I made the handmade papers, for the tag, pocket and snowflake I added all the tiny embellishments. I created the button out of polymer clay. This is the front of the pocket and the front of the tag. I LOVE TAGS. Join my tag group at YAHOO if you like RAK's, SWAPs & TRADES of CREATIVE tags and Collage.
The front of the card I made for my Mother in law for her 70th birthday. Much of the front of this card was from items recieved in Sam's swap. But the ribbons are the silks that i dye. You can see more of my silk ribbons at . I Would love MORE images like that lady, esp in sepia tones! I love vintage images, and vintage angels.
Here is the inside of a Birthday card I made from my mother in law. The tea bag is inside a pocket of my own hand made papers. The Poem follows in next post. copyrighted Grace Brunelle 2005

I wrote the Poem inside the card

Poem inside the card I made from many of the swap items I recieved. I love the woman on the cover and would love to find more "gibson" girl images! copyrighted Grace Brunelle 2005

The Bridge Painting over the altar. Here you can see the Bridge, along with the Hands of God Sculpture that Robert made. The shiny hoops are called " Glory Hoops" we use them in liturgical and messianic dance. The Cloth on the altar is a Tallit, with 2 large yemenite shofar that we blow during services. I thought you might like to see His painting in its setting.

BRIDGE for the Cambridge United Church Altar. I LOVE this painting. Rob prayed all through it's painting. It is 6 feet x 3 feet and Many people have said they feel the touch of God on it. It has a great deal of meaning.. and is very wonderful to contemplate!

NIGHT,, ( SHHH!!) Robert does not know i posted this.. I Love this painting.. We have a funny thing in our marriage.. Sometimes He creates a work and I never get to see it until it hangs on the gallery wall. One time, I saw a painting i absolutely loved for the first time with a sold sticker on it, and the folks never let us get a picture of the painting. But i LOVE the Moon in this one.. it sort of reminds me of the autumn evenings when Robert and I first met, and kissed under the stars.( almost 22 year ago!)

More Recycled and inclusions papers hanging to dry. I love using the Heavy Duty handiwipes, gives a nice finish to the paper. Pulp picks up the texture of whatever it dries on. I put the stack of wet papers in an antique iron bookbinders press to really press it. From the right we have rose petals and the dictionary words for love, then copper inclusions with scraps of peach paper, then adding in birch tree bark.
