Destination Unknown and an announcement…..

First off the announcement…

I'm super excited to announce that I have been chosen as one of the 
Design Team members for
I can't wait to start my term as I probably fall into the 
title more than I can to admit.

I hope that you will soon be joining me and the other designers
Gloria Stengel - Blog Owner
as we slowly but surely bust through our stash.

and now…
Onto today's share
This is my oldest riding bikes in Kiawah.
I took the photo as I was also riding a bike, trying to balance,
AND snap a photo.
I was just messing around with this layout. No specific reason as
to why it's done.
The base paper is from Teresa Collins.
Some vintage papers, sewing pattern and canvas strips were 
applied randomly across it then swiped with a credit card full of Gesso.
As the Gesso was drying I misted it with several colors from both
Lindy's Stamp Gang and Tattered Angels.

Once it was all dry I did some random stamping with stamps
from Prima and Hero Arts using Archival ink.

The flowers were all from the box where I throw leftovers from packages
The white crotched doilies under the photo are from Prima.

Each of the flowers received some bling in the center using up another
half open package.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!
