BRRRR! My windowpanes are certainly frosted this morning. How I'd much rather crawl back into bed or sip a big cup of tea next to the wood stove than to have to head out into my car!
So I have a chilly journal page for you today. I am linking this page to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is Winter Wonderland. Chrissie, our hostess, picked an appropriate topic for sure!
So I had this 12x12 piece of paper with icicles on it which I used as my background. I then tore up this red striped paper and made an abstract window frame. This paper reminds me of a scarf which is one I reason I used it.
Then I added white snowflakes (stenciled with paint), some tape, a fabric snowflake, a stamped image and a plastic snowflake to finish it off.
And since it is a chilly morning, the kind for a thick hand knitted sweater, thought I'd also show you some bits of the Christmas stocking I am knitting.
I love knitting Christmas stockings with scraps of yarn and designing my own patterns as I go. Last year I made 3, and I am going to finish this one off soon. I am not making them for anyone in particular, just knitting for the love of knitting.
Lots of bright colors, and this one has a lot of pink in it. Its a great exercise in playing not only with color combinations but also how those colors work with different patterns.
Here's 2 of the 3 I made last year. We used 2 of them during Christmas 2014. The middle red and white one I also knitted several years ago. I made the red and blue one on the right for my dog. What a lucky pup she is to have a hand made stocking!
And finally since is is Tuesday, I have a digital piece I made for Elizabeth's weekly post T Stands for Tuesday.
Have a great day!
