Happy Artist, who am I to argue with destiny?

I am a happy artist these days, because soon I will announce a new design team I will be on for an amazing company! Yippee...The credit  is  also due to you my followers, for all your blog love, support and friendship. I'll be telling you sometime next week, so stay tuned.

For Pink Saturday today I made a little shrine that I'd like to call a "Tartlette Shrine" because I made it with a little tart pan. At my weekly summer yardsales adventures I can pick up little things that others cast off and make them into some new treasure.

To make this little treasure, I covered the heart shaped pan with Ranger alcohol ink and then dadded on some acrylic paint , then added a Stickles glitter edge. The rossette that I set inside has cut flowers,a black button with a Happy Artist image from Artchix,some white sequins and more Stickles. The topper is made by layering buttons and sequins and the base is more buttons from my button warehouse. LOL. A ticket painted white and stamped has the sentiment "Who am I to argue with destiny?"

This week, embrace your destiny and see where it just might lead you!
artfully yours, gerri

  10. It's a real delight! Better than any tart--once eaten, tarts vanish, but your art may be around a long, long while. Very nice, fun and inspired.
