Relax And Let It Flow Out

Today I just wanted to share a card that I made while relaxing in between moments of chaos. lol  I had this card laying on my desk this morning and my daughter came in and asked "can this be framed"?  I figured she wanted it for her new apartment that she will be moving into in 1 week, (that means 2 less adults in my house).  I was very pleased that she wanted my artwork on her walls since she is a adult and her taste is different than mine!  I will get a shadow box for it and use Maja papers for the background and then bring it over AFTER she is done unloading her boxes! 

I used Maja "Vintage Summer Basics for my papers and the post card.  I love this set so much.  I wanted to create something that I did not have to think or perform, you know just let it happen.  I used a card from Pion design of a vintage lady and then let my mind flow.

My flowers, feathers and beads are on top of the Magnolia Peony die.

Here is a closer look of one of the post cards in the back of this paper pack, I made everything with distressed edges, sometimes a bit too much.

Here is the Pion image I used and some gorgeous lace, makes a easy card if the image is already done.

I was given 2 of these sweet Cherubs by a friend and my daughter asked if my last one could go onto her card base. I let her have it because I will see it again. This is therapy for my hoarding problem, letting crafty items go. lol  

I had just purchased the Prima chipboard and I loved this You & Me word so I Frantaged it with Shabby Pink and let it heat up and melt longer than usual.  I watched the Frantage move around the chipboard until I was happy with it, it looks lined.

Thank you for stopping by my blog as your comments make me smile.  Stay warm and healthy!!
Hugs Kelly
