My son is training to become a glider pilot, and I put out a call to my yahoo SCAL group to help me with a glider svg. There were plenty of other aircrafts, but no gliders. Two gals , Shers and Denise came thru for me big time, and I have big hugs for the time they took to create them.
 I can't thank them enough.
I printed off a map for effect, stamped the green cardstock with a compass image all 'round. Added paint to match the gliders colors and some glossy accents to create the cabin window. The GPS stands for Glider Pilots Scolarship.....and not global positioning system  ;)

Cards crafted and painted

Tissue Flowers

I recently bought the sizzix Flowered layers #3 just so I could make my own flowers. (Tim Holtz tathered flowers is on its way) I used a designer type tissue paper I bought from the dollarama in the art dept. Cut out 4 layers for each flower and glued them together then added a gem in the middle. The difficult part is that the flowers are cut with the center missing leaving nowhere to really glue it together. So I added a circle on the bottom outside layer and went from there. Other flowers I'm trying are made with the tissue paper and very old, aged book pages....stay tuned.

Birthday card

It gets Better

This one's made with some designer tissue paper, stamps and a little perfect pearls for the sheen, and embossed with black for the sentiment. Again, sorry about the photography....using the old camera!

Clock Spinner

Just a quickie card made with lots of TH distress inks, a clock svg cut with added glossy accents btw the numbers, the compass embossed with copper,  "reach 4 the sky" stamped into the background all around, an added spinner and a few gold sq. emblishments.

Painted pieces

I haven't had a chance to sit down much at my craft table lately. Summer finally arrived and I've been out and about enjoying it. So here's a few paintings I did back in the winter months.
