Winter is Wonderland

'When cardinals appear, Angels are near.'

I made this digital winter interpretation on the challenge themes:
'Cardinals' at the Three Muses , 'Winter Wonderland' at Try it on Tuesday, and Chris's 'All Kinds of Weather' at Art Journal Journey Challenge.
 I overpainted the cardinal image with digital brushes to make it look better, added the angels image, typed the quote, and added some shadow effects and the 'Let it snow' logo. The Image materials are freebies and my design was made with my photoshop elements.
Last night we got the first snow cover here on the southern coast of Finland.
Thank you for visiting and the comment you leave.

'Talvi on ihmemaa'
Tämän digikollaasin tein teemoihin: 
'Punakardinaalit', 'Talvi on Ihmemaa' ja 'Kaikenlainen sää'.  
Käyttämäni kuvamateriaali on ilmaiskuvia. Maalasin linnun digisiveltimillä parantaakseni sen laatua, lisäsin enkelien kuvan ja 'Satakoon lunta'-logon sekä varjostustehosteita, kehyksen sekä kirjoitin sanonnan:
'Kun kardinaalit ilmestyvät, enkelit ovat lähellä.'
Saimme viime yönä ensilumen tänne etelärannikolle.
Kiva, kun poikkesit blogissani.

Oh my gosh, that page is beautiful! Love the look and the concept. Cardinals in ice/snow are so cool. Your window looks very cold! Wow - a foreign concept here in Southern USA - I love how it looks but it would be too cold for me!

It is cold and frosty, isn't it? WE were cold yesterday, with arctic wind. Brr. I had hoped to walk but it was too chilly. But I think the wind has died down so maybe today. I love your beautiful cardinal piece and the angels. I haven't heard that quote, but it is wonderful. I will remember that one. I hope your week is going well and you are well too. Hugs-Erika

This is beautiful and I love the 'wild things' piece too. You are so talented! Your frost picture is pretty. We are cold here too-it snowed yesterday but melted right away. Stay warm!

Thank you ladies for your kind comments. By the way, The quote is based on the fact that cardinals were leading dignitaries of the Roma Catholic Church. So angels are near the church too 👼

What a great digital visual interpretation of these themes, Sirkkis. I love the play on words, too. This double meaning could not be overshadowed by my love of cardinals, though. Thank you ever so much for sharing this beauty with us at Art Journal Journey using Chris's theme.

I forgot to mention that I had a window in my last home that frosted over like that every winter. It brings back memories of those days that I thankfully don't miss.

If this is true, then angels are always near me, as we see them frequently here. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in my world, and on my list of things for which to be thankful will be the fact that I get to enjoy your talent, my friend!

Your window photo is beautiful, what a lovely background that is for your journal.
I loved the page you shared with us today. being in England I have never seen a cardinal. How bright they are and what a beautiful bird to be able to see. A lovely page with a gorgeous background of snow on branches and two beautiful little angels.
Hugs, Neet xx

A beautiful page Sirkka, I've never seen a Cardinal but they look a stunning bird with their red feathers and a great contrast to these sweet little angles.
We've just had our first snowfall this winter - I love your picture.
Thanks for sharing at Try it on Tuesday. Avril x
