This was the perfect challenge for me this week. We had to use a quote about stillness from Oprah, 1 calendar and masking. Journaling: "Stillness is waiting...Stillness is you"...Miles - it is my gift to you. Learn to be still, learn to be one with Nature...in your stillness you can listen, you can receive.
I also created the 3 books of wisdom, hope and faith using the metal pieces from 3.5 diskettes. I then used Adirondack's silver and gold alcohol inks to antique the metal. I glued heart and star brads on each. I also glued small sheets of card stock paper inside each book.
This is a great challenge for this season -- stop by CHIT CHAT CHALLENGE this weekend -- I am sure you will have a blast.
Oh....and guess what I am doing today. Getting the house ready for all the family that will start to arrive this weekend. I usually do not put the Christmas tree up this early but I thought WHY NOT? The tree, the decorations, the smells all make me so happy. Here is a pic of what my guest will see as soon as they enter my home. I am giddy with excitement and can not wait to see all of the FAM!!!
