Winter Wonderland

Hello there......I can't believe its the 3rd of January already and Christmas seems ages ago.
 Its a miserable rainy grey day here on the East Coast UK and if it could snow everywhere except on the roads and pavements, I'd rather that than the rain.
And I've been thinking about snow as the lovely Chrissie from Jumbled Crafts is hosting on AJJ new theme Winter Wonderland this month
Using various images/clip art, I made this digital piece which I am linking to Art Journal Journey for the challenge.



I wanted to add another image to this piece but instead I made another digital page with the first and reduced the size and over laid a photo of a Brusho background I created. I digitally blended it over the top with 'colour burn blend' and added another layer of snow and then for fun a photo of two snow people I made. ( I won't tell you how old I was when I made them ha ha )




The words say :   Mrs Jack Frost waves her magical icy wand and all at once there is a  wonderful Winter Wonderland...

Thanks so much for stopping by..
I do appreciate it

Your Winter Wonderland is magical, makes me shiver. I wish it would snow here.
Your two snowmen look very happy, maybe they are a Mr. and Mrs. Snowpeople?

Wonderful, Gill!! I love both - can't decide which one more...
The first one is a very typical winter-painting and I love the lady who is dancing there. I wished I could be that enthusiastic about winter and snow as she seems to be. And I had to laugh about your lines about snow everywhere ecxept streets and pavements...
The second has its own kind of winter feeling and I love your snow ladies anyway how old you have been building them: They are winter beauties (beautys ??)
