Hi, I hope you have had a great week. I’ve just come back from a weekend away at my parent’s farm. I also got to attend my 20 year high school reunion! Wow, what a blast from the past, but it was great catching up people I haven’t seen in 20 years – I’m feeling rather old right at this moment!

Anyway, it’s my turn over on the Jane’s Doodles blog again today. Being winter here in Australia, this little snow man was begging to be coloured and placed into a snowy scene. It’s cold here now – so thankful for our wood fire! The idea of a cold Christmas is just so foreign to me, but I do like the idea of it! However, the closest I am going to get to a wintery Christmas, is to have it in June!

The diagonal stripes in the background were created with texture paste, coloured with some Peacock Feathers Distress ink. I think it creates a chilly background perfect for my snowman. He is coloured with Copic Markers.

It’s a bit hard to tell, but I’ve added some glitter to his hat.
