Treasured Tuesday

Treasury Tuesday has arrived. Time to feature some wonderful shops and treasuries.

Nan Smith from NanSmithImages is the first curator to be featured today  I can almost feel the ocean spray from her treasury.   

Nan loves being in nature, capturing a moment, then exploring it in Photoshop.  The beautiful yellow rose at left is an example of her skills as a photographer.

Vick Linde of Nottingham England started writing poetry as a young girl and just kept going.   She wanted to have the words she wrote visible, and so began to design collages to frame her poetry.  

The handmade art card at right is available in her shop.  I love the color green, and she has made a lovely green treasury.

Amanda Pennington of PenningtonArt is a self taught artist, who has been doing art for as long as she can remember. Painting means a lot to her because she feels that every painting comes from her heart.  

In addition to the charming treasury below, Amanda made the streetlight painting shown.
