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!

Tag Challenge - A Face

This week, Rebecca over at the Blog Challenge Garden chose the theme of 'a face' for her Tag Tuesday challenge.  Immediately when I saw her challenge I thought of this image that I found over at The Graphic Fairy.  I cropped it a bit, and it worked perfectly . . .




Can't you just see this woman, sitting on a buckboard wagon, driving the horses, exhausted, burning hot, but knowing that what she wants or needs doesn't matter.  Getting the job done is all that matters right now!  And yes, I grew up watching old westerns, how ever did you guess???  Here are the details . . .

Supplies:

  • #5 Manila Tag
  • Patterned papers - Echo Park
  • Image - The Graphics Fairy
  • Vintage lace, button and jute twine - my stash

And how much more simple can it get?  I love it when a project just falls into place and looks just as I had imagined!  Thanks for visiting!  Blessings, Becky

Wow. You are famous!!! Being published in a magazine? I am impressed. O.K. I stayed on your blog a while today and went through the challenges but I didn't find one that spoke to me. I am headed there tonight to look at some more. I am in the mood.
