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......New Challenge

Todays makes are design team makes for the fabulous team over at A Step in the Dark. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next month. The theme is Anything Goes as long as it is a dark side project. For more information just pop over to the facebook page. The image I chose to work with is called kitty cool cat and is from the very talented team over at SLS Lines. This is another cat design which will work with all my other cat designs from their range. I just love the fact that they have so much attitude.

We are lucky enough to have 2 sponsors this being SLS Lines and the other is Ikes Art. For my Ikes Art design, I chose to work with this fabulous image called The Wind Fairy. For this design, I coloured the fairy with my promarkers and painted the background canvas with my acrylic paints.

I also added glitter to the piece of her dress that is blowing in the wind. I love the way that it looks as if the wind is blowing and has caught her dress. She is lucky that she is not here in the mountains today..the chances are that there wouldn't be a lot of her dress left with the way the winds are raging I love design that can make you feel what is going on.

I do hope that you will pop over to the facebook page and take a look. We have had some amazing creations over there, that show the wonderful talents of fellow crafters.Some of the makes have just taken my breath away.

Well I'm off to drink some more of my coffee. I've just fed the kittens again and now hopefully they will be asleep for an hour. I can live in At the moment they are all on the blanket that is covering my legs. There still seems to be a bit of rough and tumble going on...but it does seem to be slowing down. I will be back again in a minute with my final design team make of the see you soon.
