One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Back to ancient Rome and Painting Fresco Style

Going back to the beginning where it all started...
Ancient Rome and doing some painting Fresco Style!
This is one of the first flowers in the Botanical Blocks...the sweet rose!
We spread embossing paste all over the page and waited for it to dry, then painted it with watercolors.  Okay, so if you read my last post, you read about my "misplaced" mosaic pieces and how we laughed till our tummies hurt (or had tears running down our legs!!)!  Now I have to tell you about one of Linda's funny stories...So yesterday she spread the embossing paste all over her paper...set it aside to dry.  She started painting it and finished the whole thing....when she was getting ready to adhere it to a card, she thought the back was sure rough....can you guess?  She painted the smooth side of the card, NOT the pastey side at all!  What a doofus!
Okay, now we both have funny memories to recall ... if we remember them that is!!
This is the peony from the Botanical Blocks II
The pattern paper on both cards is from the Ancient Rome Kit.
Linda and I still need to do the 1960's and the 1980' much to do so little time to do it!!
