This Mini Altar was made for Tea. Just the thought of a tea house makes my mouth water. Oh the Teas, the food and the company. What more can you ask for? I love the tea cups and the tea pots. Just the atmosphere-now that is relaxation.
See how I made these Mini Altars with tutorials on Rubber Road Adventure. Just click on the RRA logo here on my blog. Make a cup of tea and enjoy the artwork.
This is a new fad for you to try. Mini Altars can be made to honor anything. I chose to remember a time that I was at the ocean-which I absolutely Love- and expanded on the lighthouses I have seen in the past. I stamped the lighthouse colored with markers and cut out in an oval. Glued to the brayered mini altar after adding a piece of textured vellum. See that small sailboat? It's a button and I am sailing it back to my lighthouse. Hence the handwritten "I Return to Thee". The shell is from Florida one of my favorite places to be and my birthplace. Smell that ocean-Ahhhh!
I want to fill everyone in on my last surgery for my cancer. Two weeks ago I had my last surgery relating to my double mastectomy in July of 2008. I had some large masses of extra flesh under my arms and towards my back. The doctor said he hadn't seen anything like this. They were removed and biopsied. I did not chose reconstruction. The biopsies are back and there is no cancer in the removed masses of flesh. The incisions are about six inches long on each side--and painful but healing well. I do not have to see the surgeon for another 6 months. Isn't God Good!! All the Time?
God is good all the time--All the time God is good.
My Girl is a stamp from CTMH. Ain't she sweet? Use a make-up sponge to add those triangle highlights to the right side. Stamp and cut out My Girl. Don't cut to close to her, leave an edge all the way around so she stands out and glue her on. Add a rectangle of Anna Griffins paper to the left side. Rip and Tear that last piece of pink striped paper from CTMH and glue it in the middle. Don't forget to add the bling!
Glad you are here to share a part of my life. My artwork and designs are such an important part of who I am. So the time has come to display a few of my projects with you.
