how was your day? here with me is a great summer – I use every opportunity to wander with my child in parks and gardens and being outdoors.. we found a wonderful, secret place in the churchyard – a beautiful garden with many beautiful flowers and fountains, with a wonderful playground, peaceful location. really is like a piece of Eden! Boromir and I love to play there – it is hard to believe that the center of the big, noisy city is such a magical place hidden i was little worried to take pictures because i thought it would be a manifestation of ‘secula’vanity` to shoot` there – somehow, it is ‘holy ground’ and might be acceptable to take photographs.) but it is really nice – our secret place where my child plays quiet, but I can gather my thoughts…
to say that the card that will show you shortly, it is inspired by our ‘secret garden’. here she is:
with this project i will play in CCCB – week 64 – birds of a feather
here’s some more photos and details
whenever i work with this beautiful stamp of `hero arts`, i am tempted to add lots of flowers and decorations in the project. lately my cards are full of flowersq but im just in love in these tiny roses! i wanted this card to recreate the feeling of beauty and harmony.
i do not know whether you see the picture clear enough, but i reinforced the colors of roses with liquid pearls of Tim Holtz. `magic ‘here is that i added to the pearl a drop of baby oil, diluted with hot water, so i got very delicate shade of base color and roses glowed…
furthermore, i decided it would be a good idea to reinforce the leaves of roses with red ink – it looks almost like a real garden roses.
little blue sparrow is made with mini Prima-stamp. i like to add my favorite buttons and hand-made hat pins to my cards – (i found wonderful beads in local smallwares, and have fun while doing great pins. ) my hubby said that this frame looks very ‘fantasy’, from a tale of kings and queens – in his opinion, the bird looks like a crest, pin looks like a sword, a knob like a knightly shield. what to tell you, my beloved is very imaginative person, great fan of Shanara and LOTR, so that this association does not surprise me the least bit. 😀
so far from me, my dears! i hope you enjoy my card. and thank you for your patience to read this long entry! 😀
iwish you a wonderful summer and a lot of harmony!
