Stained Glass and Glitter - what a combo!

Hi Peeps!

What a lovely start to this week we have had - blue skies,sunshine and Dark Mofo!
What's not to like, especially after an earlier cold break with snow!

Here is a view from the top of the mountain of Hobart.....

My bay is the one on the right hand side edge - you can see some fuel containers on this side of the river - we are on the other side and see them too!
A beautiful view from one of the lookouts on the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington thanks to Mawson Sheepskin & Opals who says:
Snow! It’s getting frosty in Tassie up at kunanyi/Mt Wellington!

Happy Birthday Mrs Queen.

It has been a wee bit cold here lately and some snow fell on the mountains

Walking through a magical scene on kunanyi/Mt Wellington thanks to Grace Wherrett.

Thinking warmer thoughts, apparently this weekend is the official birthday - as apposed to the actual birthday - of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. As such, we in Tasmania are enjoying a long-weekend. Apparently we are not a Republic yet; who knew!  I will take a day off (well, it would be better if I was at work and got a day off; when every day is a day off, it doesn't feel the same) anytime.

Maybe some day soon this long weekend can be to celebrate us becoming a Republic! Not that I have anything against the Queen of Britain -she is a trojan, that is for sure. But she is not my Queen. It is all very strange........

Anyway, Happy Birthday Queenie......

Hope the Trooping of the Colours went well. 

Today is also the beginning of the second week of our latest challenge

June Challenge #90: Stained Glass using Dies TWIST Use some Glitter

Do you ever have those periods when you think you have a lot of time to complete something and then discover that other things come between you and completion? Yep, me too.

A breathtaking photo from the Overland Track, in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, thanks to Cam Blake from Tasmanian Photography Workshops 

Hello Peeps - hope that your crafting time is productive and often. We have hit winter in the southern climes and the first day was a beautiful blue sky day and quite warm - go figure. This was preceeded by a week of cold weather and snow on the mountains. Today is coldish and RAINING - isn't that good! Not heavy, just a good drizzle. Great for the garden. If you are in the South - keep warm.

If you are in the Northern half of this globe - welcome to Summer and heatwaves! Keep cool and dry.

On with Challenge #90
Stained Glass Techniques using Dies 
 TWIST Use some Glitter

This technique with dies is an oldie and a goodie and gives lovely effects .....

This is what the marvelous and inventive DT came up with!


Let's see what you can make. 

Forgot to add - yes, there is a prize for random draw

$15 Aus at shop of your choice or through PayPal.

If you go to Jennifer McGuire : she has a few ideas that you can adjust for dies rather than stamps

Lets see how you go making something using a die and the stained glass idea - 
the TWIST to use glitter is up to you but it certainly makes a great look!
