Dance of butterflies in music theme.

Several years ago I made this for a neighbors daughter for her graduation. She is now in university and heading in the direction of a Pediatrician. Her mother tells me she is still enjoying the tray. I gave this to her as I knew she played piano and was very musical. Sheet music was from a Etude music magazine dated 1902. I tried to include the date on the tray for nostalgia sake. As with most of my trays I did a glass overlay to protect the rather tactile pieces such as a vintage butterfly brooch in bottom right. The butterfly from Irish linen in upper right corner was from one of my shopping trips. When I did this I really didn't know what a collage of sorts was. Little did I know where all this would end up heh! CLICK ON PICTURE TO SEE THE DETAILS. Thanks for reading!

My 1st blog anniversary & some tech info

It's been a year since I started my blog and I want to take this opportunity to thank all my followers and those of you who just stop by to see what I have been creating. I don't receive many comments so I really don't know what people are thinking but that may be due to the problem Blogger has with the Comments. Which leads me to the technical part of this post. I understand that Google's browser; CHROME was designed for viewing blogs. I have been using it and am able to leave comments even on my own blog now. So hopefully I can now interact with those who want to. If you tried to leave me a comment and it didn't work try CHROME as your browser when viewing blogs. It's a fast and free browser, downloads in seconds. You can find it here:
http://www.google.com/chrome?hl=en for the english version. Works with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

Did the above on watercolor paper then scanned it and played with it in Photoshop adding a vintage rose pic ripped from a 1900's magazine.

Thanks for reading! Uniquely Myself!

3 ATC's in Orange Theme

Orange is my least favorite color but I force myself to use it at times like this. Hoping to trade these at the next ATC swap.
