Mixed Media Monday - Enchanted

This is my entry for Mixed Media Monday. The theme is 'Enchanted.' I stamped under and on the patterned vellum and added some Stickles to the images. The quote is from Quietfire Designs and the image was a freebie from The Lady's Closet. Thanks for looking - cheers!

Gothic Arches - Paris Exposition

The challenge for Gothic Arches this week is "Paris Exposition." I love the romance of Paris. The Eiffel Tower was built for the World's Fair in 1900. Did you know that it was originally destined to be dismantled after twenty years? Fortunately it was so well engineered that it has lasted the ages. Also, it was discovered that it could be used for radio transmission and this was a big factor for saving it - my husband is an amateur radio operator and he was happy to hear this little known fact! Do check out the fabulous entries on Gothic Arches - such talented people out there! Cheers!

Mixed Media Monday

The challenge on Mixed Media Monday is "What was she thinking?" Firstly I thought this woman had a very wistful expression, so I wondered what she was thinking? Secondly, when I went to decorate my February calendar I reached for the wrong inks and as soon as the first stamp hit the paper I had one of those, "what was I thinking?!" then I was committed! Anyway, all in all this was perfect for the theme. Cheers!
