Once again she wondered

….why she sticked around.

That sentence came to mind when I found this vintage photo at a flea market.

It really cracked me up and made me wonder, what this woman was thinking about when the photos was taken. Was she annoyed by the photographer? Anyway- LOL – I made the story up and this is my project for the Tattered Angels Booth using their new Product Line Plain Jane: Baseboard, Simply Sheer and Stained Glass and all of the four “old” paint products: Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Mist Chalkboard, Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam

Other than the Tattered Angels Paint Media I used some awesome products of the Color Connection Companies: Prima Marketing, Pink Paislee and Canvas Corp. It was fun mixing it all.

I love working with burlap . The rawness of this material ist just so cool!

and of course I love texture 🙂

mixed media to the brim —-

Wishing you an amazing day!





  1. Love it! The frame is amazing and I love the tree and gorgeous colors on the bird.

  2. Love your work, you are such an inspiration!
    I love how you use different textures… and all the wonderful colors.
    Thank you for sharing.

  3. A great lay out that speaks volumes about the photo. What did you use to create the textured tree?

  4. Hi Sue, yes – it is one of the Prima Frames and I sprayed it with the new Baseboard by Tattered Angels.

  5. I see why you bought that vintage photo! Love it. Since they had to hold the pose for so long back then, they usually have pretty interesting faces.

  6. I’m such a fool for colors and this gorgeous piece has me suckered all over it 🙂 !
