Pretty Card

A little card I put together for Altered Pages using collage sheet #639. The cardstock is by Stampin'Up, printed papers from Graphic 45, ribbon is vintage seam binding, and Fiskers border punch was used. Enjoy the journey.

Once Upon a Springtime Graphic 45

Had the wooden book piece for years with the intention of painting it. When I picked up the Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime collection I just had to do something with it and decided to use the book. I painted the book Delta Timberline green acrylic paint and slip slapped some ivory into the paint to tone it down. I painted the sides gold. Then the fun began deciding where and what to cut from the papers. Flowers are Prima and lace from stash. I hope you like it.

Le Cirque

Had this little burlap canvas sitting around and thought maybe it would work well with Graphic 45 Le Cirque Collection.

Grow Where You are Planted

I created this 9.5"x5" card using the Vintage Flower Seeds collage sheet from Altered Pages. Selected printed papers from Stampin'Up. Flower is from the Dollar Store which I took apart and added a brad to the center. 3 red buttons from stash.
I cut out the roses, lily, label and lady from the collage sheet and mounted on the the cardstock sheet using Pop Up Dots for a 3-d look. This card would look great framed or mounted on a distressed or painted long canvas.

Great day for a Monday

I want to thank the many followers I've had over the last few days. Followers help me continue to create and try new things. It's inspiring and encouraging. Thanks to everyone who leaves comments. I love you all.
I'm always looking for new ideas to push me along to find my own artist within and to recognize my muse.
Today, is a day to finish up a couple of things and start some new ones. Make it a creative day wherever you are.
