Attitude Wall Hanging

I created some art. Can you believe it? It seems like it has been forever since I last felt like getting messy and letting the creative juices flow. I found this wall hanging at a thrift store for $1.99 about 6months ago and it has been kicking around my craftroom every since. I was finally inspired today to do something with it. It was a very shiny brass so I Alcohol Inked it in several colours just to give it some depth. I than Glimmer misted the "base". Found a picture I liked and a quote that spoke to me added some vintage goodies and voila I am done. I think I like it.

The quote reads:I decided long ago never to walk in anyone's shadow. If I fail, if I succeed, at least I live as I believe. "Greatest Love of All" Whitney Houston

Beaver Creek photo's

It's been a while since I posted. I have taken lots of time off work this summer just so I could hang with my family and friends. These are just a few of my favorite photos from an outing to Beaver Creek.

I loved this purple flower and the blurred background. I Really fell in love with it after I turned it black and white.




Here is some of the "wild life" I found while we were hiking.



I never should have shown Ruby-Jean how much fun this is. If she spots a Dandylion with "fuzz" she has to stop and blow it away.
