I've gone and done it!








I've been saying I wouldn't do this, didn't have the time, energy, art, etc. However, I've been rethinking my reasons and have concluded that having one would probably be infinitely easier than loading my artwork in numerous galleries unless doing so for a specific reason. Just sharing can now be done globally in one place. Whew! But, something tells me that I'll still end up adding my pics to all the groups I belong to anyway. Oh well.



I know I won't have any time to create anything before the new year begins (what happened to the old one????) so I'll share my latest creation with you. It's sure to brighten your day (it's dazzling with the lights shining on it!) with it's bling-yness. I got the inspiration from my friend Lori's blog (I Been Thinkin' About Inkin').



My 11" wreath is full of glitz and glam. The stamps are all from Wendy Vecchi's collections. I also used a Sizzix die, paper clip flower, bottle caps, buttons, Ranger Distress Inks, Ranger Paint Dabbers, Ranger Stickles, Ranger alcohol inks, wire, beads, lots of adhesive, foil, chipboard, cardboard, wired ribbon, grungepaper and grungeboard (Tim Holtz), adhesive-backed foil, and metallic paper and a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Divine Swirls). The first pic I took without using the flash so you could see the actual colors better. The 2nd one was with the flash so you could see the dazzle.
