Journal Prompt #50

The prompt this week is festive again.  That is the prompt for the whole month actually.  I had so much fun creating this page.  I felt like a five year when I got out my glitter glue and decorated this tree.  Positively gleeful.  I used paper that I had crumpled and dyed, love the texture that creates.  I added round pearl stickers to make this a very fru fru tree.  Definitely, a theme going with fru fru trees.  At the bottom of the page, I simply wrote Oh Christmas tree how lovely are your branches.

Work in Progress Wednesday

My stitch a day project for December is coming along.  I love the fabric background I created with oil pastels.  I have quite a collection of six-inch squares from the projects I have been doing this year.  I haven't quite decided how to use them.  Not all will go together so it can't be one big piece.

Sinchie Guild Challenge

The challenge colour for our sinchies this month is purple.  I am having a blast creating these funky six-inch squares.  They are perfect for exploring and experimenting.  Two of my most favourite things to do!

Journal Week #49

The prompt this week was simply festive.  I wish I would have used better paper to create this page but I had a lot of fun playing and creating this.  The quote I used says 'At Christmas, the light of each of us helps light the night with another kind of luminosity: all so much silver and moonlight mixed in with strings of dancing Christmas lights.'  Timothy Dudley-Smith

Working Progress Wednesday

This is my bead journal for December.  There isn't much left to do on it.  I have really enjoyed stitching this one.  It will likely end up being a part of a crazy quilt.  I have received a lot of oohs and ahs from the people that have seen this one.  I guess everyone loves a fru fru Christmas tree.
