Sing Out A Pretty Time

There are many reasons I blog, for friendship, to show my work and also to challenge myself. Trisha Too had a swap awhile back where she sent you some of her stash and we had to create something out of it. It was wonderful to see how everyone put their own spin on her stash. I didn't know what supplies I would receive and it was fun opening the envelop and being surprised.

I made an ATC using a little of everything Trisha put in the mailer. Her cut vintage girl image carrying the basket was the starting point. I even used a bit of her lace to make the basket. stand out The base of the ATC was some shiny crinkly paper and the background is a piece of patterned paper I painted over. Some rhinestones, Stickles and the sentiment Sing Out A Pretty Time were the finishing highlights.

Hope you get to sing out this week.
artfully yours, gerri
