Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


2 Sketches 4 You - Laura's Sketch # 6

Yes, it's me again! Just wanted to share my entry in this week's challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You. It's called "Joyous Birdie".

The paper is from last year's Christmas kit from WalMart. The branch is cut freehand from Bazzill orange peel textured cardstock. I traced a little birdie and the wing onto felt and cut it out, then added a green seed bead for the eye.

The tiny poinsettia bouquet is from a Christmas pick that I broke down into pieces and made into other, tinier picks! I used a little satin ribbon to wrap around the stems. I also used a little bit of Sulyn glitter glue in opal on the J and on the little snow dots.

I 'wrapped' the burgundy cardstock across the top onto a piece of cardstock, so it has a thicker, kind of padded look.
Well, enough for now - thanks for looking, and come back soon! Blessings! Becky
