I didn't have a sketch pad handy so I have used A4 watercolour card & run them through the Bind-It-All. First, I swooshed (I love that word!!) Distress Inks on my paper in various blue tones & the mixed some acrylic white paint with water & splattered the card & me & the table, floor, wall, fruit bowl..... you get the picture! to give it a snowy feel.

I've cut my squares 4cm x 4cm from various left over scrap paper. As the months warm up towards July I plan to make my pages warmer & then towards autumn orangey & back to cool shades again as the year draws to a close.
