Just a quick post to start the 2015 crafting season.
taken some time off during the holidays, partly because I went home
where I don't have any crafting stuff, and partly because I started
what I should be doing anyway - learning.
I sorted my unterlagen and prepared (almost) everything I
need to know for my exam. And with 6 weeks to go, I almost feel like time is
a wonderful students' life...
as I'm not a morning person when it comes to learning (i.e.
afternoon, evening & night is my most productive learning time),
I managed to do this little blue bird somewhere between waking up
and cooking lunch.
I used the sketch from sweet sketch wednesday for the arrangement,
and the colour combo from C.R.A.F.T. challenge.
took some patterned paper for the background, and thought to use a
white ribbon for the horizontal stripe. But,
I glued the background paper to the card too soon, so I took a blue
leftover paper instead. To make it sparkle, I used a silver sticker and two wooden snowflakes with glitter.
I can imagine the little bird is cold with the low temperatures outside, but at least I hope somebody wrapped some candy on the tree :) It's pretty funny to watch the birds swing on those apples, and a wonderful idea I saw in the city center lately.
