Winter Wonders

I've been putting the finishing touches to some more samples for my "Winter Solstice" workshop at Arts Alive this coming weekend.

I'm thoroughly looking forward to having a wonderful time with a total of 10 ladies....

...who will be joining me to make somethings like these.


Winter Birch brooches....

...using stencils and Markal Paint Stiks from Colourcraft.






...and some delightful bare winter tree stitched pieces...




...using the most beautiful wooden block from Colouricious!

(Only one of a number actually!)




I've also made a couple of folded/wrapped books...



...one being an "amulet" to protect the home...

...using Viking runes...





...and another with part of a winter poem "Lux Aeterna" by Lassi Nummi

(Thanks to Donald Adamson for the poem in full and to Alison Burns for the shortened version. which my choir have sung on many occasions!)




I have other plans for part of this text too...

...if I can fit it in tomorrow! :-o

WoW!! I love it all! The tree stamp is perfect, especially for this time of the year. I'm envious of those who get to attend your classes. *smile*
