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!


Sketch This # 60 - Simple Pleasures

Oh NO! Not another sketch challenge, lol! Yep, I just found Sketch This, and here is my entry for this week's sketch - # 60.
I just love these Fancy Pants papers and rub-ons from the 'Simplicity' line. They all look like old fabrics and pattern instructions from the 1950's era. I used the floral side of 'Form' for the base, then added a section of the brown side of 'Unity' in the center top. The green 'pattern instructions' section is on one side of - believe it or not - 'Patterns', lol! I've matted it on the pink polka dotted side of the same. The section across the bottom with the pink ric-rack is from 'Decorate'.
I used several of the rub-ons from the same line, including the 'Quick Measure' at the very bottom, the 3 dresses just above the ric'rack, and the words 'simple' and 'pleasures'. The pink ric-rack to the left is real ric-rack, as is the stitching in brown. I used a cross stitch look stitch, a straight stitch, and a zig zag stitch. I embellished with three coordinating buttons, a bow of old lace, and a pink satin ribbon rose. Thank you for looking, and for visiting Camellia Cottage. See you later! Becky
