The Year of the Goat
|Linking up with Art Journal Journey~ Birds,Beasts & Humans|
Today I am sharing a piece that I made for my post over at Altered Pages- my date to post fell perfect on the Chinese New Year celebration!
I started with a piece of hardboard and covered it with Asian Papers from Altered Pages.com
Next I gave them color using Distress Inks and Stains
Here I am auditioning my papers to decide on my layout
I have stamped out a few of the fans from the multi stamp and fancy-cut them
Ahhh, a favorite part...adding glitter and beads-
For the hanger, I used a kitchen skewer and wrapped my vintage lace around it and glued it to the back of the board, using clips to hold in place overnight
A few more details added-microbeads in the flower centers and glitter glue on the red flowers
And the last detail, a lucky cat charm hanging from the lace!
Thank you so much for your visit
I do hope I inspired you to create something today!

It is with regret,that I share some sad news with you today
The mixed media art world has lost a wonderfully gifted , talented and beautiful art sister this week~
JoAnna Pierotti of Moss Hill Studio is resting peacefully now after her long battle with cancer.
For those of you who know of Joanna,or been fortunate enough as I to take one of her classes know what a cleverly kind soul she was and how beautiful her fiber art as well as many other creative pieces are. A very caring, generous woman, who was very brave and fought hard.
We will miss you, JoAnna ,sleep peacefully
~ sending out prayers of healing and wishes of peace to her family and friends
