Die Cut Diva Guest Designer ~ Anne Gaal

This month's amazing guest designer over at Die Cut Diva challenge blog is none other than Anne Gaal... and today she paid me a lovely compliment by highlighting me on her blog...( see here)  So I'm here to pay the compliment back.

Anne is a true artist.  She makes cards, ATC's, paints and just lately she has been making some amazing pieces of jewellery.  You can see the Die Cut Divas post about Anne and her jewellery here

Today I want to share with you some of Anne's beautiful work ( all shown with her permission)

First up a pair of tags Anne did in 2010.  Just incredible.

Paint Dabber tags with Baroque Ornaments

Next a mixed media piece from September 2013

Mixed Media Green Owl

and a beautiful card
Queen for a Day Card 

This card  was done very recently and if you click on it, it will take you to a video Anne did on how it was made. 

and finally a piece of jewellery

Anne is very generous in sharing her art with great tutorials, discussions and videos.

Anne and I bonded several years ago when we both were going through some similar health issues and I am happy to call her a friend.  One day, maybe, we might even get to meet in real life!  Who knows!

So please go and visit and have a look around her amazing blog ~ Gaal Creative  and have look around her Etsy shoppe

And don't forget to visit Die Cut Divas for a look at more of Anne's jewellery today.
