Santa's Funky Elves

Here it is just a few days until Christmas.....(211 days to be exact). So, to celebrate, I created these two little elf stuffies. LOL....now you surely think I am going crazy especially after the last post.
No, I just decided to participate in the Cloth Paper Scissors reader challenge for "winter holiday critter stuffies". I'm telling you, this CPS for May/June 2009 was one of the best ever for me. I was so inspired and challenged by several things.

I was first inspired by the article by Pam Carriker on page 51 and thus moved to create this piece of art.

Then, because of all that inspiration, I got out the Jan/Feb issue and found inspiration in the article by Sharon Tomlinson about incorporating images from paper napkins in your mixed media and came up with this:

Anyway, I sent in my email about my stuffies and I hope they get accepted. But, even if they don't, I was moved to create and that makes me happy! THANKS CPS!!!

You are right, it was a great issue!

Beautiful work! Your critters are cuddly, and your lady lovely. That little birdie with the stockings is too cute! I am so glad you liked my article, it was near and dear to my heart:-)

Hi:)

Greetings:)

Many thanks for the compliments. I am delighted and thrilled. Not only that, believe me, I have grown two inches taller with pride:)

Whether you are making advance preparations for Christmas (perhaps you can bake a cake also for it is only a few more days for Christmas) or taking part in competition, these are gorgeous, colorful art crafted with great imagination and painstaking artistic skill.

The second photo is breathtaking. I can see a lovely butterfly on the shoulder of the gorgeous girl who is looking invitingly at the butterfly with her dazzling blue eyes.

I am confident your entry will be accepted.

I’m not going to make any predictions this time:)

I will pray and keep my fingers crossed.

Have a lovely day:)
Joseph
