Paper Haus Blog Hop

 Hello! Are you here for the Paper Haus blog hop? If you came from Marilyn's blog, then you are at the right place!

If you don't know what I'm talking about, then go to The Paper Haus Blog for all the details! Also make sure you are a fan of Paper Haus on facebook so you won't miss anything.

Paper Haus actually has 12 giveaways going on in the next 12 days! And they are all amazing, I wish I could win myself! :D


 Want to see a little creation I made to help get everyone in the Christmas/winter spirit?





I drew these little guys by hand and used a bunch of paint, sprays, stamps, stencils etc. I used a few rub-ons from Stampin' Up.

I was definitely inspired by Christy Tomlinson's Winter Whimsy Workshop, and this image I found on pinterest. They are made by Country Kitty.



And, I made this digital version of a snowman like Christy's:

I drew him myself and added products from Captivated Visions, (click on it for full credits) and I used digital brushes etc, to get him looking just right :) I use GIMP.

(Just a note: I get a lot of comments asking how I make digital collages like this. It's not an easy question to answer, honestly....but if you do have specific questions I'd be happy to answer, if I can!)


Now, make sure to follow the blog hop and go to the next in line, to Linda's blog, Favorit Spot on Earth!
