OLW119 - Silver and Blue
This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by Heather and it's a colour challenge - Silver and Blue. How appropriate at this time of year!
I played around for a while before settling on this pretty Memory Box snowflake wreath. I embossed it (and the Hero Arts sentiment) in silver and then overstamped with two different sized dots - the larger in Cool Caribbean and the darker in Island Indigo.
I hope you'll play along - it's always so fun to see how everyone interprets the challenge slightly differently!
On another note, Tuesday was a 'strike' day. Our teachers staged a one day walk out to protest a new law that will limit their ability to negotiate and strike, as well as limiting salaries and radically changing sick day policy, among other things. I had two of Kate's friends over for most of the day, as their parents both work.
My friend Kelly Griglione (SOOOOO creative and inspirational - go check her out!) recently posted a tutorial about how to make some simple folded Christmas ornaments, so I quickly reviewed it and got out all the stuff for the girls to make their own. We SUPERSIZED them and used neon paper, adding glitter at the end (should be done earlier in the process, by the way, but we didn't know if we would have time for it to dry!). Here's some photos of the girls working away and the finished products:
