I know its a few days into Advent but I can show you this project today.
It was made for the first Challenge in December over at Gingersnap Creations.
Thankyou all for inviting me to be a Visiting Artist again this month.
The theme for this week is 'Starry Nights'. GS 130
This started life as a mirror, bought from Ikea. Out came the acrylic tester paint pots for the background, then I had fun smudging on silver paint.
The Advent days clock is from Tando as are the trees and Santa's sledge .
It took some working out to get the right size numbers for the dial, this is where the old computer came in useful. All the colouring was done with acrylics.
As you can tell the glitter was liberally sprinkled and I added some stars to guide the Sleigh.
Covering the mirror in the centre is a craft paper, printed with one of my favourite Christmas poems by Clement Clarke Moore, it goes like this,-
Twas the night before Christmas,
When all through the house.
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a mouse.
This is now hanging in my kitchen, with the pointer moved every morning bringing the 25th ever closer.
Just has a message from Zoechaos about a Winter Festivals challenge over at Tando Creative so I am posting my callender here as well.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
