This page is done! I'm happy! I can get this in the mail. This page was created by gluing different scrapbook papers and vintage text on the house shape. I used my blending tool to add the Faded Jeans and Walnut Stain distress inks. I over stamped with my Acanthus stamp and embossed with gold detail embossing powder.
The Marie image is from the Catnip Designs "Let Them Eat Cake" collage sheet. I put the image in a gold oval frame German scrap. It is highlighted by gold ivy German scrap. The text is from the same collage sheet and I added a small gold crown to the text.
This page is pretty plain and honestly, it didn't turn out like I planned. My muse left me in the middle of creating this page. ACK!

I love these new religious icon beads that I just got in stock. I wanted to make something with them. Never mind that I don't know how to make jewelry. I can try and besides, this is just for me. I have a few beads and some Stretch Magic, so I went to work! It's a little big. I have these tiny stick-like wrists (and that's the only thing that's tiny about me). I like this! It's colorful and fun. Some plain silver beads would probably look better than the beads I used between the religious icon beads, but I didn't have any. These religious icon beads will be available for purchase at Collage Stuff this weekend. I'd love to see what someone that knows how to make jewelry can do with these beads.
