It ws much colder here today, but the sun was shining, and I was able to have a good, long walk, which I enjoyed very much.
This photo was taken from the park, and my shadow was in the fields on the other side of the road!
I made another journal page for the 'silence' theme at AJJ.
I have used a photo of a Buddha head that I used to have. I painted the background with grey and black, and then sprayed some purple and green inks onto it, added a few drips of gold ink and some glitter, and sprayed it all with water to make the colours move. I stamped into the background using various background stamps without ink while it was still wet. I printed the photo out and fussy cut it before glueing it to the background. Then I added some metallic accents round the head with Inka Gold in gold and gunmetal grey. I outlined the head with a gold gel pen, and wrote the Buddha quote with a white pen. I like the way it has turned out
This week I got another Christmas present from Diane - she sent it off in good time, the German customs evidently held it up for nearly 3 weeks - thanks guys!
This beautiful card was in an envelope with a matching envie liner. It is a gate-fold care, with a wonderful hologram snowflake, just gorgeous.
The snow queen is inside:
And this is my WONDERFUL pedometer - what fun I am having running around with this! Tonight it is showing that I did 17,901 steps today, so that was good! I have been wanting a toy like this for a long time - thanks Diane!
And lots of lovely goodies - CDs full of ideas, tips and tricks, shiny materal, little cards with dried flowers, wooden frames, super earrings, and a whole pile of stencils that she cut with her Zing - wow!
Thanks again for your kindness and thoughtfulness!
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
