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...presenting Halloween

Todays make is a design team make for the fantastic team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and the theme for this week is Halloween.
 We are so lucky this week to be sponsored by the wonderful team over at Delicious Doodles. As most of you will know by now, I just love the images from this store. I have done a few before and there are at least 2 more in the pipeline. If you get the chance, please pop over and take a look. There are just so many that I would love to work with.

For my canvas, I began by colouring this image. It is called Morgan Le Fay. I coloured her using my promarkers. I know I have a bit of a passion for strange coloured hair but actually my hair is green at the moment. I decided that I wanted her to look as if she was in a I set out to create one. I used paper mache and created the walls onto a canvas. I also created a bird skull to match in with the image. When my paper mache was dry, I painted it with my acrylics and added flowersoft to look like lichens and moss. I also added some flowers and small leaves. I then added my image to the middle.
I have been so busy the last few days..all of a sudden I realised that it was going to be the end of the month and I needed to upload a lot of work in readiness for new challenges beginning. This weekend, I need to finish my new house's been sitting on the couch all week waving at me saying finish

All the cats are well and the kittens are growing day by day. I will try and get the photos up this weekend. I am so lucky that I get to share in their growing up. They make me smile every day with their antics. Little Nosey is the trouble maker and has to be at the front if anything is going

Well the coffee is calling and I have a project that I need to finish for tonight. So I shall be back later..BT willing of course. It has to have been the worst week ever for signal. The laughable thing is that it was quicker and more reliable when we had the old dial up connection. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
