Good morning everyone! I hope your day has sunshine and cool temperatures! We are finally beginning to cool down somewhat here in East Tennessee and I have to say it is truly welcomed!
This morning I want to share with you a wall hanging I made for the challenge over at Joan's Gardens. This week's guest designer is Sherry Cheever. Now I consider Sherry to be my mentor; she left a comment on my blog early on and I was blown away by the fact that someone with so much talent would even take the time to notice! I have followed her Journey for quite sometime and she is such a creative lady. So when I heard she was going to be doing this for Joan I was so excited and could hardly wait to see what Sherry did! You can view it here: http://sherrycheever.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2011/08/11/at-joans-garden/ Of course I just had to play along and this is what I came up with. My piece can be used as a wall hanging or to just sit on an easel. My flower is made with the Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Florals die and was dipped into Utee to give it that glazed look. I tried doing it like Sherry did by making the flower first and then dipping it. It works beautifully! This is a technique I will use time and again as I love making flowers and use them on almost everything I make. Thank you Joan and Sherry!
Well this is about it for me this morning. I hope you have a wonderful day and try and find a little time just for you and "Breathe!"
