Lulupu's Challenge # 15: Weather or Not - My take on winter!!



I have always loved to make christmas greetings since schooldays, I used to make some simple ones like drawing a christmas tree with some gifts or the holly or santa and give away to my christian friends and teachers. Whether or not they liked it, I loved doing it for them and the reason for me to do this was my mother who thought it was a nice thought to give a teacher or friends some wishes for the season. Now back to present... when I was browsing many other sites, I came across the Lulupu site and simply loved their creations and their store of course. The challenge for the month of august had just been announced and it was to bring out a scene depicting the weather on it. I had immediately decided to go for the winter theme since santa and christmas trees were on my mind for a long time.



Taking some inspiration from a few pictures on the internet ,I decided to do a window scene from the living room with the tree and presents lying around it, a christmas stocking , the snowman and a family. I have no prior training in art or quilling or crafting for that matter, so I kept looking around the internet for ideas to represent this scene. Upon returning to the Lulupu website for this challenge I noticed that there were some updates and there was a DT member who had depicted the spring season using the window scene idea. So I took some notes from that post and carried on with my interpretation for the winter season.


I forgot to mention, I took inspiration for the family from Lulu's quilling lab. She is simply amazing, you can check her blog for more beautiful quilled creations.

So here is my entry to the Lulupu challenge # 15 for August. Hope Winter is written all over hehe!!


The prizes to be won are droolicious and hope they like my entry!! By the way, this is my first entry to any challenge.. so I will treasure this!!
