She who plants a garden

Hoping you had a pleasant Mothers Day weekend.We  went out for a drive to a pretty spot on the river. I spent the day catching up on some movies and tv shows while cleaning my craft studio.  It really needed it. I watched the Sherlock Holmes season 2 on PBS...totally amazing. I do recommend it.  I was also able to make a few things, but mostly I cleaned! LOL.

Today's creation for Retro Cafe Art is a Shelf Shrine with scallops. I painted it a rich purple and added a paper backgrounds I created with stamping, luminous paints and acrylic paints. It is trimmed with shiny pink German Dresden Foil papers, pretty pink and purple pearls, painted paper flowers and green velvet leaves. The lovely lady is from the RCA Vintage Belle  collage sheet.The sentiment says "She who plants a garden plants happiness"...an old Chinese saying.

Hope you will plant some happiness this week.
take care, gerri
