Welcome to the Scraps of Elegance Dec reveal of Winter Wishes Kit and monthly bloghop. It's packed full of winter surprises, some unexpected surprises and lots of gorgeous romance. Use this kit to stay inside and warm your heart.

The image is from an old postcard from Magic Moonlight Free Images.

I used the sketch based on Nov Sketch #4 by Kylie Obst at Kaisercraft.

As I was shopping the after Halloween sales at my local craft store, there sitting in the 80% off clearance bin of leftover “nobody wants me” ugly stuff, was a burlap covered canvas wall hanging. This was really awful and top notch ugly. So I bought it. I felt I needed to make apologies at the checkout counter for even thinking of scooping up such ugly stuff.

None the less, home it came. I know I was just gonna paint over it anyway. I glopped on gesso and paste and paint and stuff. A real mess means fun times and this is how it all ended up.

From there, I added the Kaisercraft elegant Turtle Dove collection.

Thanks for your time, your comments and your support. You, my friends, are the kindest. My blog has a ton of close ups. []
