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....New Challenge

Today's canvas is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next week. The theme for this challenge is bubbles and I had lots of fun creating this canvas. As always you have to choice of going LOC..just please check the rules out on the LOC blog.
We are so lucky this week to have been sponsored by the fabulous team over at Ching Chou Kuik. I just adore her work and the range of images that are available are just luscious. I found it so hard to choose which one to work with. I chose this images as the theme was bubbles, I thought that an under the sea image would be perfect.
For the canvas, I began by painting the background. I painted the canvas with my H2Os and then stencilled on the bubbles using white acrylic. I coloured the image with my promarkers, cut it out and added it to the canvas. I finally added some jewels. I hope that you will pop over and take a look at all the wonderful images that are available over at Ching Chou Kuik Digital Stamps.
What a day new bed with an orthopaedic mattress is now in place. But what an ordeal it was. Fair dos to the builder..he had to saw it in half to get the base through the winding corridors of the cottage. The ceiling is so low at the bedroom end of the cottage the base just wouldn't get through. And of course he has to deal with cat opinions ...Gannie had an awful lot to say...coming into the parlour telling me that somebody was fiddling on the stairs.He has also sat on the studio roof watching every move the builder made. They all seem to hate change of any kind and I have to put up with a group of sulking cats every time I do I have the feeling I shall be in the dog house this I'm aiming now to sort the bedroom out and then get the kitchen ready for the new carpet going down. A couple of weeks and I won't know At the moment all the cats are lay stretched out on the studio roof. I think that they are just making the most of the fact that it isn't raining.

Well the coffee is calling and I've got some work to finish. I've managed to make the toilet roll book and I'll be sharing it tomorrow.It was great fun and you may well find me making a group of So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
