Winter Scene Postcard

Inspiration quote by Robert Frost

"At last the gathered show lets down as white As may be in dark woods, and with a song It shall not make again all winter long Of hissing on the yet uncovered ground. "

CD Coaster

A while ago I receive a ton of used cd, after I did A Luna Park Carousel. How many carousels can I do?

So I found CD Coasters Tutorial in the net. I tried once, it was nice, but it's not my taste, I give it another chance, and I change little bit the design. I love the one with solid color and pattern dot. What do you prefer?
