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.

Here is my Valentine for you-
The heart can angle this way......
or this way. Why?
It's a  magnet! I took apart a cookie tin from the Thrift Store and using old scissors, cut out a rough heart shape. Attached a magnet to the back of the heart and we have a connection.
I used a dental tool to scratch up the side of the tin that I was applying the Dimensional Glaze to. This is to give it 'tooth', something for the glue to really hang onto. Better than a slick surface.
The heart was also clear embossed for protection and added strength.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please go see what Terre has to show you and don't forget to take part in the Queen of Hearts Challenge. I think you'll be so glad you did!

I discovered freeform beading before Christmas. The first bracelet I made, I liked enough to give as a gift to a very dear friend of mine, but I knew then I needed to make one for myself too.
Did I mention that freeform beading is highly addictive? Oh yes, it is!
So......along came three more.
So much texture.
That's enough- for now.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed seeing something a little different.
Please check back tomorrow- you'll be glad you did- I promise!

Honestly, what else could I call this post? This beautiful heart with the blooming rose and the perfectly penned 'Love', work together so well. Suzanne from Quietfire Design has nailed it again!
Strips of embossed cardstock provide the background and a few bronze pearls round out the design.
Do you have your Valentine(s) ready?
Thanks for stopping by!
