Some more ATC's!

Stenciled with gold texture paint then added some bling before adding this quote from a newspaper.

Did a background texture then added scraps of printed tissue and ripped text before finishing with a tissue overlay and Golden's Gel.

Made this ATC by painting different golds and a touch of soft pink on brown paper. Cut out a oval then inserted a photo from magazine. Finished off with pink ribbon and gold rub on spelling HI.

Added background with tissue paper that was stamped with the leaves then added text. Finishing with a frame from some watercolor play. Oh my these closeups reveal alot of extras!

Dreamer card design

This was so much fun to do! Found the image on Teresa Stanton's site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/teresa-stanton/page26/
The background was one of my paintings on a box top then I altered it digitally creating a grunge look. Go to my Rustic Pixel Backgrounds blog for the free background to do what you want with. One day I hope to print this off and do a beeswax collage with it on a canvas board. I would make two holes on top and hang it with a black embossed velvet ribbon! Too many ideas and not enough time. Enjoy.

Sandra decorative tray

For the background took a vintage doily and placed it on top of decorative tissue then scanned it into my pc. Took it to a printer and had it printed in a large format. Tray size is 18 x 11 inches and 1 1/2 inches deep. Once glued down added various embellishments.


The rose petite point necklace was very old now it is sealed under the layer of glass on this tray. Added beads all the way around top of glass to cover my glue. Did a gold crackle on inside and outside of tray. Couldn't resist this fortune cookie. Fern fronds from my garden.



I still have the doily hoping to do something else with it.

Happy Mother's Day Card


Took the photo of flower then digitally enhanced the edges. My dear mother is 96 &1/2 years old. Her mind is very sharp but her body is failing her. She is a remarkable person. A pleasure to visit with. Friday I am hoping to take her to the garden center, she had and still does have a passion for growing things. She is living in a assisted living facility which limits her planting but she has her windows filled with houseplants.
