This photo of my son's girlfriend was taken with an underwater camera,the dots on it are air bubbles.

 She has a great sense of humor, and so does my son. They're really cute together, goofing around, and making jokes.  

I made this page using the beautiful Scraps of Elegance August kit,Mallika's Whimsy.

I took a metal cookie tin, and wrapped floral wire around it three times, then took it off, and tied it with more wire, to keep it a circle. I wrapped floral tape around it.  I did this three times, then cut each circle, and wrapped the 3 pieces around each other.

I painted the wreath shape with gesso, then applied glitter glue, flowers, blue and gold lumieres, and frosted mica flakes from Prima.

The photo is on a piece of watercolor paper, painted with a mix of Twinkling H20s and Lindy's Stamp Gang. The blue flowers are made with tracing paper and a Sizzlits die, tattered flower garland.  I put them in a puddle of lindy's stamp gang, then heat dried them.

I strung the beads with a fine needle and black thread.  With the needle I poked through a big pile of the beads held in the palm of my hand.  It goes pretty quickly.

I painted the chipboard by Blue Fern with Lindy's Stamp Gang.

I brushed the tiny Vintaj metal word pieces with some gold mica powder, however, it doesn't show up well in the photos.

Thanks for looking!
