Scrap Around The World January mid-month reveal - close-ups of my page "Waiting"

Hello there!

Phew! WHAT a week it has been in the office! boy did I wait for this weekend to come!

Winter has arrived to Stockholm even if we haven't had much snow thank heavens. Our cats make a quick dash out onto the balcony and then quickly in again. Just like me, they prefer the cosy warmth under a blanket.

The Scrap Around The World January mid-month reveal has gone live, and as I am in the second group, my take on the moodboard was in it.

Here is first the moodboard and then close-ups of my page "Waiting";

I used a base of both white Bazzill cardstock and 
thick cream coloured handmade water colour 
paper before adding papers from Polish 
UHK Gallery. It's really fabulous as it's resist.

Mists, gesso, Shimmerz TextureZ, pearls.

All the flowers on my page are stash-raided, 
mainly Prima but there
are a couple of Maya Road lace ones too.

Silver microbeads and Melissa Frances Mica flakes
for added wintery shimmer.

Beach huts waiting for summer.


UHK Gallery "Winter is Coming"
Basic Grey "Mint Julep"
Fussy-cut blue blooms from KaiserCraft "Forget Me Not"
