Winter 8x10s

I switched out the decorations in our 8x10 frames pretty close to Christmas, so I wanted to do something that could easily work for 'winter' decorations afterward. Here they are before Christmas ~

The center column uses my "Christmas" ambigram & a drawing I did a few years ago. After Christmas I switched the center column with more snowflakes ~

I actually used 3 colors of blue paper for the backgrounds (the four corners are a different shade) but you can not tell at all in person. I blame our dim lighting!

I always enjoy making paper snowflakes for Christmas & they look even prettier framed! Here you can find my tutorial for cutting snowflakes from a few years ago. It's been very popular!

These are so pretty! After you mentioned it, I can tell that you have different shades of blue. You are really good at snowflakes!

Thank you!

I think you were having commenting problems on Live Journal with OpenID, not here (I post on both), so that might be why. Although sometimes I have trouble like that with OpenID and later it works fine.
