But the snow is now long gone, and Spring is on its way. I've tucked the snowmen safely away, and inspired by this fabulous V&A card tried to create a happy colourful string of bunting.... The card uses an original watercolour and wallpaper sample from the mid 18th centuary.
Without any fabulous wallpaper, I settled on some IKEA handmade paper that I had lurking in the wrapping paper stash. How much fun did I have? It gave me a lovely sense of peace to sit and quietly snip away, gathering and processing my thoughts form the day at work. Hands occupied and mind settled.
To get them to hang straight I resorted to ironing them flat & stiffening the paper a with some ehem, hairspray.
