Vintage beauty

Handmade ATC ACEO card with vintage lady and poetry by Ingeborg van Zuiden
Dear reader,

Tuesday blue day, haha😎. Here is one of my latest creative splashes: a handmade artist trading card with this beautiful lady from the past. I found this old poetry piece of paper that I thought matched this card perfectly. This is the little poem:

All sweet and holy dreams seem blent
within thy maiden heart
how delicate in every look
in every thought thou art

It reflects the way my personal creative flow goes and feels somewhat. I love it! I hope you like this little piece of eyecandy for today! May it find you well! Have a magnificent day and enjoy!

I see green

Hi there!

Do you see green? I see green! No, not green with envy 😋. I don't know what that is!😕 I truly don't know what being envious or what envy is. I consider it something of the dark side. I only know of the saying 'green with envy'. What green has to do with being envious......... I don't know! It's certainly not a very 'neutral' feeling when you compare it to the meaning of the color green! I have met lots of envious people on my trail of life. So I do know from bitter experience what envy means, but me, myself and I do not know how it feels to be 'green with envy', thank God! I love the color green nevertheless. I need lots of green around me! It's a magical color! It stands for life, I think.

Anyway......... where was I............ oh yes, I was going to show off some green themed earrings I made. Do you see those big green beads with the little mirros and the bling on it? Those are so cool! They are named 'Kashmiri beads' and are handmade. They are gorgeous, aren't they? I hope you enjoy my little green bling tour for today and feel inspired by this gorgeous color!

My Queen Muse

Handmade ATC ACEO card with Marie-Antoinette muse
Dear reader,

Today I'd like to share this Artist Trading Card/ACEO I made recently. And again....... all the needed materials were on hand on and around my craftdesk! Just like I told you in another blogpost, my creator used my hands to guid me to the right materials and so this pretty muse card was born. I love love love the peacock green gems. They are from the Prima brand. I'm a magpie when it comes to gems, haha. I just love those! It is so much fun to create these little art cards! I've made a ton of them already and you can view them all in my portfolio on Flickr and scroll down on that page and you will find the ATC/ACEO cards in different albums sorted on color. I hope you like my Queen Muse!

Have a wonderful day!
