A Winter Rose

I wanted to share something a little bit different and special with you all today...and some of you might remember that I showed you a teeny tiny, sneaky peek last week of this project.

As some of you know, even before I was lucky enough to work with the wonderful decoupage images from The Crafthouse Press, I've always loved Suzanne Woolcott's Gorjuss illustrations. There is just something so endearing about them and something that totally appeals to the artistic side of me and because I always see like to think of what I do as little works of art...I decided to do something different and use the decoupage images to make a wall hanging and here it is....
I think that the Winter Decoupage kits were absolutely stunning and probably my favourite so far and together with some handmade roses, using templates and paper products from Inspire Me, I was over the moon with how this turned out and I'm really proud of this and couldn't wait to show you all and hope that the photos do it justice. I really wanted to show everyone the dimension in this piece.
And finally, here it is hanging in pride of place...
So, hope you all had a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by to take a look at my work. It's always lovely to get your comments and to welcome new followers!!
Love to you all...


  1. This is such a beautiful piece of work Emma. There's a lovely crispness to those colours - I just love it!

    Love Lynda xxx

  2. YAY! more Gorjuss goodness! :D

    and what a PERFECT title for this bit of of art! love the muted pale colours in the Gorjuss Illustration...the frosty blue & egg shell works wonderfully to convey that feeling of winter...and the bits of snowflake are a lovely touch! and of course those wonderful Winter Roses...just beautiful!

    I LOVE IT!!! <333
