11th Night of Solstice

11th Night: And in the long winter's night, her cloak became wings and she soared.

10th Night of Solstice

10th Night: The spiral path leads to the moon garden, the home of joy.

Rubbermoon: Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice is upon us again!  For this card, I used Rubbermoon stamp Winter Solstice (jc1033).
I busted out the Art Spinner to create a floaty space background.  A toss of glitter across wet paint was a fine addition.
I stamped Winter Solstice girl using Staz On black ink and colored her in with Caran d'Ache Watercolor Crayons.
 I cut out the funky lettering from a old issue of Alaska magazine.  My letter "C" is actually an altere "G".  Each letter was then boxed off with white pen.
Let the celebration of light begin!  Happy Solstice!

6th Day of Solstice

6th Day: Cedar, spruce, the salt of the sea. I turn my face to the light of the sky, a hint of snow.

SPA: Winter

Sunday Postcard Art:  Winter

Last Christmas night, Bruce and I boarded a ferry for Haines, Alaska.  We drove across the border and north to Dawson in the Yukon Territory.  When we arrived, it was -51.  There were few people out and about, but red foxes running all over the place.  Here is one of them - since Photoshopped.

Life Glitter - Rubbermoon * Imagine Crafts Cross Promotion

Life Glitter - Rubbermoon * Imagine Crafts Cross Pomotion

Here is the gathering of goods, the step in the creative process in which all possible art supplies get stacked on the top of my desk for possible use.  In this case, Kae Pea's New Moon stamp paired with a VersaMark Marker and two bottles of Shimmer Spritz by Tsukineko.

Additionally, Tsukineko Fireworks! and Staz On ink rounded out my pile, along with bits and pieces of pretty paper, ribbon, and other ephemera.

Fireworks! on the page, emboss dried before stamping and embossing Kae Pea's Wings.

Streak directly to paper Staz On Ink, Blue Hawaii.  I must add that these midi ink pads are amazing! :)

Finally - assemblage.  Layer pretty papers, wings to the moon, "Life glitter" circles, and dusting of glitter here and there.  This is my Life Glitter.
