A Winter's Day

Isn't it strange to post a winter layout when I can hear my neighbor's lawn mower?  I guess I am a bit behind. 
I am starting to really use up some things I have had forever, and what I wanted to use was a ton of little October Afternoon labels.  When I like a product, I buy it ALL.  So I probably have like ten sheets of these labels.  And while I still love them, I need a little room on my clip it up.  I decided to layer some of them to the left of my photo.  I took it the day after some freezing rain, and the pine boughs were weighed down with ice.

I often listed to Paul Simon on Pandora, and coincidentally, "I am a rock" came on---a line starts... "a winter's day, in a deep and dark December".  I would've used the whole line but I took the picture in February and I am TRYING to be honest here folks :)  Seriously, I love getting my page titles from song lyrics. 
Here is a little closeup of my embellishments and labels. 
You can also see how I colored around the labels with some light blue watercolor pencil, and then spread it around a little bit with a wet brush!
Very simple layout in terms of photos and embellishments, but every once in awhile, I capture something beautiful about the season that lasts six months where I love...winter!
Hope everyone has some fair weather this weekend!
Thanks for stopping by:)


  1. Love the clean and simple look on this page, with the awesome clustering of the labels!! Love how you added your title and the flower embellishments over the labels too!

    Been a while since I've visited, I like the new look to the blog.
