This is my place to share my creative bits and pieces. My art has no rules, no limits and absolutely no order. My projects change with my moods but for the last few years, my main focus has been paper art. Cards, collage, mixed media and as many techniques as I can get to. My inspiration comes from everywhere.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

Once again, the great colour combo. My second attempt...
Mono embossing is a fun technique layering the same colour on itself, having the embossing break the colour up and give it tons of tactile and visual texture. Butterflies. They have been a popular design element for years and they probably always will be. They're like flowers or geometric shapes, a good 'go to' for designs. The light sheen on the butterflies comes from the crystal effects that I brushed on after  I completed the card.
Here is another look without the shine...
 Just a reminder to you- you can click on a picture on any post, for a larger version.

Have a ridiculously amazing day! (read that on Pinterest and I love it)
