A key chain....could be a cute Christmas gift
 
Mount this little guy on several layer of chipboard the same size as the ephemera. Ink all the edges, punch with a big chomp or other heavy duty hole punch, add a ring.   Give it a coat or two of Mod Podge
 
 
 
A scrapbook page!
 
A school trip to the Oil Ranch...hard to get on paper, why not
make some inked tags with some country bulk and farm type trim.
Yep, works really good! 
 
 
 
 
Turn this one into a Christmas card!
The colors are Christmas
so we can use it to design a unique cad.......
frame the piece with black, pit on a scalloped red background
use a Christmas paper as the backing, add
a Christmas tag, no fuss and so cute! 
 
 
 
 

                         A book mark that really holds the page!

Scored the top three inches, stamped embossed and added a trim on the outside, inside added trim to peek out, rounded the corners and added some cute little guy, mounted on a smidge of black.  Another cute little gift!



 
Farmers Market as a greeting card
My favorite image, it is so me.
I just kept mounting the image on   coordinating scraps of paper until it was trimmed in the maroon, mount on trendy craft paper.   Secure some long strip of burlap with a creamy colored flower with a golden colored brad running through  it!
Suitable for any find of occasion!
 
 
 
 

                                  Farmers Market as an art piece...can you tell which one is my favorite! Mount the image with a cranberry/maroon color.  Tale a small canvas, paint the background with some blue green acrylic paint.  I then painted some flowers with yellows and white on the left (I am really not very good at painting on canvas but I am trying to learn and  it is fun to experiment with different things).  I found some burlap that had a very different look, very loose ends and gave a grassy look to it.  Use double sides tape to place it, there is actually a ribbon in the center of the burlap. attached with double sided tape, then my image placed at an angle.  I had some of the pretty flowers in the maroon and yellow, added them with a crystal center to each.  I found a little weathered easel and my creation gives me lots of joy!

Hope you enjoyed....leave me a comment....
