Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

RC007: Frosty - Use Vellum Challenge with Rogue Redhead Designs
Rogue Redhead Designs has a challenge to use vellum in some way on a project. I have used the wisdom of Winnie the Pooh printed on a piece of vellum to answer that challenge. Really, wisdom does not get much deeper than Pooh Bear, does it? I first covered 5"x7" blank white card with some pink birdcage card stock. I applied a strip of double sided tape across the middle of the card, peeled off the protective covering and dumped silver glitter across the tape. Removed excess glitter by a lot of tapping. I cut out the VELLUM phrase, framed it with a pink Anna Griffin frame, matted that on white card stock cut a little larger, then cut a slightly larger piece of green card stock and matted the entire phrase panel on that. I stamped LOVE from studio G's alphabet stamps and glued that to the right corner. I then glued the entire panel to the center of the card. Popped a peel and stick bird in the upper left corner, tied two tiny pink bows and attached one to the top and another to the bottom with glue dots. I stuck two pearl topped hat pins to the top portion and one peel and stick pearl by Queen and Co. to the bottom bow.
