I’ll Have a Blue Christmas

Merry Christmas making .  Making it midnight blue. turquoise and tan.  I had forgotten how much I loved my midnight blue crayons as a kid.  It was always the first one in the pack I picked up.  It’s mysterious, dark and deep like the winter season, going inward, reflecting, feeling the love of friends and wanting to share it outward.

IMG_1010I started with this sheet of free painted paper

IMG_1009Stamped all over with the whorl stamp from Stamper’s Anonymous, in midnight blue.

IMG_1013Added washi tape, stick on letters and punched out paper stars.

IMG_1015Whimsy and magic

IMG_1016Gluten free cookies, or was that waffles? and Almond Milk.

IMG_1019Some help from above, the heavenly kind.

IMG_1020I believe, do you?

    Lovely free light and playful – feel it all coming from you. Prussian blue is Samy’s favorite color for the same reasons! xoxo

    I still use crayons in my artwork, Corrine! I agree that Midnight Blue is a mysterious color! And, yes, I believe! I do believe! Love all your cards here and believe they will carry not only tiding of great joy, but a bit of mystery, too!
