You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Runway Inspired Challenge ric#3/Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Something New/ Cooking w/ Cricut

This was the inspiration photo .

I saw the card that Jennifer Rzasa of Our Change of Art made and that's how I found this challenge.  This one really caught my fancy.  I love the visual texture the stripes make as the fabric folds different ways.  That was my inspiration for this.  I wanted some 3D shaping to play with the stripes.
Believe it or not, the glitter glue I used was CLEAR and that is black paper.  I couldn't believe my eyes.  Who would've thought?  It was fun planning and making this card.

I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and
Cooking with Cricut Challenge #67  The sentiment is the only stamped element; the colored pearls are a new item for me.  I found packs of various colors in a clearance display and now I love using them as accents.  The cricut cuts are the flower center from Forever Young and the stem and leaves from Picturesque.

Happy creating!
