 It's a little hard to see, but there was this cute kitty paper I left exposed on this tag.  I really like the roughness that the top layer leaves.
All these projects were done with the layering technique I posted about yesterday.  This is a mini-book.  Left page says:  "Therefore if the Son makes you free you shall be free indeed."  John 8:36

This and the following cards are "Fat Book" pages I did for a swap.  I just like birds.

A post card that was mailed off and never made destination.  I guess someone along the way wanted it for their collection.

This and the following are again "Fat Book" pages made for a swap.

Yesterdays posting has a link for instructions on making "fabric-paper." Thanks for stopping by.

How pretty! Your artist's eye always amazes me. Last night at church we decorated yams for our annual "Yamboree" in Gilmer. I needed some of your artist talents as we decorated yams to portray the nativity. I had three little boys working on wisemen! We even have a star from a potato...we'll see if Joe and I get them to stand up on the board for the contest! Thanks for all your beautiful work and your witness to so many!

You made me laugh so hard I choked on my ice water!!! I just assumed everyone knew about cranberry bogs! SO FUNNY!

LOVE THESE MINIS! I like to make small things to slip in E's purse or Greg's briefcase. It is wonderful when it's something you created yourself...means more!
Thanks for the inspiration!
Have a fantastic Lord's Day!!

Gio, thanks for stopping by and the encouragement. So appreciated.

Coleen said...

Thanks, Mardi. The vellum was burned around the edges to finish it off. I liked the effect.

Coleen said...

Ava, doing is how you exercise that artist's eye. It really is a matter of practice. Loved hearing from you.

Coleen said...

Bless your heart, Sarah. I know you are one busy mom. You might want to see my Pinterest board "Kids, Crafting and More" at www.pinterest.com/coleenfranks

Coleen said...

Great idea, Ronda. I used to do that with my kids too. And when Jeff travels, but haven't in a long time. Good to be reminded. Now I send my kids and grandkids goodie packages thru the mail.

Oh I just love ALL of these pages. You don't have to have a reason to love birds...and I'm glad you do!

Coleen said...

Thanks, annie! You are always an encourager. I wish I had your talent with the sewing machine.

Coleen said...

Thanks for stopping by, Fotini. I really like working with the tissue and napkins. Gives such intense texture.
