A creative woman has decorated her windows with a stunning winter snow scene - painted completely freehand. Sarah Ratcliffe, 42, tried her hand at some DIY Christmas decorating in her living room - and ended up with impressive results. The mum-of-two painted the entire design freehand after buying a bag of white acrylic paint for less than a tenner. Her designs feature dozens of snow-covered trees, a cosy snow-topped cottage and even a highland cow. Sarah, from Anston, Sheffield, said she spent a couple of hours on it each day for three days in late November in a bid to create a pretty background for further Christmas decorations to put on the windowsill. She said: “I have an eye for design – you just had to think about where the light and shadows fall. “I bought a big bag of white acrylic paint and only used about a third of it. “I hadn’t used acrylic before so it took me a while to get used to it – you can actually see I get a bit better as you move along the windows. “We’re quite big fans of Christmas decorations in this house – I guess in winter there is not a lot else to pass the time. “I’m not much of an artist but it wasn’t too difficult!” ENDS
