Tuesdays Art and Flowers!




Well its been another whole week since I have blogged anything. Its been rather busy at work this past few weeks. Winding down and only 18 more working days left. HURRAY!!! I am ready for the summer. This past week-end we went down to my brothers in Alabama and spent saturday night. My sister-in-law and I traded some plants so when I got home sunday, Daniel and I spent Sunday and Monday being yard warriors. I was off yesterday and Daniel took the day off too.

The picture above is the front of a Shadowbox that I made for my friend Kim, who is in one of my groups. We are doing a Shadowbox swap and this is the one I made with an old cigar box. This is the inside of it.

I just really enjoyed making this little box of art. And of course its full of my favorites, flowers, friends, and butterflys and birds. The girl on the right is holding a little net that I made. Here is another pic of it standing.
The next pic is the bottom of the box. I just had to do all sides as I was having fun!
Its in the mail tomorrow headed to Kim. I hope she likes it. I am going to make one for Mom for Mother's day. She had a fit over this one. Maybe I will be the little girl in it. LOL.

I am in a alter book page tip in for another group. We make our book and send pages to our partners and tell them what theme we would like them to use. Mine is going to be a "Sea and beach" theme. This is the front cover of my book.

You know I am thinking about summer with this theme. The next pictures are pages I did for on of my partners for her book. It was a vintage theme.

I used mainly rubber stamps on those pages. I hope she likes them. The next 2 pictures of some 4 x 4 chunky book pages for another monthly swap. I painted the background with shimmering H20 water colors. And then I rubber stamped the flower images over the paint. They are really pretty in person. I even made one to keep for myself.

So thanks for looking at my newest art. I have really missed every one and I will be back in the swing of posting, espiecally in 18 more days. I hope everyone has a great night!

Your box is so pretty Beth. Keep it close. It's definitely a keeper. It will make you smile every time you look at it.
