Terry: Hiya guys Happy New Year to all of you.....I wanted to show you a few of the projects that I made for the Christmas Fair at work....I got the idea from a friend she made a few of these pots that she worked on with Fur and I thought this would be just great to make for the Christmas Fair. I had these glass pots and dressed them up with Fur......than I used two pieces of rope, the first one went on top of the pot right underneith the moss and the second pieces of rope in the middle of the pot. I worked on the stars with Gesso and Crackle....when they were dry I placed a layer of White Coarse and to cover it all up I painted the stars with Maimeri Mat Gel. To finish my projects I placed moss in the pot and around the top of the pot. Last but not Least I placed a Hyacint in the middle.

Some of the products that I have worked with:

Claire C I've had a little time off work so decided to play in my art journal and followed the free Life Book lesson kindly offered by Tam Laporte from last years Life Book. I've used lots of different products on this project and of course my lovely PanPastels. You can find all the details over on my blog

Tracy Scott - morning lovelies and a very happy new year to you all. We can't wait to see what you come up with for the final challenge of the year...
