Where the heART is..challenge #4

Hello Everyone...

I had a very strange and rather pleasing experience today..
Where I live we have a very long main road lined with palm trees and there are a lot of pigeons living in I was driving along from one client to the next and had a feeling I was not alone..looked to my right, and there, flying along side me was this beautiful white pigeon..and he stayed there for a whole block, through the traffic lights[  which were green by the way] and on up the road for about 200 strange, never had that happen before..then he just flew off to his right and disappeared...left me feeling really strange and wanting to shout to anyone who would listen "did you see that"...but the road is quite fast and no one probably noticed, but I had that feeling most of the day, like I had a secret or something..really nice.

Anyway...why are we here today...

Time for a new challenge #4 at Where the heART is  and thank you all who joined us last time another fabulous turnout and lovely big number of gorgeousness for me to surf through.

This time round we want to see your CHRISTMAS COLOURS and I guess that could mean what your Christmas colours are..mine of course are the red/green/white and splash of gold..and another canvas with the lovely image from our sponsor...That Craft Place  .

Red/Green/White and gold is there...tiny little gold stars...heaps of them...

This little sweetie is called Big Present  ...coloured with Copic Ciaos, Reno Markers and Faber Castell pencils...

The background was textured with modelling paste...die cut pine branches..snowflakes and green Gelatos...

A close up of the pretty girl all fussy cut out and with her fluffy trims..and if you look real close you may see one or two of the 300 gold stars..

Dimension with the baby pinecones and red/white pom poms, and the green and red ribbons..I did try to stop, really I did, but just kept adding stuff..

Added more snowflakes cause I bought a new punch and lots of texture paste to the pine cones..

Had a lot of fun with this hope you can come and join in with us at Where the heART is  You can do cards or altered objects, mixed media..all sorts, just show " Christmas Colours.."

Thanks so much for stopping by, and keep an eye out for those pigeons...going to pop this on  schedule as I'm on the school run this arvo and out for tea tonight..

See you tomorrow..

Lovely canvas Chrissy, the colours and texture are gorgeous, love those tiny gold stars glinting amongst the foliage and snowflakes, and those baby pinecones and berries. As always your pretty focal image is perfectly coloured.
Your ' pigeon experience' is fascinating, such unusual behaviour!

I think maybe that pigeon was your own personal angel - just flying along to make sure you got through the traffic safely! Awesome!

I have been going nuts trying to find those miniature pine cones. It's like they up and all went on vacation and left the really big and fat ones here. Not that the really big and fat ones aren't special and hold their own place in my heart, but ever try to squeeze one of them into an envelope? It's a ridiculous and effortless venture, let me tell ya.
Anywho, thanks for letting me rant and for also blowing my creative mind with your BEAUTIFUL card and pine cones and YES, it is the most wonderful time of the year!!
Big hugs to you,
Lisa x

Love your story about the white pigeon - I know exactly what you mean about having that secret magical experience all to yourself.

And your festive canvas is just fabulous! Love the vivid green and red, and the earthiness of those wonderful natural pine cones is great amongst the bright colours. The white snowflakes add just the right highlights, echoing her lovely furry trim!
