Stillness is the flower of winter


I used  tiny scraps of free advertising papers for collaging on  package material of a new set of scissors that  I purchased recently .


 I found a nice photo ( here ) that I used as an inspiration for my collage.


I link to "Winter Wonderland "over at

Art Journal Journey

 Would be great to meet you there as well!
