I just wanted to take a minute to give a whole lot of thanks to my teacher Yollande who made us see things very differently ( 3-D)...who showed us how to be patient. Thanks for having shared so much of your many talents with all of us. Those 25 years or so with you have enabled us to share- laugh and be creative. My hat is off to you! Again many thanks!

Finally, after all the work was finished,I put on snow just about everywhere: I put on little globs of silicone here and there,immediately adding snow on top before the silicone could dry. The snow had to be put on just a bit at a time (it took about two hours). The snow is made from crushed glass, so one has to be careful. This is the final outcome:the final piece of the art of paper tole!

I've been working on the house: the chimney and the smoke has first been added;then another roof was put on the house .The little porch has a new door with knob; it also has an added roof. A dormer window was then put on the roof of the house;then another roof added plus the snow on each side. All the windows were added to the house, followed by the window frames

I start with what is the farthest...ex...the mountains.I cut pieces..work them with tools..then glue with clear silicone.Here , I did the mountains and some of the small trees that are further away.(sometimes I have to improvise and create pieces ).The trees are cut into many small pieces and each is feathered with small scissors and glued one by one,beginning at the bottom working up or vice-versa.
