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...Spiders in my Fur

Todays creation is a design team for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges.

We are so lucky for this weeks challenge to be sponsored by the fantastic team at Sami Stamps.

The theme for this weeks challenge is Insects and Creepy Crawlies. I so enjoyed making this canvas. My cat Raven is the inspiration for my canvas. She is a very nosey cat and loves nothing better than getting into places where there are cobwebs and comes back looking as if she has been used as a feather One of her favourite areas is the loft..and always comes down covered in cobweb.

For my canvas I began by painting the canvas black and then added a torn piece of paper that was covered with spiders. I then added the actual image which I had coloured with my promarkers. The background of the image I painted with my H2O's. I coloured some braid and added it to the corners into the shape of a web. I finally added a couple of spider charms and added the words. This is now going to live in my bathroom as a reminder that we can all have bad hair

I hope that you will pop over to the blog and take a look at all the other projects that have been created by the other members of the design team..they are fabulous. And why not join in the fun as well.

Well the coffee is calling and I'll be back later with another design team make. So until then..take care and happy crafting.
