My First Challenge


Well, I did it, with over an hour before midnight! I used a card from a deck of zodiac illustrations, cut it into an arch, and covered it with bright tangerine nylon organza. I found a picture of a gypsy, made a photo transfer with matte medium (thank you Lesley Riley!) added some fibers, a ribbon, some trim and a sun button. Thanks Patty for inspiring me to try a challenge... I can tell I will love them from now on. A little intimidating at first, but, by golly, I can do this! And thank you Gothic Arches for the challenge!

Hi Kim...

THANK SO MUCH for visiting my blog and for your comment. I am glad to find a fellow winter lover out there. We actually had three inches last night of fresh powder. It is so beautiful to look out on the landscape and see the pretty white scene.

warmly,
Tracie Lyn
