Love will keep us warm

I am sharing a hybrid journal page for Chris's theme of
"101 ways to stay warm",  at......

This is how the page began, with a simple water colour wash base.
  I fussy cut some stamped paper Artsy houses. The sweet knitted bears having a cosy cuddle, were cut from an old magazine.  After I had added these images I  added a bit more paint before the photo was taken. Then it was off to the computer to have a  play.  No inky fingers for this  next stage.

I am adding a reminder for the current Try it on Tuesdays challenge theme.... Home Sweet Home....  you  get the information here.

I wonder which of these houses my bears live in?

Thank you for calling in to see me today, your comments and visit are always appreciated.

  5. This journal page touched my heart. I adored how the teddy bears were so in love with each other, and I can see they are keeping each other warm. It's a great AJJ entry and a fabulous TioT entry, too. Your mind must work all the time!

  6. What a lovely page for the 101 ways to keep warm theme. I like the houses and especially the bears keeping each other warm.

  7. Oh my! This really did go through the digi transformation in a beautiful way ! So romantic too and definitely one of the nicest ways to keep warm! I love your two bears! Hope you are keeping warm! Hugs,Chrisx

  8. A glorious fun page Yvonne, they certainly look warm and cosy :o)

  9. Such an adorable page and sentiment! I think your bears must live in the little house with the big door, it looks very welcoming and has a chimney so they can cuddle up in front of the fire 😉. Hope you've had a lovely weekend, we've had sunshine but it's turned a lot colder - brrrr! Wishing you a happy new week! J 😊
