I have a design today using Chocolate Baroque's new gorgeous Serenity A5 set.
The background is Teal & Turquoise Dylusions ink. I stencilled a little over top with TCW Pointy Circles and stamped in the background with a beautiful feather image from Peacock Parade. I embossed with gold UTEE around the edge of the background.
I embossed the Buddha from Serenity with gold directly over the background. I stamped a second Buddha image with Cobalt Archival ink and embossed a third image with gold powder on separate cardstock. Next I decoupaged the cobalt Buddha and the gold Lotus chair and layered over the main image. I embossed the smaller feather images also from Peacock Parade with gold and decoupaged as shown. All the images were coloured with Prisma and Inktense pencils.
I'm including a few photos taken after the 48 hour ice storm that hit here the weekend before Christmas. We are thankful that our electricity was only off for one day as many families went much longer in freezing weather. Some waited over a week for hydro lines to be repaired. Sadly there is extensive damage to trees in the Region. We won't know the extend of damage to our shrubs until the Spring when the snow melts. Our trees are younger and seemed to survive well. Nature is beautiful and sometimes cruel.
|Taken on the third day, still very dark. The ground is snow & ice covered, the shrubs and trees are ice covered, that's not snow!|
|Candied Crab Apples covered in ice.|

I would like to thank everyone for all your visits and kind words at my blog during the last year, I appreciate them very much. I'm looking forward to the inspiration I gain from visits to your blogs in 2014!
