My Muse has finally returned.....

after having gone AWOL for over a month! It's feels so good to be creating again and here's my next contribution to the Culture RR I'm currently participating in.....

Anke chose the Egyptian Culture for her book & I decided to do a spread about the Blue Nile Lily. Background is tinted gesso, stamping then white gesso over the top, text is printed on papyrus, the 2 lilies are painted with H2O's,they have a marvellous shimmer, which as usual doesn't show up on the scan and the edge of the page is embellished with metallic fibre, beads & charm.

ATC Tag swap

Have finally managed to make some tag ATC's for a Paper Traders swap. Even though I'm hosting this swap, you would have thought I'd have loads of ideas lined up....not the case, so this is my final attempt ........

Background is stipled Lumieres in gold & bronze then stamped with Stampers Anonymous honeycomb stamp. The bees were stamped, painted with H2O's, cut out & adhered to the card as well as a French bee definition. The edge of the card was finished with a copper leafing pen.

Unfortunately the shimmer of the metallic background & H2O's just doesn't scan well.

1st post

Well here I am creating a's taken me long enough, as soon as I get the hang of this, I'll post some artwork.
