Dried Peony etc floral arrangement

Saved peonies from our garden, dried them by hanging upside down just when they are at their prime. Added a few dried birthday roses and other artificial greens for a dining room table arrangement. This is a very short arrangement - no peeking around it at dinner guests!

Take good care ...... collage.

This sheet originated from an old diary. Did the tissue texture and Golden transparent paint with gesso before adhering boy and lamb image which was printed on tissue paper giving it a transparent look. This would make a nice card.

Card Keeper Cover

Added original sheet music from early 1900's then added printed image on tissue paper finished by stamping with a flourish stamp. Tied a ribbon for closure but this pic does not show since it covered a lot of image on front of card keeper. I will have a hard time giving this one away, till I make another one. Image from Dover.

Quote on painted scrap became a bookmark.

Used this scrap of one of my painting leftovers to add a few dried pansies digitally and quote I recently heard fr Dr Edel that makes so much sense. Feel free to use this one or go to my Rustic Pixel Backgrounds blog for the original one before I started playing with it. It's amazing what you can get when you are just cleaning off the excess paint from your brush etc.
