Close to Nature - Part 1

A new challenge theme begins today on the That's Crafty! challenge blog, all the details can be found right here - the theme, which I absolutely love is 'Close to Nature'. 
I find time spent with nature is SO healing, it doesn't matter if I'm out walking Poppy in fields, woods, by the river or just sitting in my garden gazing at the moon or watching bumbles drifting in and out of my hollyhocks.

I had great fun decorating a MDF Round - have you tried them yet?, they're amazing - you can attack them with any medium and they just take it! I usually begin with a coat of white gesso before adding different colours of paint and then making my scene. I have used the following items, just click on them and you'll go straight to the item in That's Crafty! online shop:

I do hope you like it and find time to join in the challenge.
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
