life atc

This week has been too busy for my taste. Too
much going on, and not enough down time, even
today. Seriously in need of a little art therapy,
I stole a few minutes in the art room, and made
this atc--



Does anyone still use twinkling H2Os? Those shimmery
watercolor paints--ohhhh, I DO like those. I wish you
could hold this in your hands and see the iridescence
of the citrine, turquoise, and amethyst! And the image's
Mona Lisa type smile (she's from Altered Pages) is a nice
accompaniment to the text. A little gold German scrap,
inked edges, and metallic crayon finish off this atc.
Simple, maybe, but just the bit of "go make something"
I needed today!

Citrine, turquoise, and amethyst may be considered semi-
precious gems, but they're some of my favorites, and
still appropriate for the Gingersnap Creations Jewel
Colors Plus Gold challenge
.

Now back to "real life." Whatever that means . . .

By the way, I found a new-to-me mag at Wallie-world today called Flea Market Style. Have ya seen it? I think that's my house-decorating style! :)

It think this is lovely, and I love the color combination! I've drooled over the twinkling H2Os ever since they came out, but alas, no extra funds for such a splurge. But SkyBluePink.com has a "Niji Pearlescent Watercolor" paint set, you know with the little round dry paint discs. Only $6 for 21 colors - a decent inexpensive alternative. Love them! BeBe

So glad you found some time to play today, Art therapy is a must! I bet the shimmer IRL is beautiful, if anyone could find a way to make it show up on screen that would be awesome.
Beautiful Trisha, heres hoping for a better week.

Hi Trisha,
You were on my blog a while back and wanted to know what I used on the mirror on one of the cards. It is from Paper Whimsy and it is La Luna. When you order you get 6,3 with pin-backs and 3 without. Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I thought it was from one of the places that went out of business.
