Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Time.....There just isn't enough...

time or money!


See, not having enough 'time' is on a lot of minds.

I started with a piece of designer paper (unknown) called Grunge and it
was in much bolder colors. I altered the color to an apricot. The money is
a Rupee note from Google Images and the watch is from
a collage sheet from Last Door Down the Hall. I used these stamps:
Woman, Scrolls Work and Swirl, Michaels Dollar Bin. I altered the
colors on the rupee and watch as well. The stamping is done with
a mix of black and silver. The last step was direct to paper distressing
with Coral chalk ink and Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Not much time or money to make this piece.

My piece

My mansion doesn't look much like the one given to us. Remember, it
has been 'abandoned' for years in a southern swamp with nothing
but 'gators and a heron or two watching over. The background paper
is from Ceremony where you will find beautiful artwork and freebies.

Hi Jeanette

Great work as usual. the mansion looks like the one from the Adam's family on the picture or the Munsters, not sure which one. It's stunning isn't it.
