Sunshine by Denise van Deventer

Hello Everyone!

Today it's my turn - Denise - to share the Luck of the Irish - Sunshine with you.

Just to remind you, here is Cathi's board for this theme.

Here is my take on it.

The wording is an Irish Blessing.

For each petal on the shamrock
Good Health, Good Luck and happiness
This brings a wish your way
For today and everyday

I have a little poem tucked into the little folder which is also an Irish blessing.

May your joys be as deep as the oceans
Your troubles as light as it's foam
And may you find sweet peace of mind
Wherever you may roam

So this page is really about me telling them that I always wish many good and happy things for them and hope that they will always be blessed with everything good too.

I did some gesso stencilling and water colouring on my background and then also did some stamping.

I embossed the ornate photo corner with copper embossing powder and then added some pearls.

I used Graphic 45 papers and accents, which were perfect for this theme.

I hope you have been a little inspired and perhaps will play along with our challenge! Perhaps even a little Irish luck finds you winning one of the gorgeous prizes listed below too! ;-)

Something Tattered

When Beth began hunting wallpaper for the bandboxes she was creating in 1990 it started a life of antiquing adventures and a passion for old paper. In 1993 Beth’s wallpaper covered boxes we featured in Victoria magazine and Beth’s sister Marilyn Krehbiel joined her in the pursuit. Marilyn’s business Hannah’s Treasures evolved into purveying historic wallpapers for movie sets. Beth peddled her boxes to the coast of California and settled in the west. In 1997 Beth married Peter Neumann, son of a letterpress printer, who shared Beth’s appreciation for the old paper arts. In 2011 Peter and Beth began Something Tattered in response to Beth’s newest pursuit, Wedding Paper designs from her vast collection of antique paper. In 2013 Something Tattered launched the current line of craft stamps and in 2014 the new antique wallpaper stamps were added bringing the adventure full circle. We hope you will share the passion.
