Wintry PaperArtsy Page

Hello all, it's sneak peek time again here at Words and Pictures.  I'm delighted to be guesting over at the PaperArtsy blog today, and I've got some Wintry Journalling to share with you there.


I hope this will tempt you to hop over to take a look at the whole page.  It's always great to hear what you think... especially when I end up playing in journals just to see where I end up.

We seem to have hit our festive stride here at Words and Pictures, so if you missed my Vintage Journey Secret Santa make (prizes on offer!!), or my candlelit stop at Destination Inspiration, then wrap up warm and off you go!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon, either here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland.

What a severe yet master artist old Winter is.  No longer the canvas and the pigments, but the marble and the chisel.
From The Snow-Walkers, John Burroughs, 1866

I am a texture person (ie I love anything with texture) so I was instantly drawn to your thumbnail on the Bloglovin Daily. When I saw your blog name underneath I just knew it had to be something special. Thanks Alison - now to heading over to PPA to see the whole page.
Thank you for sharing your artwork as you do, something to look forward to each time - and may I take this opportunity of wishing you and yours a Very Happy Christmas.
Love
Neet xx
