The heart stamp has been a favorite of mine for so long. One of the first stamps I ever bought (198?)
Santa is from Paula's Kit Club!
I have been a member for 2 years and each month I get a box of papers, germanscrap, ribbons, a rubberstamp, collage sheets, charms, papers and matching envelopes and more!!! Each month is a different theme. It's one of my favorite places!!!

Three Muses Fun and Games!

I always enjoy taking a page from a magazine and then adding cutout images to tell a story!
All images are from paperwhimsy. I did this cut and paste 3 years ago and I just held on to it! So when the challenge of fun and games came up, I thought I'd show you

Fairy Slipper Swap at Paperwhimsy!!!

These are for an exchange! I chose the the colors"grunge Marie".
Dusty rose, silver and black.
The pink toile paper is wallpaper my mother in law had in her entry. She love toiles and this paper was handmade! Fortunately she saved the extra paper! The tag ornaments are paperwhimsy girls that I thought might be a young "marie"! I used tim holtz acrylic tags and used golden matte medium to paste image under tag(no muss, no fuss)! the backs of the slippers are all the french toile wallpaper.
I am thinking that fairy slippers might make fun gifts for the holidays!!!
Watch out JIMMY CHOO!!!!
Please click to enlarge and see the details!

Tag Tuesday! Pink, purple and silver!

Embossing paste on purple foil!

Blue Monday!

Washi paper bowl!
Layers of washi paper layered on a wooden bowl and then removed from bowl . Using the technique you can make a paper bowl out of any papers you wish. The papers must be toner and not inkjet, so the inks don't bleed. Seal finished bowl with acrylic varnish of your choice. (I like Delta semi-gloss)

Mixed Media Monday! Bedtime stories

Goodnight Moon

I colored in a black and white page in the book!
