How is everyone today?? Are you happy and do you feel good? Did you create some art yesterday? I always seem to feel better when I'm creative, and I guess that's why the Creative Every Day projects are so successful. This year I didn't officially sign up but one of my own personal goals is to do something creative each and every day.
So yesterday I decided to participate in Michelle Ward's "Brave the Elements" challenge. If you aren't familiar with Michelle then proceed immediately to her website here and be prepared for gorgeousness to overwhelm you!!! (There are two links here; one for the challenge which is on a separate site and the other is her blog.)
So without further ado here is what I did for the challenge....
This was all about snowflakes. I cut the first one and it was HUGE! So then I had to make them smaller and that was the tricky part! My journal pages are only about 6" x 9" each so the snowflakes had to be small. Trying to fold and cut such small bits was not the easiest thing I've done lately! But I finally got a couple....one of them is glued in the upper corner. I also used some snowflake stamps and then it seemed too bare so I drew on the tree, painted it white, and wrote a couple of quotes about snowflakes along the trunk and lower limbs of the tree. I also used some scraps of blue around the edges for my border. I hope you like it. It's kind of difficult to get inspired by snowflakes when it's sunny and fairly warm outside!
