Jingle Belles Rock wk 3

Hi there ... 
This weeks' challenge at Jingle Belles Rock is to use acrylics paints ... naturally the ingenious Lauren and the very talented Stef ... have no problem with coming up with incredible examples for us ... and whilst I love to try new things and learn from others ... I am not one to really use acrylics on cards ... save for the odd touch here and there ... with great trepidation! I love to use acrylics on projects ... it's just so easy ... but I guess we all have a certain 'style' that we adhere to and if I am not happy with a card ... it gets taken apart or shelved ... I won't add something just because ... BUT ... I did want to continue with this challenge and not betray my 'style' ... then I came up with the perfect compromise ...



See, I kept this cute robin from an old card ( yep, more recycling) and seeing the 'snow' ... I decided to add a background to match ... Black card splattered with white acrylic paint!! and it works! and I am happy with it too, cos' I still have all my trade mark 'bits' ...


And you know what? I really enjoyed making this and will do it again ... there is something liberating about splattering paint and getting messy ...

Till soon
