Art Journal Discovering Your Talents

Hello Ladies...and Gents (if there are any :-)

I have finished my week 2: Trim Rose Challenge

Here are the pictures of my Art Journal Cover incorporating the trim rose. 

The complete cover!

Here is the Trim Rose that I made, it has a ribbon leaf and a pearl center. I also embossed a close to my heart stamp in the background. I just love when I can use multiple colors of embossing powder.  I also used a jewelry stick pin and hung a Tim Holtz pearl from it. 

One of my best friends always says "never a mistake only an opportunity." This Tim Holtz stamp says it all about my art work.

Film Strip and pop dots....and my finger for curling... :-)
