Blog Hop just a note

Well its been a while since I played along with the PTI blog Hop

I loved the inspiration pic so I just HAD to play along!

I kept it super simple by just swiping the inks across the paper, then I added a simple black sentiment..

Happy Hoppin, thanks for peekin'

playin' around


Saturday I spent some time with Karen at the Art House..

we were at an auction this past week and picked up some antique frames

now they were pretty rough (I wish I did a before shot)

So a couple coats of krylon, some Claudine Helmuth and pretty fabric later, this is what I ended up with

Its actually really big-- like 32x22

Thanks for peekin'
