Magical Monday: Snowy Brook Bauble


WHEW! Back to a normal week, hooray! Last week was quite the marathon – a fun one, but I’m really glad to have the relative ease of a video with no chattering in it. (A nice break for me!) So today I bring you a Magical Monday video with an ornament I bought a few months ago and just hadn’t colored up yet. I knew it was going to be set into a tree, and just hadn’t worked out how to do it – but once I figured it out, I had to make a video for you! Enjoy it below, or watch it in HD on YouTube by clicking HERE.

It’s been a little crazy how little patterned paper I use nowadays – eeep! I spent a good bit of the weekend making cards from the one 6×6 pad I have for Christmas – and I had bought several of them, so I’ve been going mad trying to use em up! Last year I had been so proud of myself, using up all the holiday paper so I could get new stuff…and I want to do the same again this year! A couple of them are on Instagram.

My silver uniball pen is new – and they also have one in GOLD! Woohoo. Linked you to the white, gold, and silver in the description. Just in case. *smile*


Tomorrow’s the last day to catch up on commenting on my 12 Tags series – I’ll be announcing winners on Thursday! Some of the tags in this photo are the bonus ones that I’m going to give away to my Patrons too.

  29. Simply stunning. I would never even attempt to colour in an image like this, but you make it seem so easy….

  30. I would love to be one of the lucky recipients on your Christmas card list every year…boy this ornament was truly beautiful! Thanks for getting my Monday off with an inspiring post.

  31. I used to sit here and think “oh, wait, don’t do that” when you would lay down heavy colors or do something that at the time didn’t make much sense, only to be absolutely amazed at the results. Now I just sit back and anxiously await the magic that unfolds as you color. (Magical Mondays is a very appropriate name!)

  32. The silver ornament took my breath away. It looks like it could be lifted right off what it is lying on.

  33. Do you send these cards to someone special. I hope they are saved and cherished!

  34. Wonderful ideas…been looking forward each day..Thanks and peaceful Christmas.
