I Am So Excited!

I am so excited to be on Lunagirl's first Design Team.  Lunagirl Vintage Images are wonderfully unique and I love working with them.  Karen, the owner of Lunagirl has a blog called Lunagirl Moonbeams.  The blog is for lovers of vintage Edwardian Victorian Retro Antique stuff.

The first projects of the Design Team is "Birds".  She has loads of bird images to choose from and below are the projects I created.
This is the wall hanging I made with three of the images.  I used a canvass board for my base and put  as the background some sheet music which I distressed by applying a watered-down coat of yellow acrylic paint.
Next I took a piece of my art journal page which I had made with a Gelli Plate.  I wasn't sure how to use my paper at first.  I finally decided to make slide mounts with it.  Inside the three mounts I placed images of 3 Lunagirl birds.

 I think the colors of the slide mounts really bring out the coloring of the images.

I finished off the wall hanging with an array of flowers at the bottom in the same color scheme as the slide mounts and birds.  Completing the wall hanging is some lace I had in my stash.
Below is a card I made using another Lunagirl image.  This bird is surrounded by a Cherry Lynn die.  Flowers are from Petaloo and above them is the sentiment "True Bliss" as an additional embellishment.
I do hope you will drop over for a visit as there are lots of great things planned for the blog.
