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.....Owls for Henry

Todays creation above is made for the wonderful design team over at the Left of Center Creative Challenges.
We are lucky enough this week to have two sponsors..The Enchanted Design Studio, featuring the wonderful art work of Concetta Kilmer. And Karleigh Sue Digi Stamps. The theme for this week is Tic Tac's really simple..please pop over to the blog for more details.

My first creation features the Spring Fling Owls...which of course I had to do in memory of Henry. And to continue with the theme..they had to be The fine line digi is just one of the beautiful artworks over at The Enchanted Design Studio. I decided to do a little canvas which can go on the wall. I first coloured the whole canvas using white and blue acrylics and let it dry. I then added leaves to either side using my yellow and green acrylics. The actual owls, I coloured with my promarkers and then cut out. I glued them to the canvas using some Pinflair glue gel.

For my second creation, I decided to make a card using the image Raven from the Karleigh Sue range. I had so much fun colouring her and deciding on her clothes.

She made me think of my punk Though I have to admit that I never wore short skirts.I did have a top covered with skulls and my skirts always came to the ground.Thinking about style hasn't changed that hair is green and my skirts still come to the For the card...I coloured Raven with my promarkers and then cut her out and mounted the image onto some holographic silver board. I edged this with some silvered ribbon.I created the border with a feather, some flowers and a black and white ribbon.The chances are that in my punk days, everything that I've added to my border here would have been added to my outfit.

Well the coffee is calling and the sun is shining here in the mountains. I have a pile of work to get on with. I hope that you will pop over to the Left of Center Challenge Blog and take a look at all the beautiful creations that the other members of the design team have created. And why not join in the fun. I will be back later with another until then..take care and happy crafting.
