Ribbon Trees at Yuletide

I collect the bits and pieces of leftover ribbon throughout the year(s) and sew them into ribbon trees. 

Forgive my fuzzy photo of this pink tree, but it's the only one I had of it, and it was one of my faves.

 Big trees, fancy trees, small trees, simple trees, disco times!

Winter Solstice and Yule Blessings to all my Pagan friends on this day!

Enjoy preparing for your Christmas or which ever Holiday traditions makes you happiest!

Stay safe and wishing you good health over the holidays.

Paisley Angel

I don't know what it is about the paisley design, but I just love it (obviously) Its teardrop shape that is ornamented with flowers and symbols all around it and throughout. They were a favorite of mine to doodle during class, a secret creative outlet that fully took over during math class, lol.

I enjoyed myself recently by playing with a paisley stencil and went to work adorning it. With the holidays everywhere, my paisley looked like a wing, a beautiful angel wing adorned with jewels and colours, flowers and symbols of life and love.

I'm into wings also, mainly birds but I don't discriminate, if an angel wants to come and own these wings, I can be open to that.

So here they are, some angel wings framed in a shadowbox.

The supplies are mostly Stampin' Up! and I used colours of Baja Breeze blue, Pool Party blue, Real Razzleberry purple, Bravo Burgundy, and Close to Cocoa soft brown, which I find to have a pink undertone.

The popped up flowers alternate between Real Razzleberry and Bravo Burgundy ones. I coloured the rhinestones to match and alternated them too.

This picture shows all the little paisleys in the background on the Close to Cocoa designer series paper. Ack! I love this paper!

Here the flowers alternate between Baja Breeze and Pool Party.

Her dress and halo are made of Brushed Gold cardstock. I added a decor element at the bottom.

♥ It was my "secret Santa" gift to a friend. ♥

Wishing you sweet paisley dreams...
