I found it in my garden......

Keron - the "Colourguru" is hosting a deco swap with a difference for the Paper Traders group on Yahoo. We are to make 2 covers - 3.5" x 5.5", 6 pages - 3" x 5" & 6 charms, all of which will be swapped out. Here are my charms & pages.......

The Charms
(Click picture for a larger image)

Tinted gesso & cheesecloth, gel medium transfer & collage

Rusty tools
Fluid acrylic background, stamping & collage, edges embossed with vintage photo distress powder which looks & feels like rust.

Tinted & white gesso, cheesecloth & collage. Deeper blue added with Neocolour watercoluble crayons.

Fluid acrylic & stamped backgound, gel medium transfer & collage. Covered with a gold metallic glaze which doesn't show up on the scan & bees painted with h2o's.

Birds singing

Layers built up with tissue, coloured glazes & collage images to add depth with the addition of mica chips.
