Guest Designer Anne Gaal

Happy Friday!!! I don't know about you but I am thrilled it's the weekend. Not only is it the start to the weekend but it's the start of vacation for my youngest. This is the first time that she is on vacation and her brother's aren't. I am so excited to have a whole week alone with her. I have many things I want to do with her and I am hoping that we get to accomplish most of them so that we can share them here on the blog. She loves crafting as much as I do and I found some fun stuff for us to make.

Today's guest is an amazing designer. I don't know Anne well personally but her work is one of my favorites in the Hero Art Flickr Pool and I was so excited when she agreed to come by the blog and share her stunning work. She has so much talent. I get excited every time I find something new in her photostream. Be sure to check it out HERE.

Anne let me go through her photostream and pick my favorites. This first card just takes my breath away. The colors just draw you in, the layers are perfection! I love how you can see just a little bit of the music note stamp on the background and the way she crackled the small butterflies just adds one more incredible layer of dimension. I love this card!


I couldn't stop at one so I picked 2. I love this card. It is simple yet has so much depth to it. I love how she added layers of color to the one flower and then shaded the rest. Just stunning and really makes you think of Harvest I love it!


Here is a little more about Anne:
