And we are off...

It's April 1st and the blog is up and running, no joke! Now back to the studio and to my ever growing to do list, that my brain keeps making up. Many swaps, challenges, cards, layouts and submission float in those brain cells. Thank goodness we hoard sketch books in this house.

I'm working from old family photos I picked up in Texas last summer. I sort through a stash of photos and go to work.

The first is The Aunt. Mixed media. I used the almost dead sewing machine, and it still did a few stitches for me. The zig zags are zig break zag, great for mixed media, eh! Used stencil and Glimmer Mist for the background. And lots of paper flowers. Wonderful to see flowers, especially while I made this, it was snowing outside.


And Aunt SFK 55 Style. I just love Graphic 45 papers dearly. It's beautiful. I want to frame it. My dear friend Cracker, (thanks again) sent me the vintage lace, ok, a bag of lace, ribbon and bias, that I am still drooling over.
I'll post the third one soon. It is prepped and awaiting my ink stained hands.

Blessings,

Elaine
