"Feathers and Boughs..."

...are combined together in my Zen Journal to create
a twist on the old familiar wintry
snowflake.
This was started at the Grand Canyon
in November...
and just completed last night...
almost a month later!
Good Grief!
:)
And, of course...
(with the aid of Microsoft Digital Editor)
I had to flip her to enhance her more traditional
frosty flakiness.
I just couldn't help it!

They say that every snowflake is different.
If that were true,
how could the world go on?
How could we ever get up off our knees?
How could we ever
recover from the wonder of it?”

For a change I prefer the unflipped side. Lovely Christmassy design.

I love it when your creative mind does something out of the ordinary. It is gorgeous.

LOVE IT! -- all capitals, not to be loud and rude; but no other means of expression would do. LOVE IT!

I think Dan Kent would call these brain prints. I like your brain!

Margaret, your stuff is always so inspiring. I still think we need to plan a get together sometime. I notice the Sketchbook Project on your site. Are you participating? I have a sketchbook from it but am not as far along I wish I were. Must get busy with it.

beautiful creation! I love how it turned out, and the consistency and complexity of the design is just mind blowing!

Dan Kent said...

This is so creative!! I love the way you made a snowflake out of these - it is so beautiful! 1 + 1 = 3. That is creativity!! I like the first non-enhanced version best. So excellent!! (And as for taking forever to complete it - welcome to my life.)
