Gently Falling Snow

The snow has been drifting softly down all day long, bringing a peaceful, quiet feeling., so I decide to create (finally) my Christmas tag for a little exchange with my creative daughters and daughter-in-law.  
The theme is music, and ever since I found out, the Christmas song “The Snow Lay on the Ground” has been playing itself inside my head.  Lovely, it’s one of my favorites.  Here is a sneak preview even though my tag is not quite finished.  I loved making it and want to share it on this beautiful 001_crop
I started by drawing my gnarled tree on the computer in “paint” and used Edwardian Script for the text.  Then I printed it out on white cardstock because I knew I wanted to use watercolor on it.  Next, I used white , brown and a bit of green crayons for the tree and snow.  Lastly, I painted blue and purple watercolor over the whole tag.  I love where the watercolors puddled and didn’t penetrate the crayons.
I still have embellishments to do, but I’m excited about the treble clef charm I made out of a small bead and a head pin from jewelry findings.treble clef music 001_crop
I’m a bit behind on these.  They should be received by December 1st.  Luckily, I can hand deliver a few, but the rest will not  be mailed until tomorrow night or Tuesday at the latest.
I’m feeling so peaceful and contented, and I hope you are too.  If you’re in on our Christmas tag swap, you have a sneak preview, but shhh…….  don’t tell anyone else.
