I'm back in the cold of NY after 5 blissful days in the Dominican Republic. Sigh....a wonderful vacation, but at least now I'm able to do some creating.

My PID Swaps Group is working on the lovely image of Avery for our March swap, and I just finished mine. Since she's wearing her wings, I decided to put her in a specimen bottle and give her a fancy latin name. "aer volatilis averyimus," according to the translator would be small flying avery. Well, I think the small and the flying are accurate, but I just stuck a latin word ending onto Avery.

You can't see it in the scan, but I gave the bottle two coats of clear embossing powder so it does look like glass in person. The bottle istself is a stamp from starving artists, and I really love it. My background is red glimmer mist (well, my homemade version) on water color paper.
