Winter Wonderland (35/99)

Today is the start of our new theme over at
The lovely  Chrissie  is our host this month and she has chosen
WINTER WONDERLAND.
We hope that many of you will be with us this month again!

I started a spread by gluing on  a print of one of my older watercolor paintings 
 and drew a face on tissue paper that I glued over it. 

Final touches are made with  white oilpastel stick. 
The words are written with the black Pentel brush.

 Wishing to all my lovely visitors
 a Happy Healthy and Prosperous New Year !

  8. I guess she is the spirit of winter! It has finally arrived here so I should have plenty of inspiration for this month at AJJ. Somehow though its more inspiring when you dream of winter than when it is here. Ha-ha! Anyhow- love the winter piece today and hope you are having a wonderful New Years Holiday! Hugs!
