Happy Beltane, Believers! :) Here's my Gothic Arch ATC for the TGIF challenge. I just felt like stamping tonight, so no intricate cutting of collage images. Just me, some cardstock, and images from Cherry Pie and 100 Proof Press. Enjoy the magic of May!

At the Beach

Last summer I got to spend a long weekend with a very good old friend and his partner at the beach. We went to Ocean Shores, Washington. Now, Sitka has lots of coastline, much of it rocky, but there's just something magical about big waves, endless sandy stretches of beach, and the chance to catch up with an old friend. It was quite a peaceful weekend. I put together this little 5x5 canvas with that friend and that beach in mind for this week's MMM challenge. The little shell fragment is actually from a sand dollar I found there. I also tried my hand at using wax around the border of my canvas. There are golden flakes of UTEE here and there, much like the found treasures that are gathered from beach trips. Summer is coming! :)

Mermaid is the challenge this week for MMM. I knew I was holding on to my mermaid collage sheet from Altered Pages for a special reason/moment. Using it and a handful of cards from the former card catalog at our local library, I put together this little altered mermaid book. In all there are five pages with lots of paint and ink and stamped images and glitter, of course, and even a few little sea charms (bead, shell and mermaid holding a star) tangled up in the fibers. Each library card pertains to National Geographic, photography, and storytelling. This is going to be used for my next letter to Liisa in France as I left the back of each card blank.
