Hello and welcome. Today was mum's birthday. Happy Birthday Mother. I sent a card and a little something and Mr Postman actually delivered it on the right day. Fantastic. Isn't it great when it all comes together.
I'm still working with Christmas in unusual colours. Why not indeed....
Picked this box out of the plastic recycling bag the other day. My man bought something electrical and threw it away. I'll have that. It looks like it wants to be something else.....
I covered it in this peachy coloured handmade paper with batik style stars. So not my colour but the box loves it. Added a piece of lace around the top.
Over at Altered Pages it's all about elves. So here's my elf. I used a Rick St Denis image called Klub Kid Elf. I've coloured her with sharpies and a violet Wink of Stella brush from Altered Pages. If you look close you might see the sparkle. I'm not so good at colouring but I think I might be getting better at last. I admit to a having a couple of fussy cut accidents with a couple of her bells so I decided to used some rhinestones on the bells. Got to have some bling at Christmas.
I added another piece of lace to ground my elf. The holly picture is from Altered Pages Collage Sheet 1050D Christmas Ivy which I layered on gold mirror card. I did think this would have more embellishments but when I got to here it seemed a shame to hide any more of the gorgeous paper so there it is. A recycled box. All ready for some Christmas goodies.
