New Year Resolutions

Ok I said the one before this was my last post of the year...yet today inspiration struck and I obliged. And yes I decided it was worth sharing with you as well!
In my hands the Relics and Artifacts have a way of speaking to me and they connect with each other so well, like pieces in a puzzle!
I started with the center head, it represents me then to my left is my son  with his unruly hair to my right my younger daughter. The eyes represent how we look at the future together. The cross represents my faith and my commitment to make it stronger next year.  The dove represents the Holy Spirit and how I wish it guides us through next year.  I hope the Angels help me guide my family through and thus there's an Angels wing!
I painted with heavy white gesso and then used white crackle paste to represent purity.
I also drilled a hole on the wood to thread  the Lumies, another pure white light.
There's much to look forward to in the future.  There's a lot to do in the now. It's been an exciting year and I look forward to the new one with hopeful eyes! 

Thanks as always for stopping by! Happy New Year everyone!
PS: look me up on Snapguide to learn how to make it!

From our house to yours Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone!!! This will be my last post of the year.  I'm inspired by Riika Kovasin's sketch for Prima' December BAP
I wNted to make it into a Giant Christmas card of sorts with all my family in it!
A clean and elegant piece to embrace all that is good in my life
Anchored together by an Angel full of splendor and appropriately framed by Prima's antique white wood frame (#549893)

Here are the details 

My everything, my kids

And all of us together 
Here's Riikas sketch

May the New Year bring you joy, adventure, health, creativity and tons of joyful moments!

Merry Christmas

It's a beautiful December here on the island!!! I hope you are all doing well! Today I'm sharing with you my entry for the December PPP challenge at Prima
If you know me you know I always build a house for Christmas and this year it's no exception!
Using Frank Garcias Victorian Christmas 
Here's my take on the PPP 

And of course you are invited to visit a few rooms! Come on in!
Santa is helping to decorate my tree
Painted with Bloom Sprays in gold and green
The children are excited and waiting for what's to come. Are you loving the Relics and Artifacts Dresdens? Me too!!
The classic nutcracker is standing watch to all the presents underneath the tree...
The ground floor holds the entrance with the sleigh and the car. It was such joy to fussy cut this glorious paper collection!
The floors are real wood and the exterior walls are music to my ears!!!
I hope you have a magical holiday season! Thanks for visiting
