I had a hard day yesterday

First let me say thanks to all who responded to help me with the collage sheets, I am going to go over what you all have said and report back, a big thank you!

We bought a fixer upper a few years ago and just starting to do major work. I am so excited about this but do not do well in a chaotic atmosphere! We got a new roof put on our house, Yay! But for three days I heard pounding, banging, yelling and my dog barking all day! A piece of plaster fell down from all the banging on the roof just missing my head! I am used to peace and quiet! So I didn't get any work done. But the end result of a new roof in so worth it!

It has been storming here in N Florida and yesterday my studio flooded! Luckily anything that was on the floor was in plastic so nothing that I can see got damaged.

Yahoo was having a tantrum yesterday and I could barely read my email or send any out!

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy!
xxoo Astrid

Laura's Deco

I have been working on Laura's deco called "Inspiration" So here's a couple of pages. Done with Rubber stamps and watercolor, H2o's and die cuts. These represent my many moods as an artist.

This page is for Gail

I have been sooo busy but managed to do a page for a swap I am in. It's a book on Friendship. The background is stamped and handcolored and then collaged border with napkin print, added some large flowers from a card, wings are those copper foil German Scrap which I antiqued and the angel is a pop up. xxoo Astrid
