Here's a skinny a made for this challenge...I thought she'd make a beautiful grandmother...one of my favorite memories of my gram is this wonderful button box she kept in a drawer in her old Singer sewing machine. There were all sizes and colors of buttons, and quite a lot of renegade threads. I loved to watch her sew and embroider her linens. I still have a few dresser scarves she made, they're my treasures! Thanks for stopping by!
It's Easter! The dogwoods, azalea, tulips and crocus are very busy blooming around here. The trees are unfurling their green leaves and we're mowing the grass at least twice a week and in a planting frenzy! So, here's to a glorious Easter and a lovely spring! Hope you like my card.
For this challenge, I chose the song "My Foolish Heart" published in 1949 by Victor Young and Ned Washington. It was an Oscar Nominee for Best Song of the Year, recorded by the greats from Frank Sinatra to Johnny Mathis.
"The night is like a lovely tune, beware, My Foolish Heart!"
I used Darlene McElroy's faux encaustic technique from her book "Surface Technique Treatments".
This is such a wonderful swap...it caught my imagination right away from the gate chipboard book to the images. We create four pages and they'll be swapped out. I finished mine and thought I'd share them here.
