Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it Snooooow.......in the Studio that is......

 
 
Just kidding.....it is no where near snowing here....but I have been working on my 2012 Snowmen ornaments....every year I come up with some new ones....so I thought it would be fun to share these with all my friends over at Paint Party Friday.......they are all created with wood....paint and liquid pearl paints.....I created the pieces I call "snow angels" as inspired by our son Cole...who loves snowmen and making snow angels.....





The initial Illustration at the very top of this post is going to turn into my latest Articulated Paper Doll....so be sure to pop back tomorrow for Sweet Saturdays and see the snowmen come to life....I hope there is some magic in that old silk hat I found....and when I place it on their heads...I hope they dance around!!!! Ohhhhhh.....

Wishing you a super Friday....filled with all of the comforts that make your heart happy....

Happy Friday and Happy Creating Everyone!!!

Hugs
Diana

Super Duper Snowmen!!! I was just thinking of snowmen the other day...thinking about making them the theme for my Christmas decorating this year.

This is a "cool" post! Hee hee! You make snow look fun! We just had our first snow today... I'm wondering where in Ontario you are, because I'm just over the border outside of Buffalo - way too soon for the white stuff, but it came anyway! Ha!

p.s. Cole is such a cutie - always great to see pics of his smiling face - I can see why he inspires you :)

Jessica Mack said...

Totally love your illustration. Snow men are the best! Pity it's going into summer here in Australia. I'd love a white Christmas this year!

I love your snow angels and ornies. I vaguely remember something like this back in the day (1940/50s) mom and dad had ornies like these (not the angels, but the triple rounds). Thanks for the memories. Your advice is wonderful. . . in your about me. Blessings, Janet PPF

EVA said...

Fabulous snowmen! All of them! You had me going for a minute there - shocked that you'd have snow and we didn't (so NOT ready!)

Heather said...

Ahhh I love your snowmen!!! So cute! We may be able to make some snowmen this weekend. We are supposed to get around 5 inches.

All that snow makes me shiver... heading into summer here in Australia and thinking the pool is finally warm enough for our first swim of the spring this weekend... that first illustration is fantastic ... almost makes me wish we had a cold Christmas... almost xx
