Wednesday's Tag "secrets"

Tag is first distressed with Glimmer Mists (Tattered Angels); stamped with the Lady in a long coat by Altered Pages, the flower image is also by Altered Pages, sheet #598. Buttons from stash. What is her secret? I guess we will never know. Maybe it's hiding under her long coat, or maybe she has been stood up in the garden.

My newest 10 min cards

Background papers and cardstock is by Stampin'Up. Images are from Altered Pages. I love doing the 10 min cards. I like to use up what is sitting on my table. It's one way of cleaning off you table without throwing things away.

A pretty little card

I love making cards, tags, atcs with left over paper and embellishments after finishing another project. Here is my most recent card. Simple but cute.
Thanks for visiting my block. You are all great followers.

Le Romantique canvas

This is actually not a stretch canvas but a piece of 7.5x7.5 mdf board that I painted the edges and covered the surface with some paper by K&Co. The image is cut from Graphic 45 LeRomantique collection. The pearl and lace are by Prima. Handmade satin roses and metal flowers by Graphic 45 finish the piece. I just love doing these little canvases. So many of the new papers by Graphic 45 and other companies really inspire me. Enjoy

Altered spoon

This is not my best steampunk, but it was fun to do. I found this old dessert spoon from a collector's series. It has a kangaroo at the top..but it's from a Canadian collection. In the bowl of the spoon I glued in some watch parts to look like they were spilling out. It's for a swap so I hope my partner likes it. The group has been doing some really awesome spoons. Mine pales in comparison. I will do another one later on.
