Shiny Stuff Winter Garden 2

Here again with my second play at Winter Garden. My last piece, I felt was a bit overplayed, so this time, I tried to hold back a bit!

I used much the same as last time, with the addition of some very raggy hessian. I didn't brush my background with mica powder this time and I added some drips with watered down PA Snowflake.
It seemed very appropriate to add one of Lin Browns lovely sentiments, which I stamped onto Chatsworth paper. I also scribbled some leaves etc using a Derwent Inktense pencil. My snowflakes this time were perfect pearls!
Loving this theme thanks to the very talented Diane Taylor!


  1. Lovely, lovely, lovely! Have to admit the played down version is more to my liking but that's just personal choice. Love this one.

  2. After you mentioned Diane Taylor i visited her blog, wow she is amazing isn't she, have followed her as i really like her style.

    Wonderful page Hazel, i like both because they are from your heart and the heart cannot be tamed but it can produce some amazing results. Did i say i really like this, because i do!!! :-) xxx

  3. Love all the texture on this Hazel...another beauty! xxx

  4. That is lovely. The 'foliage' looks great.

  5. Wow, this is another beautiful piece - I'd be hard pushed to pick a favourite as they are so different to each other. I love the sentiment, it's so appropriate for the winter garden theme, and the foliage among the sparkly frost is stunning. Gorgeous work!

  6. Well, I'm going backwards so I haven't seen the first on yet, but I have to say I love this. The hessian adds such great rustic texture to earth the shiny stuff, and I love the drippage. (You could come and play Drip, Drip, Drop with us over at Country View Challenges too.)
