Late Saturday afternoon I walked out into the back
yard and saw the sun shining on the top of this tree. It
was cloudy, and I just thought the tree looked beautiful being
frame by the sunbeam.
This tree is across the street from our house.
When I went to Hollo's last week I found 12x12 sheets of
designer paper that had printed postage stamps with vintage
Santa on them. I thought these would be great to make clip art
for all the upcoming Christmas swaps I'll be doing.
I sandwiched fuzzy fibers in between the printed image, and
a piece of vanilla cardstock with the jumbo paper clip in the center.
This one I added a metal tag that has the word believe on it.
This one I added a sprig of greenery, and a red button.
I also made some fall clips using silk, and metal leaves.
So the silk leaves would have some dimension I made a pleat
in the bottom and glued it with my hot gun tool.
The back was kept clean and finished by adding a button.
