Let it snow....are you serious??

You have to smile at the complications of a design team spread across the globe when it comes to a seasonal challenge....witness the latest (number 197!!) excitement at Opus Gluei where the theme is snow.  SNOW?  Its a warm 34C here in Australia today, well, in my little part of it, and I don't think its ever snowed in my street.  Now THAT would be an example of climate change, but I'm not advocating for it........

So channeling my inner winter, I attempted a scattering of snowflakes, and then I hung them from a bar and they move in the wind.  Before anyone complains about a distinct lack of white, let me hasten to explain I was thinking snow in the evening....glistening against the night sky.  What would I know? I've never seen it.
I embossed a snowflake stamp and added a glittery centre, then glued them to grey gauze ribbon.  They're double-sided, but you can only see that if I upload a you'll have to take my word for it.

  1. For someone who has never seen snow before, you have captured it perfectly! Lovely idea to have them hanging so they move in the breeze and flutter like real snowflakes.


love to know what you think.......
