Creative Wednesday - In The Garden

In between other stuff this afternoon I have made my first skinny page (3 inches by 5 inches) for this week's Creative Wednesday challenge. The theme is "In the Garden". I decided this beautiful green scrapbook paper with pink petals was evocative of the garden so I have added some stamping (Autumn Leaves swirls and Hero Arts text), a vintage image which I have cut out with scallop edges scissors (I'm having a big revival thing at the moment with my old decorative scissors!), some gesso and of course some prima flowers anchored with a brad. The page is machine stitched to some lovely handmade paper made by Ann Lawson in Esperance.

And this is a card I have made for a friend who is ultra-feminine and loves pink! It is a variation on my stitched collage cards - this one has beading and some of that lovely felt fusion stuff. You might have to enlarge the photo to see the beading around the top of the bag.

Hi Debbie!
Today I'm creating the exhibition labels for the ATCs in the upcoming CYBER FYBER show. It's given me the opportunity to peek in on your wonderful blog. Love all the new work...especially the plastic inchies...how creative!
