Not All Who Wander Are Lost

 I made this shadowbox using the wonderful background image from

A haunting portrait of a woman...a ghost

Is she searching for a lost love...

I printed the image on velum + glued it to the back of an open back wood shadowbox. I had already decorated the shadowbox using dye sprays in speckled egg blue, frayed burlap + white.

Dried moss on the roof

Moss inside on the bottom, with tombstones I sprayed in frayed burlap + white

A single rose rests at one tombstone.

Another ghost in the background.

A chipboard word


I used a color changing tea light in the back.

Happy Fall Pumpkin Aug GG Design Team Challenge

My fav time of the year!
Apple cider, red + orange leaves,pumpkins + all the beauty that Fall brings

I created this fabulous pumpkin wall art for Gecko Galz!

I created a Finnabair inspired project using a 12.5" wood pumpkin shape.
I started by laying down textures using modeling paste and stencils.
When dry,I glued on wood shapes, paperclay decorations, art stones + strands of plastic beads

Gessoed over top and left to dry

Next I sprayed with different shades of Lindys art sprays.

I added die cut sunflowers using a brown plaid and bee scrapbooking papers.The center has vintage pearl centers from some old jewelry

The leaves are also diecuts

The bright sunflowers are from Gecko Galz new Fall Icon line
Aren't they FABULOUS!!

I layered them with a large and smaller one to give them more depth.

Wax pastes were used to highlight the textures on the background

I also added mini glass beads in a rust shades.

The letters saying HAPPY FALL are wood. I quick spray + my pumpkin is finished, ready to hang on  a door or wall.


Sept DT Gecko Galz Challenge Autumn Calling Pixie Tag

I have made a layered burlap tag, for the Gecko Galz DT Sept Challenge.

Autumn  Calling

A sweet wee pixie with a balloon brocade of autumn leaves

I cut her out and she was layered on a orange burlap tag, then a slightly larger purple burlap tag

A diecut bush and some diecut tree twigs over top

I then die cut 2 sunflowers out of a fall color pattern paper, and put them together using an eyelet

Put it on the top of the tag with some beautiful colored silk suri ribbon. 

Sept Gecko Galz DT Challenge Autum Calling -Braided Edge Celtic Card

This card features a gorgeous Autumn Celtic Circle 

I did a Braided Edge technique on the card.

Its easier then it looks. lol

I found a free pattern on Pinterest. There are also tutorials on youtube

A snip here, a fold there...and voila! You have a really classy edge on your card.

The cardstock I used is a pearl salmon color.

I glued 2 silk autumn leaves to the center of the card, then added the celtic circle

On the top and bottom of the card, I used designer scrapbook paper to add a pretty edging.

Tiny light green sparkle gems were then added on the braided edge

Sept 1 Arty Divas Challenge


This is my card as a DT for Arty Divas. Our challenge for Set 1 is from

I chose this beautiful dandelion design.

I colored it in shades of yellow using my Prisma Premier markers, with green leaves

A background of yellow flowers with blue accents, highlight the yellow dandelion

I edged the floral image in yellow

In the center of the flower is a dazzling green gem

Enjoy Life!
