More Memory Mists

I am really liking the Memory Mist sprays from Stewart Superior.
I get them from After Midnight.

I'm working on a special project. This is a page for a book.

I don't usually put this much time into small paper projects, but this is for someone very dear to me. I hope she will like it.

I love the textures and color of the Memory Mists- and they coordinated well with some Radiant Rain pieces and some Ranger alcohol ink pieces and an Opals embellishment and even the shrink wrap bit done with Stewart Gill paints. LOL
This definitely got more involved than I expected. I even had to get out the craft knife, the screw punch and a small eyelet.
I spent some time with the button jar from my mom and grandmother too. That was pleasant. :)

SteamPunk try

Not sure where I'm going with this. It needs a new base- and the outside needs more elaborate embellishment.

The light changes color. I like the way it glows up through the rock crystal and continues up the tube to the crystal bead in the top section.

I want to cover the actual lighted base- the proportions are wrong. I need to be able to remove the top section so I can change the batteries when needed.

I think it needs more wire wrapping bits.

Pretty colored lights. :) I need to decide what I should claim this does...

Any suggestions?

Hummingbird on nest

My hubby spotted this nesting hummingbird in a tree in the parking lot at a local shopping center. He brought me back over with the camera.

The nest is so well camouflaged it took me a while to see it even when he pointed it out.

Close up of her bill- with the tongue sticking out.
