lovely to have a bit of time to catch up. I'm a polar bear lover too - how could one not admire these magnificent creatures? I can't bear the thought of the melting ice cap and the threats to their existence. Your snowy page is so wonderful - all those layers and swirls and delicate snowflakes - it has the energy of the snow flurries and the beauty of a winter wonderland. I love it.
