The rabbit and the Snowman

A hybrid journal page for
where Valerie's theme for the month is 
Light and Darkness.

This is how the page began,
I used printed tissue as my base layer, which does look a dirty grey colour  in real life. I think it was because the brush I  used to stick it down with,  hadn't been washed properly. But this happy accident made me think of a fun, winter, scenario, with a dull evening  after a fall of bright, white snow.. The rabbit  was the front of a card I received from a friend. I always save cards to re use and a non crafting friend also passes hers to me.  
 I have made a note to myself to use them  more often.
The result has digital additions from Mischief Circus and Oscrap kits.

Can you just imagine a conversation on a frosty  night, between a snowman and a rabbit. With the rabbit accusing him of using one of his carrots for a nose.
Way back when. my boys always used a carrot for their snowman's nose and coal for his eyes.

I will also join in ....The Dreamers Challenge this week over at
where the theme is........... Snowman.

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