Past the garden gate
This started out as a card to represent my Mother's garden and it sort of grew and grew. Finally I just used a 6x8" canvas board so instead of a Mother's Day card, I did a small art piece for my mother. I'm playing with some techniques from Christy Tomlinson's Behind the Art class.
First though, I cut the garden gates with my Cricut and the Storybook cartridge. It was one image and I split it and then added Versamark in spots and embossed with copper powder for a rusty gate look.
The 'garden' is mostly flowers cut from Basic Grey's PB&J 6x6 pad which I think is almost used up. That was a really good one! The background is really techniques from our art class with papers, paints, a ton of Modge Podge, stencils and a few stamps.
Hope you have a happy Mother's Day. I'll be back in a couple of days with a new page and video.
