Dans Un Jardin

I've been playing with digital download sheets from Paper Whimsy - there are some lovely garden-themed ones.
On this one I added a key made by my clever friend Rosie; I think she used paper clay and a mould. I applied gold paint and wax.
The image of this little girl is from Lisa's Altered Art and the transparency in the corner I made myself. The rest is Paper Whimsy.
************************************************************************************
Finally, this is an ATC shrine that I bought from Retro Cafe Art - if you follow the link you'll see it was a flat pack that I glued together. All the paper is Whimsy and I added the quote (it was actually on the picture but a bit too small) which you probably know means my heart belongs in a garden.
I quite like this idea - I may order another one!
