What to wear???

Hi everyone, finally we have a fridge freezer - just waiting for it to get to the correct temperature now and then tomorrow a big shop!!
It hasn't been so bad as I think I may have mentioned we have been able to have our freezer blocks frozen and replaced each day for our cool bag, so we have always had milk and cheese. Fortunately the local shops have been handy too and we have had a couple of meals out too! Of course for the first few days without it we were spending time at our caravan! 
We have also been able to keep fruit and veg cool on our balcony as the weather has been, well, shall I say fresh?

So…what to wear?
When I saw a pack of tissues with these sheep on I could just imagine them jumping. I prepared the page with some brushed on paint, and some background stamps. The sheep were carefully torn around(with a little help from a wet paint brush)and stuck on with multi media gel. I drew in the bounces and wrote the words with a Pitt pen. 
I realised too late that I had used an alternative spelling of 'woolly' but decided that it would be OK (one of the perks of being a Scrabble player!)
I finished it with a little doodling around the edges.

I am so enjoying seeing how many ways to keep warm there are already so Thank you so much for joining in the '101 ways to keep warm' theme at Art Journal Journey!

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

love those sheep!! I think you could fit in an extra 'l' if you wanted to.... Great page! Glad you've got your new fridge freezer - at least yours didn't pack up in the summer like mine did!

These sheep are adorable. I like their extra clothing for them to stay warm-like the scarves. Perfect ways to stay warm. Hugs-Erika

What an INCREDIBLE find. I am sure I would never have thought of these, so even buying the tissues wouldn't have been an option. That's a great way to think outside the box, and turn it into a fabulous AJJ entry, too. Your hosting skills are fabulous this month and I'm loving everything you have created.
