Thanks to my many friends in the internet & everyday world who inspire and support my creativity. Click the links to Sky Watch Friday, my favorite day of the week when 100s of bloggers from all over the world share a peek into what the sky is doing at their place this week.

It has been a bit overcast and blustery around here for the last few weeks with the sky under cover of thick blankets of clouds. But a flurry of activity over on the Tattered Angels web site with their new format, new colours and so much more to be seen.

"You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain to view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. "
Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmastime. “ Laura Ingalls Wilder
Tattered Angels is celebrating with a remodel on their web site complete with a give away.

Glimmer & Glow

For December Tattered Angels is celebrating all things glass, glimmer, glaze, glam, they all work together so well.
Starting with a quick one a little card using Kutalicious glass bobbles for a Christmas canvas celebrating the beautiful blue and glowing tones of the beach.
Using parts of an acrylic glass album from another great Australian supplier Bella Fynmark I made this little suncatcher. Layers of glimmer glam, glimmer mist, glaze and stamping to create a warm glowing heart.
Earlier this year I picked up this multi photo clock with a plan to change the decorations with the seasons. Here in Australia we are heading into summer which prompted by word for the season – glow.
The Christmas bulbs were created by using the glisten like glass technique on glossy photo paper and came up a treat.  Tattered Angels is hosting a party on their new web site complete with give aways and prizes.

Bit like Sky Watching,  in our busy hurry scurry lives it is easy to overlook all the beautiful things that are going on around us. Check the link to see what hundreds of bloggers from all over the world have found in their patch of the sky this week.  And much thanks to our hosts of Sky Watch Friday and Dot for starting the sky watch party.
