Color Blog Hop Wednesday -- December 9, 2015

Hi Everyone:   I'm finally back from my trip out West and it is another blog hop Wednesday.  We have a small group this week.  Some are sick and some are working hard, but the rest of us are here.  You should have arrived this week by way of Joni's blogsite.  I love her creations, they are always super.

Here is our inspiration piece this week and our colors:

 I'm doing a little something different this week.  I have been so swamped each day with yet another thing to try to get done.  You know how it is, you need at least 27 hours in the 24 hour day.  So I knew Tuesday morning I was getting together with crafting friends at an art studio to work on a "Vintage Christmas Tree."  The colors this week worked quite well in my tree.  Not much Cherry Cobbler, so I used that color as my photo backdrop.  The colors in the tree are mostly grays and browns.

It is a little difficult to get the full idea from a photo, but the tree is made from paper.  Actually they are pieces cut from a music book.  The paper is given the vintage look by sponging Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, the print is gray, and then the whole tree is assembled and sprayed with adhesive and sprinkled with gray glitter.  It is different, and we had a blast working on our trees.  Now where do I put it?

Have a wonderful day and a great weekend.  Now hop along to Robbie's blogsite.  See you again soon.

Crafty Hugs,

This is gorgeous, Sandy! How big is it? Because I'm always looking for things to make for my ladies' banquet favors at church. So cool!
