So what would be more wonderful, than spending time 
creating a little Christmas joy !! 

This ornament is created from a wooden Christmas ball,
given to me from my very dear friend Lynne , together with the 
leaf and pom,pom`s , too. Thank you my lovely friend.

I first painted it all white, then used a lot of gesso to form the snow feeling,
and on the leaf I also added : Crust velvet white flock, showing up 
almost like soft snow. The acorns are filled with two pom,pom`s ,and around them I added
more of them, with a lot of Diamond Dust.

I made the flower, and added two beautiful real crystals ,
from where it can hang. 

Something else, a sneak peak of a card, where I used 
beautiful old embroidered fabric, another handmade rose, and even
some brown packaging material, from a packet from USA. 
You know I like to mix  fabric and papers.

And last, natures beauty!!
what could be more gorgeous, than these, almost ,skeleton leaves,
I found on one of my walks, and brought home !!

I hope you all are finding time to cozy up with ,whatever
makes you happy to create, and to enjoy quiet and inspirational
hours !!

Hugs and love

For ei nydelig julekule du har laget Dorthe. Ja det går veldig fort frem mot jul. Nesten litt for fort etter min mening.
Ønsker deg fine dager

Using nature and mixing fabric with paper are some of my favorite ways to create also. And thank you for sharing the peek at your card. Your creations are beautiful and as always, inspiring!
