Mini box holder for mini cards.

Made these mini boxes out of cardstock. Embossed the gold swirlies on to give it some glitter. I tuck in about 5 mini cards and voila it makes a nice quick little gift.
The background is from dried leaves that I made into a stamp to use in Photoshop.

Mini card series 4 upcycling pansy pictures.

Found these pansy images in a magazine which I ripped out and glued onto a mini card using cardstock. Inserted only the front into a embossing folder to give it some texture. Used sandpaper to go over the texture to lighten areas. Background leaves gathered from my garden and scanned to my pc. Processed with Photoshop as a "stamp".

Botanical grass journal.

Picked the grass while on a walk one day. When I got home I dried them between some pages in a phone book which flattened them. Sometimes when working at my studio table I often toss paper scraps into a box. This day I reached for those scraps and found these words. I think they call that serendipity! This journal has many layers. Finished it off with fun fibres on the coil spine. Bound with my Zutter machine.
