Been Awhile!

Wow, it has been awhile since I posted anything!

I want to apologize that I have not been around commenting on blogs,
facebook or anywhere else!
I am still here! LOL
I have been sick since just after Thanksgiving...
got this crud that seems to stick in the chest and make you feel like you
are going to cough up a lung every few hours!
This post is going to be photo heavy!
I have actual been creating a few things that I could not
post about because they were Christmas presents.
Both were made using mirros, different types of mediums,
and of course all types of odd and ends....
Here is a 12 x 12 mirror that I made for my mom...
These are the flowers, cage, bird and swirls that I painted and spritzed.
I saned the mirror edges after taping one of my grand spellbinder sqyuare dies to the center.
The medium is the one with beads by liquitex. I added peach paint and decided it needed a lot more! SO I used Luminere paint, Donna Salazar ink pads, and distressed inks by Tim Holtz.

All of the diecuts and flowers have embossing powder to give them some shine.
These are the charms I added and of course the bottom
of the brid and cage that I cut out using the die from Sizzix and Tim Holtz.

The fence I die cut and glued together...added some sand with
gold glitter along the bottom to give even more dimension.

 Rather than show the one I made for Jenna on this same post
I will add it tomorrow!
Hope you had a fantastic holiday!
