Green Paper Challenge: Winter Snow

Mary at Green Paper hosts a collage challenge each month,
so here is what I created with the inspirational images provided by Mary for March.

The base is an unwanted dvd. 

After downloading Mary's challenge images,
I started by altering the colour balance so all three images toned together,
then printed them out on white card.

To decoupage the lady, I printed her out four times.

All the cut edges were inked with Distress Ink (peeled paint).
The front was covered with one image, then the different layers built up.

I added two old buttons threaded with light silver metallic thread.

The red stamp is taken from a previous challenge, giving a much needed boost of colour.
I punched two holes in the top
& used a piece of old white satin ribbon to create my hanging loop.

The back is covered with an image from Mary's free download collection.


  1. This is very cool! I just love seeing how differently everyone uses the same 3 images. Wonderful use for a useless CD. Nice job!

  2. Wow! The built up layers of the figure are wonderful with the layers of the background. Great piece!

  3. Lovely project and a great way to recycle all of our unused CD's. Sue x

  4. This is superb Daisy! Brilliant layering, great idea to decoupage the image of the skating lady. Beautiful artwork.
