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.

Cherry Blossom by Sherri Baldy Art

Hello!  I'm squeezing under the wire with this one.  Since I bought this one I won the gift certificate given by the Hoosier Stamper and was able to get 8 more Sherri Baldy digis.  I'm having fun!!!

The Besties Challenge #7 requires 2 kinds of patterned paper.  Originally there was a patterned paper under Cherry Blossom but she was just the right size to cover it up.  Then, I realized that I used patterned papers in the embellishments, too.  The branches on the sides (I think of them as Japanese maple) are made from a patterned woodgrain paper and the leaves are also from a red pattern I found in my stash.  The Kanji word for Beauty (cut from Cricut's Pagoda cartridge) is also from patterned paper.  I colored her with distress markers.  Here she is:

I think she's a sweetheart.
Go to the Besties Challenge to see all the entries and have fun creating.
