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.

A Step in the Dark....Butterflies and Tangle

Hello I am with my first blog of the day. This is my design team make for the fabulous design team for A Step in the Dark. This is a facebook challenge with a theme of Anything Goes as long as it is a dark side creation. The Challenge runs for a month and please consider joining in. I just love being part of this team because I get to experiment with different looks. The rest of the team have created some fabulous makes and are a great source of inspiration.

We are lucky enough to be sponsored for this month by the wonderful team over at Stitchy Bears Digi Outlet. Everytime I go to have a look around their store, I'm lost. There are just so many fabulous designs..I just don't know where to start.

The image that I have decided to work with for this month is called Butterfly profile. It just called to me to be a perfect design to that's what I did. As most of you know, I adore the art of zentangle and have to say that Sparkle says that it's the only time I'm really I just find it so relaxing.I decided to use one of my favourite sayings...Never settle for anything less than butterflies. I have coloured the butterflies with my glaze pens..mainly so that they would stand out beside all the tangles. I'm thinking to myself that I may put this into a frame and put it in the bathroom. I'm quickly running out of wallspace in the

Well the coffee is calling and I'll be back shortly with another design team make. I hope you will pop over to the A Step in the Dark facebook page and join in the fun. So until later...take care and happy crafting.
