Art Me Soulfully Tin Swap/Hearts

So I've been working at times on my tin for the Art Me Soulfully swap. I have until the 23rd to tinker with it, but this is what I have so far.  In this moment, it feels complete to me, but perhaps I'll add more?

Rubbermoon Post: All Things Magic

The Frog Prince Ralph returns to weave magic and mayhem, perhaps even call down this week's Valentine's Day full moon!

A well-loved image, a handful of paper scraps, German scrap, a bit of silvery Distress Stain and a scattering of stars is all takes to put this piece together.  On a black ATC back, I drew Distress Stain across the sky.  A bit of cloud fluff at night, maybe the northern lights?

The trees are cut from a die.  They had worked their way into paper scrap box after winter holidays.  Patterned paper forms a grassy hill on which Ralph conjures up the stars.

Rubbermoon Post: Goddess Speak

This day that began and ended in sun became a day for Rubbermoon play!  Here's my Goddess arch.  Its February 2nd creation gave me change to ponder the ancient celebration of Imbolc, and enjoy the rays of brilliant winter sun.

Maybe I was a little inspired by the candle I lit in the morning?  But equally inspired by Goddess, an image I add often to envelopes, mail art, letters, etc.  This time, she became the focal point of my arch.  This is the first time I've ever layered an arch in such fashion - off kilter - but it allowed me to add German scrap for trim and various embellishments to the edges.  I also added Inksplat to the background of the top two layers of arch.

As with goddess, I embossed Ma'am in the Moon and the circle around her, also a Rubbermoon image.  Copics were used to color this.
As it begins, so it ends.  Here's the view of the setting sun out my window.  Enjoy!
