 Hello everyone,

At to end of the Alphabet now with Christmas Crafts All Year Round ..

We are down the the nitty gritty with X,Y, and Z ..have mercy..

I went with 'Y'...because I like to make logs, trees, branches etc with masking tape...

So this is going to be a Yule log!!..tis' true, it really is..

And not very hard to do at all...just scrunch masking tape onto a piece of card..

find your paints and fingers crossed they are not all dried out..

Jar of water and paint brush..

Squirt some paint onto baking paper for mixing or glass mat or pallet, whatever..

And start with Ochre, lots of water..

Then the reds....

Then the light and dark browns..with a touch of black..

While that's drying get your pine needle branches all ready..

And make a total mess using horrible pearl paint which is older than Methuselah..

So by now my log was dry and I had glued it down and added those branches sand snowflakes..
and snow..

I needed a bird...with a red breast..

There's my log..with that yucky snow, why oh why..

I added some berries on one of the other branches that I had added...

And the birdie...

I think I fixed the snow by adding glue onto that pearl stuff and sprinkled glitter onto it..

Looks better eh!

And added my Peace on Earth die cut sentiment..
Done..My Yule log, but not in the fire yet..

So there we go, post number 2..
Have a little scroll down to see my gnome, that would great, he is too cute..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

Love how you created your yule log Chrissy- it looks so realistic, great save on the snow, looks so much better with the glitter. The robin, branches and berries are gorgeous.xx
