PaperArtsy Challenge Jo Myhill #1 No2

Hello again Crafters.
Here is cold outside and near the mountain is white with snow.
Jo Myhill and Darcy Wilkinson have showed us great project over at
PaperArtsy Blog this week.Jo's and Darcy's
I was inspired to work on the Jo Myhill project #1.
She caught a moment of small things and she created it.(I think.)
She used Grunge Paste with effect and made crackle.
I tried GP and crackle.
I found withered weeds on the street, It was appeared from between the concrete
cracked. I took few weeds and added my panel.
I have only 15 x 15 cm wooden frame, this timeI need more bigger size.
Then I made it.

I put GP on the background, and stamped Mini20 on the GP.
I made ​​a crack on the Snowflake and Elephant to the base Baltic Blue.
This time was nice.

I used for layer corrugated board, Medium Oak Leaf die cut and weed with ribbon.
Frame I painted by French Roast and Snowflake onto it.
Then sanded 2 times after I stamped Mini26 with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
Panel and frame distressed by TH Walnut Stain ink.
I finished with Treasure Gold.

Thank you for stopping by.
One more time!  Have a happy Christmas!!
