The Heart Has Wings


"The Heart Has Wings"

Heartfelt Details
Here's a  canvas collage that I made for Gecko Galz. Black, white and red is always an easy go to color scheme. Having been in the fashion industry.... I adore the image with the  combination of  a sewing mannequin with  wings.  I added the hand stitching, ribbon trim and the tiny bow to keep with the theme.

Hope your heart flies this week.
Take care, Gerri

Love Birds, Do You?





We have set up a bird feeder in our yard and are just amazed at the variety of visitors. I created this tag to honor my little feather friends.  I want to photograph them but they fly in and away so quickly this was the only way.  The supplies used for this tag were from  Retro Cafe Art, my favorite source.
Hope you will be visited by a feathered friend this week.
Take Care, Gerri

I think this Oscar Wilde quote is hilarious! I knew when I saw this  divine Retro Cafe Art image just how to portray the quote in images.  I do hope you understand my sense of humor.
Hope you will yield to temptation this week,

A True Friend is the best Possession

Hello everyone....Though I may not write or speak to all of you on a regular basis, I do count you all as true friends! With you in mind, I created this  pink and feathery ATC using beautiful Retro Cafe Art Products. It was the pretty pink feather that started my creation and the rest just flew into place.

Here's to friendship.
Do take care,
Gerri

Fine Details


To make this ATC I used the bird  ATC frame template,  chipboard birds nest and the two collage sheets  for the background and the pretty lady. It was painted, stickler and tiny blue  rub ons were used too. The hand cut sentiment, tiny eggs  and the pink feather were the final detail.

Halloween with the Gecko Galz

As you may know, Halloween is my favorite holiday. It's when I met my hubbie, so it is a special time. Today for the September Gecko Galz design team  projects, I am showing three different pieces. Go on over to their website and check out their fabulous collage sheets and activities. 

There is a 3 dimensional Halloween decoration using RHONDAS ORIGINALS images  who is doing a cross promotion with Gecko Galz. I am also showing 2 cards using Gecko Galz images. I even did a day of the day  card. Just wondering who I will send it too? Ive included the directions under the photos.

Hope you have a boo-tiful week.
Take care, Gerri


3 D Halloween decoration


Day of the Dead Card


"Boo" Vintage Halloween card




To make the vintage Halloween card I started with 2 images from the Haunted Ladies sheet. I layered them on green paper. This was layered on orange paper that was stenciled with a Retro Cafe Art spider web. All this was put on a blank black card. The black German scrap trim and the tiny Halloween masks are also from Retro Cafe Art.
The piece is accented with the word "Boo" and glitter Stickles

To Make the Day of the Dead card I surrounded the day of the dead image with paper flowers with rhinestone centers. It was layered on patterned and solid papers.
The orange German scrap  and the Day of the Dead flags were from Retro Cafe Art. The entire piece is accents with glitter Stickles.

To make  3 D Halloween decoration, I cut out the female witch, wings, bat, spider web and picnic basket. It was accented with Stickles and water color paint.
I layered her on a piece of black fiber with a blood red ribbon to hang her.

Floral Garden Hook

Heres a floral key hook that I made for Retro Cafe Art. These are real pressed flowers. When we were in New Jersey we had a huge English Cottage Garden, that I miss. Here in the south Gardening is different because of the heat. We are working on it but now we have mainly flowering shrubs like camellias and gardenias. This fall we plan on adding more plants when the weather cools down.

To make this heart shaped key hook. I covered the hook with green pressed leaves and edged it with lace.The winged image was an angel with the pretty Fairy head victorain cut out . Pressed flowers and leaves were layered on top. A tiny Stickles necklace was added for a touch of shine.

Hope you will enjoy some beautiful flowers or gardens this week.
Artfully yours, Gerri
