Here's a bit of Eye Candy of some other projects
that I've been working on and are currently
floating all over Facebook!!! LOL!!!

It's my pleasure to introduce you to my latest project

'Oh Deer Aunt Alice'

LOL! As many of you know from my Blog and from Facebook, I have a great love for my local deer herd that I have been involved with for nearly 25 years:)
I have a wonderful relationship with generations of this herd, and have collected many fabulous photographs from face level which I tend to use in this 'Oh Deer' Series of my collages:)

Recently I also did a Journal Page using one of these photos

This is my Journal Page
'Oh Deer Tea Party'
(Grateful for the Graphics from both 
Graphics Fairy and Art Tea Life on Etsy 
and Graphics 45 Papers too!:)

The story goes.....
Ophelia, is Aunt Alice's Spinster Daughter,
who will never marry 
but likes to wear a wedding dress 
whenever possible....LOL!

I have been accused on Facebook, that this is probably
a representation of my home! Darn close!!! LOL!

As you can see from this picture, I've been hosting 
tea parties for a very long time!! LOL!!!

I've also been accused and it was predicted back in December,
 (by one who will remain nameless....ok, won't 
Kristin Hubick!!! LOL), 
that when my Husband purchased this 
Fabulous Glass topped Drafting Table for me 
for Birthday and Christmas, that it
wouldn't take long to clutter it......

I am publicly acknowledging that 
was correct!!! LOL!
Well at least the mess is organized!!!!
(That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

Being that this is one corner of my art room...I'm not
showing the rest of the mess!! LOL!

Well there ya go!!!
So here's to seeing you all tomorrow for the 
Tutorial Post for Shabby Cottage Studios!!

And in the meantime.....

'Make Life Your Own
Tea Party'
