Those of you who know me well know that I LOVE the artwork of Kelly Rae Roberts and Sharon Tomlinson. I find their art whimsically inspirational.

Well, Kelly recently posted some ADORABLE necklaces featuring her fun "ladies" and inspirational messages. Lovely! And yes, I oogled.

I came home from CHA with a Necklace created with Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Paints and Sticky-Back Canvas -- very sweet on its own but I wanted to "Karen it up". Out came more paints and a black pen and with a brain channelling Kelly and Sharon -- this is what I did.

See, I have been practicing my faces. I am finding the smaller they are, the more difficult... but I like this little gal... She's supposed me - Is there a resemblance? hehe The butterfly is something I cut out of a napkin and adhered with Matte Medium. The letters that spell the word "create" where cut out of an old catalogue. Reuse and Recycle when you can my friends. I did ink the edges and adhered them with Matte Medium as well. It's all good -- at least I think so :)

Can't wait to wear this when I am at the studio!

I am loving the Ranger Memory Frames (which is what I framed this in *as part of the original CHA make n take*) I am SURE you will see more creations using them. Got the whole line coming in... Memory frames in different sizes, frosted and clear glass, memory capsules that fit them, yep the whole line. Play Play Play!


A Side Note: Check back tomorrow. I have been creating some fun cards for the next couple of cookouts... I'll post some tomorrow for you to see!
