Faith, Hope, and Love, plus the cover of a magazine


Been playing with my all the yummy ephemera from Vintage Page Designs again!  This is a six by six canvas, the sheet music and bird image are vintage ephemera from Vintage Page Designs, plus some  paint, crayon, the text printed on vellum, a little tulle and lots of silky seam binding around the edges.   Speaking of seam binding, if you enjoy using it as much as I do, you may want to check out the VPD Bird Challenge . . .

Can finally share this all the way for real, yay!
A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love. 

Here he is, the Rose Boy, he always makes me smile.  (You may recall I went through a crazy Valentine making spurt using this fellow. You can see, ahem, several cards featuring him HERE), and he's available at Blockheads

Anyway, the spring issue of Altered Arts is out, and you can see this layout on the cover, so I don't think I'm giving away any secrets by showing you here.  The hardware you see peeking out from the next layout, that is a fantastic set, with keys and doorknobs and keyholes--you can find it HERE.

Happy Weekend, everyone!
PS--I'd like to join my friends at Word Art Wednesday, and for the first time at Little
Birdie Blessings with the faith, hope, and love piece.

Cute little boy! Reminds me of a certain stinker of mine! *smile* Next week is Grandview Garage Sale Weekend -- can't wait to go look for bargains! I was disappointed that there wasn't too many craft booths this weekend at Truman Heritage Festival. Were you there?
