Always Forever Lilly Of The Valley

Today for Retro Cafe Art, I am participating in something that I love to do....a swap. This one is an ATC Valentines swap and you can find all the lovely details here. My little creations  are trimmed with white and pink lily of the valley fabric flowers. We had lily of the valley  in my grandmother's garden growing under the bay dining room window. It was a cool shady spot and it smelled so beautiful. I remember it fondly. I am sharing these sweet flowers with my swap partners, I hope they will enjoy them too.

To make these ATCs I started with the Layered Valentines Frame ATCs and painted them with pink, white and lavender acrylic paint. I cut out the pretty images from the Roses Roses collage sheet.( Studio update, I found my scissors! Hooray!) The ATCs were trimmed with lace punched paper, lily of the valley flowers and a pink embroidered heart. Everything was topped with Pink Stickles, Dimensional Pink Pearl and touches of water color paint.

Hope you will take time to remember a special childhood place this week.
take care, gerri
