Week 51 – Strawberries

This is it. The sun is on the way back. It is uplifting to think that from now on the days are getting longer. Red and green might be Christmas colours but they make me think of strawberries.

I have used a red and white skinner blend to make the body of the berries, not much white. The tops are three small slices of millifiori leaves that I had in my cane box. I tried to make the seeds by making a little texture plate of polymer clay and pressing into each of the berries. I was inspired by a cookie cutter that I think was a Christmas light. I am determined to think about summer. Only one more button to go and that will be after Christmas.

JOY TO THE WORLD – and all that stuff.
