Challenge #199 - Out with the Old, In with the New!

Poobah Rosemary here and you know what, it's time to look at the year that was and ahead to the year to be.  I would like you to create with the theme of:

 Out with the old, in with the new

Have you learned new technique?  

Taking up one you've forgotten?  

Show us what you have made with it!!!!
Electra here:
I made a couple of digital pieces using some sunrise photos I took on my
Christmas vacation.  I know, I know, digital art is not new for me, but the sunrise evokes
a feeling of hope, with the coming of a new year.

Credits can be found on my blog.

I also made a card using a thread technique I have not used for a long time:
 THAT is my real new technique for this challenge!

Deena here: I have been playing around with the dump load of washi tape I have laying around and decided to try and make some of these feathers....they are fun to play with and don't take much effort...might have to play around with some different colours and styles next.

The Poobahs wish you a happy and healthful 2015!!!!

Link your creation below in the comments and 

we will see you with our 200th challenge on 

January 11, 2015!!!

(who knows, there may be a big giveaway in store)

Challenge #198 - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a Merry little 

Christmas....pull out all the stops and 

show us your most fabulous Christmas 


You have plenty of time to link up below

 in our comments, this challenge doesn't 

close until December 27.

I am, by the time you read this, winging my

way to my grandson and happily leaving 

the cold of my own home.  (Hah!)

Before I left though, I made a "hanging" for 

want of a better word, using all sorts of

 bits and pieces from my stash. 

 Amost all images used are from Gecko

 Galz, with the exception of the mod Xmas 

tree and the penguin.

I hope you have the best Christmas ever

and that we continue to share our art with 

you in the coming year! 

Chat Noir here, from the beginning of a sunny summer's day on the opposite side of the world..........

I was hoping to show off some Christmas cards, but once again I can only display good intentions,so I started on a set of ATCs that I can add to cards if I ever get around to making them. And if I don't, I'll have lots of little treasures to tuck into the parcels instead.


 I love the faded colours and the old-fashioned images.

  Deena here:I have been busy making and mailing cards this past couple of weeks and here are a few that I have completed (there are at least 4 of each kind made...most of them, I made 6 of cuz that was how the paper divided up nicely - about 50 cards or so...I am soooo done with Christmas cards right now....I am putting it all away until next October) along with us, will you? Oh, and have a super awesome Christmas season!
