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.


  1. Lisa, that rusty garden gate just pops right off the page. Well done! I'm sure your mother loves it. Happy week!

  2. This is such a fun and interactive piece. Stunning

  3. Wow, this is amazing, Lisa! I'm sure your mother loved it. If I got something like this, it would make me cry (happy tears). :)
