Together We Go Far....

After some recent impactful events, my husband and I decided to take a few moments to reflect on them and plan what we would like to do in the future.   

I wanted to create a card as a reminder that we can achieve great things together.   While looking through my favourite dies, I found this Cheery Lynn Design Frame die - Homeward Bound.   The design fit perfectly to my theme.   Ducks always fly together in the V formation to help them conserve energy and enable them to go the distance.  Using the distress inks, I created a dawn/dust background to reflect a "TEAMed" journey of a lifetime.  

I am also entering this card in the Cheery Lynn Make It Manly blog challenge.  Always amaze at what others made with the beautifuf Cheery Lynn dies.

Doilies Flowers

Hi!!  Today, I have another project using the Cheery Lynn Designs beautiful doilies and Graphic 45 paper.  I cut different doilies designs to make some lace flowers.  The dies are amazing and create such intricate designs on these doilies.   To emphasize them, I added some lights behind the flowers.

The doilies are stacked up to create the flowers.

 The lights are switched to add different yellow hues to the flowers. 

Close-up look at the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Scrapping : )

Mixed media Layout

Hi,  now that the taxation month was over passed, I can shift my focus back to my art activities.  Today, I have a mixed media layout incorporating the beautiful and intricate doilies using Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  I also cut some foam using the chicken wire die which was perfect to create texture on the background.  The patten papers are from Graphic 45 Secret Garden collection.

Three different doilies were stacked together to create texture around the photo.

The chicken wire foam were glued to the background before the flowers and bird cage were added.
