Welcome to my blog. My blog is mainly for the sharing of the many projects I make either for swaps, for gifts or just because I was inspired by something I saw on the internet and wanted to give it a try as well. I hope you enjoy what you see and if you have any questions be sure to send me a comment.

Art Swap projects.

Two recent projects included a couple of my favorite types of project.  "Summer in Paris" a digital hybrid (meaning something was physically added to the piece after it was printed), and a grunge tag duo.

Steampunk Shoes

I borrowed this stamp from a friend and stamped, embossed in different colors of powder.  These are 2 cards I've made using this wonderful shoe from Stampendous Rubber Stamps. The actual stamp has the words "click your heels" which just sounded too "ruby slippers for me."  Keeping my eyes open for a saying for the rust colored card.   Also shows a close up of the hardware attached to the ankle of boot.  A jewelry clasp for the end of ribbon with a key hanging from it.

More Art Journal pages...


The top two are the backs of the first two pages that I uploaded.  The bottom two are the front and back of a new page I did this weekend.  For the most part they are incomplete until I can get some inspiration for finishing them.

Art Journal Pages

I was fascinated by the videos from January's Craft & Hobby Association show with Dyan Reaverley color sprays.  So I've bought them and decided that creating backgrounds would be fun.  There is a lot of talk these days about Art Journaling, so went one step further and created a couple of art journal page.  Here are my results.  Pretty pleased with how they turned out.  We're featuring an Art Journal page swap on my AFTCM Yahoo group.  I am currently working on another page for that.
