Carina from Finland- Feel like a million

Big envelope arrived today 27x18cm with a lovely artwork inside. My first one from Carina Granlund. She wrote that this piece is "an easy peasy technique in etching," and it was put in her graphic press. Nice one Carina. This has beautiful details, from stitching, drawing and kind of almost perforated…

Kookaburra - from Vizma Bruns

This is my first card from Vizma, and I am absolutely thrilled. Kookaburra, you sure got me googling, Vizma. Just like the chimpanzee on your card, I am a very slow creature. And I very often cannot find things that are right in front of my eyes. True story! In any case, this a great collage. And…

Red Car water color from Debbie Clandening by Golly

A lot going on in this water colour from Debbie Clandening by Golly.  Notice all the items of temptation are in red; the red sports car, the red apples & the red door to by Golly's home.  Is it true that the real Garden of Eden is found in Canada?

Thank you very much Debbie, and my guess that the guy in the red sports car isn't taking the long way to the by Golly home.…
