Sleep Makes All Faces Golden : Mixed Media Card
I finally feel like gold after a few nights of uninterrupted sleep. It is amazing how a break in the REM cycle can make all the difference between a grouchy mama and a sweet mama. I usually pack a lot into my week and then ponder over it when I lay my head down to sleep. I have a brain that never seems to shut off. I think this meme describes it perfectly.
That extra sleep is due mostly to the recovery of my sinus infection. It is nice to be able to breath again when in the supine position. I am still getting hives on a daily basis, but thankfully they no longer cause the swelling of my extremities. I am unsure of the cause but I think my sinus infection triggered it.
Needless to say, I am feeling fabulous now that I can resume my normal routine!
Creating the Card
For the base of the card, I added a layer of paper bag onto which I stamped and sprayed. Next, I added a sheet of old book paper, tissue paper, washi tape and thread. My main image is a PaperArtsy image by Lynne Perrella. I embossed it in gold and painted the background with Dyan Reavely paints.
Since today is tea day, I am sharing my Maui Mango Herbal Tea, all set to be steeped in the strainer. I usually give it about 5 minutes to infuse the full mango flavor. Isn’t it pretty?
I am playing along with all the wonderful ladies for T-Day over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard‘s.
Happy Tea Day,
