Celestial Light

I recently joined ClubCreative, a yahoo group. It is described as "a cozy place to create and swap art, share thoughts and feel at home. high quality artists only." Imagine my surprise when when of my favorite collage artists asked me to pinch hit in a swap that was hosted by this group! So, I joined up, and now have the opportunity to sign up for swaps.

So, I signed up for the ATC swap "Phrases from books." The quote on this card is from Longfellow's Evangeline. I found the photo on the internet. Somehow the gypsy just seems to fit this quote. The colors for the ATC card was inspired by the With One Palette artist Jeannine Peregrine in this month's issue of Somerset Studio. She used tangerine,orange, aqua and berry colors. I just love how they look together. The orange worked perfectly for the light in the quote. The woman in the picture is wearing a necklace, so I stopped by a local bead shop and picked up these teeny, tiny glass sead beads. What a pain to string, but I love the way they look on her, don't you?

Enjoy!
