Snow on snow on snow...



Yesterday the schools were closed due to snow and sleet and freezing rain and this morning there is a two-hour delay. I am getting in some quick photography and a blog entry before I have to make lunches!
Here are two small snow pieces: the one below I did earlier in January, a 5"x5" "journal" piece, purely for fun and exploration. I used some recycled wrapping that came in a shoe box and some cut paper snowflakes. The other (right) is 2"x4" as per a challenge on a mixed media website (I think it was themethursday.wordpress.com). I enjoyed going through my stash of white snow-like material and layering it on. The words are from a poem by Christina Rosetti that has been made into a Christmas Carol: "In the bleak midwinter..." Anyone tired of winter yet? Still a long way to go until spring...Promise to have my goals and maybe a word for 2009 soon...
