The Bench Trail

I just returned from our annual "decompress" trip to Mt. Nebo in Arkansas. This was our third trip there. I think we have found the cabin we like best.

The watercolor is my interpretation of the "Bench Trail". It has the overlook, which is the beginning of the trail, a deer we saw, Fern lake, and the last trail head for Varnall springs (orange marker) at the end of the trail.

Asian Dominoes

These are standard dominoes that I changed up. Instead of numbers I used "like" images. Even though they have no point value they are fun just the same. The images came from Ten Two Studios, Asian Standard Dominoes sheet. I cut them to fit the top and bottom, antiqued them with ink, glued over the dots (numbers)then applied gel medium to make the paper images more durable.

Maybe I need to make a full set to play a game.

My Very Best Friends

This little book is called "My Very Best Friends" . Ten Two Studios has some very nice download collage sheets in the Elements series.
I paired up the Friendly Elements sheet and the Cat's Meow collage sheet. The little folders that the book is made from is also from Ten Two Studios.
