Watercolors***


I have been taking some online watercolor classes and practising my
poppies. I love the fluidity of watercoloring and the fact that you
can be as real or as whimsical as you like.

Baby Album***

Hi again! 
This is a cute gatefold album that I made for a friend's daughter
that just had a little baby boy..
I used a paper collection that I bought at Mary Maxims when I was
in the States a while back...  Lovely colors and lots
of great chipboard pieces to add.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Good morning!!!
We had to get a new computer this past weekend and I am just getting a handle on
using Microsoft surface and all its newness!
I made these Valentine's Day card and little chipboard hangers
for my children....
The card uses Tim Holtz' blueprint stamps and the
hangers are made out of chipboard, painted with distress
stains.  I used a Wendy Vecchi stencil and
Dylusions spray in Linen. 
The hearts are cut our of chipbard, painted and a little glitter added.
The big XO is a Tim Holtz die and the ribbon is from my stash!
I hope it doesn't take me forever to figure out all this new computer stuff!!
