Finally, finally getting to post something to this poor neglected blog of mine! I've been working on a few things that I'll be able to share sometime in the future (some soon, some much later), and just haven't had that precious "extra" time - you know the kind I mean.
Anyway, I'm happy that I got to play along with Louise's latest Tag Tuesday Challenge - Winter. I used the scene outside my window as my inspiration: the colors (blue sky, pine needle green, tree trunk brown, a snowy white flurry or two, a sunny twinkle to the landscape), the textures (rough, wrinkled, dried), the sounds (birdsong at my feeder), and of course, the little feathered friend. I used lots of scraps left over from other projects, too. The corrugated cardboard was painted white a week ago - I added some Patina Glimmer Mist for sky. The twinkly, crinkly crepe was my backdrop of flurries, along with a few vellum-embossed white flakes. Vintage music, of course, is my paper version of birdsong. The birdie is a little something I had lined up for two Tag Tuesday challenges ago, but alas, never got to; he's from a Pottery Barn paper bag, and he was supposed to star in the challenge of using Christmas scraps. I think he's happy here. ;) Stamps are from Artistic Outpost, inks from Ranger.
