NATURE COLLAGE GREETING CARDS – So soothing to cut & paste papers to make some Autumn inspired greeting cards, which I will teach to my card group in November.  Gutted an old garden and bird books for the paper ephemera inspiration.  Adding some metallic copper paint to the chestnut colored leaves to bring in some magic!  These cards will be my sample cards to give ideas of how each person will make their card uniquely theirs.  


Photos of Snowy Egrets on the beach & in the tide pools at Pacific Beach. This is where Shelly Cat, Marv & Louis went to watch them!  Have you ordered your book yet to share in their adventures?

Do you know that you can now walk into any bookstore & they can order you a copy of “Shelly Cat By the Sea:  Adventures at the Beach”?  You can still order it at Amazon, too!  https://www.amazon.com/dp/099820711X/ref=sr_1_1…

Peacock Magic Greeting Cards


“Peacock Magic” – Photo Greeting Cards of peacocks & a peacock painting/collage art of mine.  We all love peacock’s beauty – the magic shimmer of their feathers & the fan that is displayed when they open their tail all captivate our imagination like they are a creature from an Arabian Nights fairy tale. 

These peacock photographs were shot at the San Diego Zoo where wild peacocks walk the trails with visitors.  “Peacock Jewel Tapestry” is a Japanese brush painting with gelli prints and a watercolor background all collaged together to create layers of beauty & magic. 

These “Peacock Magic” greeting cards are perfect to use for any occasion.  The inside of the cards are blank and each card back is hand-stamped with either a dolphin or pelican motif, which has been hand-carved & printed by Nancy Lee Artist By-the-Sea.  Each card is 6 ½” x 5” with a 6” x 4” photo.  These cards could also be easily framed to give as gifts or display in your home!

A set of six cards costs $20 plus shipping & handling.  At this time, these cards are only available for purchase direct from the artist on Etsy.
