The magic of winter

Sharing a digital, hybrid, journal page with you this evening.

I made this for Art Journal Journey 

and Valerie's theme for this month of 
Light and Darkness
Then I remembered seeing that  the theme at 
was '' Trees''- for this fortnight, it seems so long since I was able to make something for this lovely Challenge blog, that I hope this page will be acceptable there as well.

As a starting point I used this lovely Christmas card  as a base. This is my way of recycling this pretty scene.[ it is signed on the back as being the work of Sue Fenlon]. I think I may be using some of the other lovely scenes that have been landing in my post box  recently,
 in a similar way.
The Digital additions are from
 Mischief Circus Kits.
 I have no idea who  the quote is by.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today, you are most welcome and your comments are always appreciated.

  17. That's such a good idea to use your Christmas cards in this way, and of course you still have the card.
    You've turned it into something beautiful with the way we now peep at the village through the trees, and with the lovely words.
    Have you had any snow or even frost? We are having this miserable mild weather, neither one thing nor the other, so I'll just have another look at your picture here.

  18. A really lovely digital collage and a super idea of recycling the beautiful card.
    You've created a wonderful scene!
