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!

Our Creative Corner Challenge - Faces

Hello folks!  I just wanted to do a quick post to share with you this card I made for Our Creative Corner's challenge this week!  The challenge is to feature a face or faces on your project.  And here is my card . . .




I really let my 'vintage' style shine on this card, and I love it!  Here are all the details . . .

Supplies:
  • Card stock (kraft) - The Paper Studio
  • Patterned papers - Melissa Frances
  • Red card stock - Core-dinations
  • Button -  Buttons Galore and More
  • Ribbon - WalMart (Maybe!)
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Image - Bumble Buttons
  • Ink - Stampabilities

Tools:
  • Computer and ink jet printer
  • Cricut Expression with Walk In My Garden and Elegant Edges cartridges
  • Ruler, scoring tool, rotary cutter, scissors and craft knife

Here is a close-up of the image I used . . .






I think this is one my very, VERY favorite images!  I cut her out from the background and popped her up on some foam pieces.  I also inked the edges to give it more of a feeling of age.  I think I see some Christmas Tags using this in my future!  :o)

Thanks so much for visiting, and come back soon to see what I've been working on!  Blessings, Becky

Beautiful card, Becky! Love your image and how you've popped her up in a 3D way. The sentiment on the dark cardstock is such a nice contrast. Thanks for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner!
