AEDM 1and 2 TAD TAG TIOT CAS Critter

 Click image to enlarge!
Acorn artwork
This is my entry for Tag tuesday. Most of the acorns has natural patterns. 
Six of them I painted on. One tree and the lower row are partly painted. The rest is nature. 

And two more painted. The background "sky" are natural (pink and yellow)
For CAS  Sympathy on stormy waters and wind. Sorry I did not get it on the image. 

I just LOVE the Acorns. So many of  them are tiny, natural artwork. I think some of the patterns are created by larva, but I´m not sure of what creates the pink colors. I think the yellow is the natural look. 

Frosty deer

Golden deer

The DEER is created on thick glitter paper as background. 
The deer, the ice and star are stickers. More or less transparent. 
And for the green one. I happened to turn on the light. And it created a Lighteffect.

    All the best Jan
