Winter Aconites – Kerstin Filou

Welcome creative friends!


February has come  and I have discovered the first snowdrops and winter aconites in my garden. 

 They are the first harbingers of spring here.

Cold, stormy winds are still whistling around the house and we see the sun far too seldom.


I was inspired to create a mixed media canvas in natural style.

Combined several nature chipboards, love this beautiful owl and grass cluster with leftovers from laces, cutting dies and stamps.

By the way, the colours also match our monthly mood board πŸ˜€

I was inspired by a snowy owl and played with some feathers as fluffy ears and wings.

 Deco snow was glued on the body as a feather dress.

Beautiful frame was firstly primed with white gesso,

 Then embossed with  a Textured ImpressionsFolder (Sizzix  3D  ‘Lumber’) and finally dry brushed with black gesso so it should look a little like birch bark.
