As I am typing this post the snow is falling - again. I awoke this morning to icy sidewalks and side roads and the freezing rain "spritzled" off and on during the day. It was in the 30's F over the weekend, however, Sat. nite we lost power for over 1 1/2 hrs (some were w/o power even longer) for no obvious reason. The news finally reported old transformer systems to be the reason. Nothing more to say on that subject.
This is a journal page I completed this weekend and am linking to Bleubeard and Elizabeth and friends at T Stands for Tuesday and Conny's Mix It Monthly challenge for the theme this month of "play with fabric".
My journal page was covered with another of my gelli print deli papers. I made paper templates for the teapot, lid, mug, dish and coffee. Once I chose my fabrics I backed them with a fusible interfacing for stability before tracing the patterns and cutting them out. After they were glued to the page along with the typed sentiment I outlined everything with a charcoal pencil and smudged a bit.
I also made a trio of cards for the Simon Monday Challenge Blog. This week the theme is "red and pink". I do love that combo but am done with Valentines so I came up with something else to fit.
I wish I could have gotten better pics but considering the weather...You can click on the image for a better view. The colors are much more vibrant in person.
I am also linking to Inspiration Avenue for the theme of "show and tell" this week.
Again, weather depending, my son and I have two appointments tomorrow AM so I will be around to visit in the afternoon. Hope you are safe and warm where you are. I did hear that as of this time Australia is the warmest spot right now. I can learn the 'Aussie' life pretty quickly :)
