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!


A Little Flower for CPS # 79

I'm so pleased with the card that I made for this week's Card Positioning Systeme, or 'CPS' sketch! It was just one of those where everything comes together. What do you think???

I used an aqua colored Bazzill cardstock, then made a matted rectangle using Jenni Bowlin Studios 'Tangerine Dream' paper.

The glittered frame is a piece of Bo Bunny's Bleached Bare Naked Chipboard, glittered with Sulyn Industries 'crystal' glitter. I then tied a bow of aqua organza dotted swiss ribbon, and added a bit of bling.

The flower is from a copy of a botanical print of a cabbage rose that I printed from clipart software, then cut very carefully! It is raised up off the card on various sizes of foam squares.

The quote came from Fancy Pants 'Fancy Free Collection' Free Spirit die cuts. And how right was Hans Christian Anderson!

Well, that's it for now. I hope you've enjoyed this latest creation. Come back to visit Camellia Cottage again soon. Be blessed! Becky
