There were so many bundles to open and beauties to behold, it took 40 minutes to go through it all!
And I haven't even told you about Kim's incredible art pieces included in the Box O' Goodness! That will be another post. Until then, take a look at her blog and drool knowing that I am the proud owner of several of her beauties!
Thanks, Kim! I love it all!!
The theme Fatma chose for Mixed Media Monday was "Generations". There were so many wonderful options for this one! I finally decided on couples. What a great theme.
I used a dusy pink acrylic paint for the first layer of background, then added single layers of a paper napkin, torn into pieces. The round silver and vellum tags are symbolic to wedding bands. The purple silk petals have their own romantic story.
A couple of years ago we were RVing at a favorite site. Just up the hill was a sweet little outdoor ampitheater/church. One morning we were out walking and wandered through the area. All down the aisle, about the stone pews, and on the altar were dozens of these purple petals, quite obviously strewn by a flower girl in recent days. We began to look closer for other clues and found bits of ribbons and balloons and evidence of tulle having been taped to the stone backdrop. It was so much fun imagining the wedding that had taken place in the lovely outdoor spot. I gathered a handful of the petals and tucked them into my art box. They seemed the perfect embellishment for today's piece.

This weeks Weekend Taggers' challenge was to make an untraditional shaped tag. Since I have a fondness for the pennant shape that is what I chose. Now I'm going to go play Tag, You're It and see what everybody else has done.
If you like pennants, stay tuned.....another pennant swap is in the making. It would be great to have you join us!!

The real challenge--I don't have a lot of fish in my repertoire. Maybe that's why it's called a challenge! Here is what I came up with:
Have a great weekend!

This is a page from a few weeks ago that hadn't made it to the blog yet. I like to keep a couple in reserve for lean times. ;) Be looking for it's return a little later on--it played a part in another project I finished over the weekend, but can't reveal just yet.
In case you are wondering, the new ABC (altered book central) and I are not getting along so well. It seems I can't find what I'm looking for when I'm looking for it. The last two pages I've attempted have turned into backgrounds with some lame scraps from the work table just stuck in. I've got to get my groove back!
