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.

My DH and I have always known how blessed we are with the friends we have. We've reached an age where life has proven many times, how important friends are to us and 'who' they are. This beautiful sentiment from Quietfire Design sums it up perfectly. We hope we've been a sheltering tree for others.
The technique here is Embossing Folder Print and it's so easy. Inks are dabbed onto the folder after you decide which side of the folder you want to use. I use my art journal to do test stamps so I can choose my end result. Once inked up, a light spritz of water moves the inks a touch. Then you lay the card stock over it and smooth it all over with your hands, or a brayer or an acrylic block or your bone folder.....you get the idea :)
For this card, I gave it a little spritz of walnut ink as well, then completed the card. I think it needs a little something in the top right corner. What do you think? I have bling or a small pennant could go there, or a button. Or nothing at all? Let me know.
I hope you have steadfast sheltering tree friends in your life and that someone thinks that of you. As I said....priceless.
Have a fabulous day and thanks for looking!
