First I will show you a cross I made the other day.
I had  this wooden cross cut out for a long time , and
finding it late October, naturally made me wish for a 
festive christmas cross, so I started with stenciling on top of
the whitepainted cross, then added silver paint and silver leafe
in the tips, and a faux  Cameo in the center.
The roses are handmade, too 

Here you see the "cameo" with silver glitter around !!

The next neutral is another winter card, using the
wonderful scate die with embossed background, fur,and a glitter
snowflake .

The glitter is not seen real well here !!

Lastly a little angel, created for my very dear friend,
using a paper pulp head ,bought on Etsy, I used an old
handkerchief for her dress, and created wings of papers and lace .

I painted the face minimalistic ,and her hair too.

I hope you like my neutrals listed this week, which I`m


Please have a look at all Wen`s beautiful  photoes and paintings ,also ,-here :

It's soo lovely with the textures, fur, and wonderful 'aged' inking and stencil. The Angel is completely gorgeous Dorthe. I love her handkerchief dress that is beautiful~ And sweet angelic wings~ I so enjoyed looking through your post - I may be late for work : ) Have a great day, Karen O

I love how you have altered the cross, Dorthe - it has such a beautiful shape and you've made it look stunning with the shimmer and the brooch. Great card with the skates and such a sweet angel - another wonderful post full of neutrals.

Oh some divine Christmas creations going on in your home sweet friend with your altered cross in white and silver crackle paint embellished with the cameo. So pretty and love your darling little angel all dressed in her handkerchief dress and halo and wings. Your card with the skate boots is amazing with the fur lining the tops over layers of beautiful lettering and stamping with the snowflake and holly. You are such a clever chic!
It is is any consolation sweetie - it has been pouring rain for the last two days with two more days of this to come! Oh the poor roses are drowning - sob! sob! It is supposed to be warm and sunny!
Sending you warmth from my heart instead
with hugs and love,

What a beautiful treasure you have created from a simple wooden cross dear Dorthe ♥ with the perfect touches of silver and more...all so lovely.
Your lovely card with ice skates is oh so precious.
The rabbit fur cuffs and jewels make them so luxurious.
What a precious angel with her sweet face.
She looks like she is saying a prayer.
This Neutral challenge is perfect for you and the of the wonderful things you create and share!!!

Dear Dorthe
The cameo at the centre of the cross is perfection especially with the beautiful colours. I would never have the imagination to use a cameo in this way but it is incredibly stunning.
Then the precious Christmas card. We have in the loft a pair of white skates which my Mum would wear when she was a very young woman. I think vintage ice skates are so lovely, maybe for this reason, trying to imagine my Mum enjoying fun on the ice!
The angel is a treasure for me already! She is looking at me as I write this comment :)
We had thick fog today, very little visibility with the cloak of fog!
Goodnight my friend.

Utrolig så smukt et kors du har fået lavet - helt fantastisk. Dine engle er bare så flotte. Jeg sidder lige nu ved den fine jeg fik. Den er så dejlig.

Each of these three are truly beautiful Dorthe. The transformed cross is divine in every sense of the word, it's a lovely shape and the centrepiece is wonderful. Then I really love your card, especially the fabulous fur topping, how decadent - brilliant idea. Finally the little angel doll is so very sweet and pretty. How talented you are. Nicola x

Hello Dorthe,

Your post is full of inspiration, as usual. You are very talented. I love your angel with her handkerchief dress, so delicate and sweet. Lovely Christmas decorations.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Dorthe, I love your beautiful neutrals. The cross is just gorgeous and the winter card is so pretty. I love the skates. Such a darling little angel you created too. She looks very vintage the way you did the face. Beautiful designs my friend. You are so talented!! Thanks for sharing your neutrals. Have a great weekend. xo

Love, love, love your sweet little angel Dorthe! I would love to use my hankies the same way if you don't mind and give them as a little gift to my granddaughters, they would love them. Your cross is beautiful and the vignette you have made with it for the photos is so pretty with the hand made flowers.
I always love your pretty cards. You add so many unique elements to each one.

I am so glad that I ever found you, because you really get my creative juices flowing and want to to sit down and make something.
sending hugs...
