Claudia Neubacher of Our Creative Corner has given us a beautiful collage photo to work with for the September Challenge. I love anything to do with nature. Thanks Claudia.
This inspirational collage was just what I had in mind when I saw this photo of my daughter Alicia. She is my nature Girl. She lives with her husband Abe (the Forrester) and two beautiful children in their mountain home surrounded by nature. Awww the country life is sweet!

I love finding new way to decorate these little metal tins. This time I took a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" two piece metal tin and created a patina aged look with gesso and paint. First I used black Gesso all over the tin inside and out. I then took the acrylic paint in two tones of blue and blue green and mixed each color into gesso until I liked the way the colors looked. I painted on many layers with this mixture and then crackle paint in between the layers. Fun textured look don't you think?
The embellishments were painted in the same way. In the next step I went slightly over anything with gold rub n buff. The inside of the tin only had black Gesso and rub n buff. I also added paper that I distress and inked.
Thank you for peeking in,
Hugs from Laurie Moore

This layout is of my two grand kids ages 3 and 4 years old. They had not seen each other in over a year and when they did they run to each other and hugged and hugged. It was so heart warming.
I took a few white flowers and used the same sprays to color the flowers. I then added layers of papers, a wooden fence, metal birdcage, leaves and for a special touch a birds nest and eggs for my two sweet chickadees, my grand-kids. .
