Prayer for Peace


I have had these antique chandelier Crystals for several years.  In a world that is filled with war and violence I decided to create a Christmas ornament that would be a visual reminder of my prayer for this Christmas.


I started with Sandra Evertsons Dresden wings and Relics and artifact Milagros.  Tim Holtz bottle brush wreath cut in half and reformed and peace from Tim Holtz sizzix handwritten holidays.


I covered the wings with glossy accents and then sprinkled them with Diamond Dust and let the wings dry.


I then covered the praying angle with Pebeo glitter medium and let it dry.


I assembled the ornament by using E6000 to attach wings, praying child, crystal, peace word and wreath .   After they dried I hung it on the tree.

Here is how it looks on the tree with and without lights.

I hope that the peace of Christmas will invade your life this year.


Too all the Red Head Girls in my life…


Too all the Red Head Girls in my life...

I have been practicing my drawing skills. I have been focusing on faces of both women and men.

This is one of my favorite pictures so far. I know it isn’t perfect. Her eyes are not symmetrical nor are they the same size but there is something I find intriguing about this picture.

According to Marion Roach “All the action adventure girls have red hair,” he said. “Whenever it is an independent girl, not a sidekick person, when she has her own mind or does as good as the guys, she has red hair.”

Maybe that is why I like the picture so much. Lets hear it for the Red Heads!
