Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Left of Center...and The East Wind

 Todays creation is a design teammake for the fabulous Left of Center Challenge blog. It has been sponsored by the amazing East Wind. I decided to make this canvas featuring this (what I think) twenties looking design. I had such fun creating thisI began with some canvas paper and painted it in shades from blue to green using my H2o's. I then coloured the digi using my promarkers and then added the picture to the canvas.I then took a packet of chipboard flowers which it seems I have had forever and decided to cut them up to reflect the leaf shape on the actual digi. I then added the saying. The new challenge which begins todays has the theme use ribbon/fibre/twine. Why not pop over and join in the fun

Digi shop... east wind

I have popped the link to the etsy shop of the East Wind, in case you wanted to take a look at the fabulous goodies over there.

I hope that you will think of joining in the fun over at the Left of Center Challenge. The other team members are so talented and a wonderful source of inspiration. In my crafting I have been so lucky to meet such a great group of people, who have supported me in the hard times.Who knew where I was going when I started this it still continues.

It is just a short blog this morning but will be back later, bringing you my latest make for the fabulous Jiggery until then I'm off for a coffee or three, as social services are coming this afternoon. Wish me luck. I'll let you know how it all went later. Until then..take care and happy crafting
