I have a new passion, Oh my!!  It’s these journals that are bound with elastic cord similar to a Midori journal.  I made this one with Sizzix’s passport die and it is just so darn cute.  I love the miniature size, it’s 3.5″ x 5″ and it’s about 1.125″ thick.  Soooo, I dug deep into Read more ..

  Beautiful flourishes from Creative Embellishments, papers from Maja Design and flowers from Petaloo all come together to make this heritage layout a real beauty!  I love this vintage photo of my aunt that was probably taken in the 1930’s.  She was a beautiful woman so I wanted this layout to reflect her beauty.

I love the Creative Embellishments art palette, its just waiting for a transformation.  I decided to make a wall hanging featuring a great quote.   I painted the background with white gesso first.  Next I added Distress Oxide inks to give it lots of color.  Then some stenciling with white modeling paste.

  Last fall we visited the little town of Lynchburg, TN and made a stop at the Jack Daniels Distillery.  I have to say that is one of the best tours I’ve ever been on!  I love this photo of Dick and I on the front porch of a little country store in Lynchburg. I Read more ..

I’ve combined some of my favorite things on this tag like Creative Embellishments fairies and one of my favorite circle frames.  Then, toss in some Graphic 45 Secret Garden papers and Petaloo blooms, doesn’t get much better!   First I painted the fairies with white gesso and then I used Stickles to give them lots Read more ..
