This is the piece I created for the first challenge on my new Mixed Media Monday challenge site. The theme for the first challenge is "Vintage Women", because I think that is fairly popular with a lot of people. I hope a lot of people come along and join in the challenges on Mixed Media Monday - everyone is very welcome!

I decided to join in the fun at Fluffy Fatbottom's Twisted Tuesday challenge site. What a fun site that is! This week the theme is Wicked Witches, which is great because being an Aussie, I don't get to play with Halloween stuff all that much. This postcard size piece was done mainly with Cherry Pie stamps, but the spiders and web are from Non Sequitur and the bird is from Invoke Arts. Lots of sponging of inks and colouring with aquarelle crayons.

This is my first time playing with a Gothic Arch. I couldn't resist the challange this week on the Gothic Arches challenge site - Let's Party. So this is what I came up with. The arch made on matt board, using decorative papers (distressed), a vintage image, rubber stamps for the wording, German Scrap (I love that stuff) and a flower that I aged.

The challenge this week on Skinny Saturday is "Childhood". It was a great opportunity to play with the image, that I've wanted to use for ages and hadn't gotten around to. This piece was done with papers, distress inks, computer generated wording and rubber stamps.

The challenge on Wednesday Stamper has been autumn colours. I really love the these rich colours, so couldn't resist joining in. I actually needed to make some ATC's for a swap, with a Halloween type theme, so thought I'd be smart and do two things at once :0)
After months of fun and games, doing the Bernie Berlin ATC workshop on A.R.T., I have finished my last peice. We were supposed to alter a tin for storing ATC's in, but I decided to make a box instead - mainly because I was itching to experiment some more with my new Bind It All. This is the front view of it. There are Angels on every side and the top, but I've only scanned the front to show you. The box was cut from matt board and then punched with the Bind It All, and finally I threaded ribbons through to hold the box together.

Thought I'd play in the Arty Girlz challenge this week. It seems like simply ages since I made a tag. In fact it was so long I couldn't find where I'd put my tags, LOL. Never mind, it was quick and easy to make my own tag from matt board - and it's nice and solid.
