These are the decos I've been working on which will be winging their way to Switzerland this afternoon. :o)

First up we have a deco where each spread has to incorporate a transparency. Whilst rummaging about looking for something to use I came across some old slides of Venice so went with that as my theme. It was a bit of a pfaff cutting the holes, not being the most accurate soul in the world, but it worked out fine. ;o)

Second, we have a deco entitled Golden Dreams. The text doesn't show very well on this scan but it says "golden slumbers kiss your eyes".

Next is a body parts themed deco. This pic doesn't really show the colours very well, in the light you can see the golds and reds over the black gesso
And last is my fave, a winter wonderland themed deco. I wasn't at all inspired by this one until I found the text and then it all just came together as these things do! ;o) I'm a sucker for beaded trim so that's probably why it's my favourite!

Ok, that's enough deco talk for one day!

I love them all and recognise that body parts one! I think that one is my favourite - is that your own foot?

I reminds me slightly of an Edgar Allen Poe story about a man who is haunted by red footprints.

Thanks, Kari. ;o) It is indeed my own foot - I still have gesso between my toes as proof! LOL
