GPP Crusade #51 Home Sweet Home

I finally got the assignment done this month! Yay! I have been unable to participate much after my neck surgery. The plan I have is to catch up, however, I smacked my head getting in the car the other day and am back in my neck brace until I can give the Dr. a call on Tues. My neck doesn't realy hurt but I have been pretty nausious. I did hear a loud crack witch had me concerned. I still have full mobility and since I'm not in pain, I'm pretty sure It can wait till after the holiday weekend. I wore my neck brece all day yesterday and feel pretty good today. I'm still using it most of the time though.
Ok, back to the artwork. I did some water solvable pastels in the background. I spritzed over the top with some glimmer mists to give it some sparkle. I had previously stamped the robin and masked it. The robin is a new stamp from After Midnight Art Stamps. I love it. It is a nice large size that made it realy fun to color for me. I love to do alot of blending and playing with the colors. "Let Hartman Feather Your Nest" is from a vintage card that I made a copy of. The word home and the window are from Green Pepper Press. The flowers are from Bombshell Stamps and the curly bird arrow and dot border are from Inque Botique. The word Home in the title is a stencil and the flower design is from the crusade where we did monoprinting. I cut the design with my Spellbinders scalloped circles. The crossword puzzle is from an old newspaper.

New Jewelry in my Artfire store!!!

These are just a few of the new items that are either already listed or will be listed hopefully by friday at the latest. I have a few new things that haven't even been taken pictures yet. So much work to do. I am also checking out a few local consignment shops to see if they would be interested in carring some of my items. I hope you enjoy the new jewelry.
