Mixed Media Monday - Birds

The theme on Mixed Media Monday this week is "Birds". This is my piece. Most of the stamps are from Invoke Arts, but the bird with the girl on her back is from Alpha stamps.

Wednesday Stamper - Growing Old

What a lovely theme on Wednesday Stamper this week - Growing Old. It is lovely to honour the older people, in this very youth oriented time. Well, I have the grey hairs, but not too sure about the "wisdom", LOL.

Mixed Media Monday

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!

4 x 4 Friday - Dream, Inspire, Create

This week on 4x4 Friday the theme was to use one of these words - dream, inspire or create - or all three. I could have easily used all three because they are all great words, but I resisted, and only used dream.

Wednesday Stamper - Children

The theme this week on Wednesday Stamper is children - one of my favourite themes!

Twisted Tuesdays - Wicked Witches

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.

Gothic Arches - Let's Party

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.

Skinny Saturday - Childhood

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.

It is another fun theme on 4x4 Friday this week - "Numbers". This is my piece - I have used paper for the background, which I then distressed - rubber stamps, fly screen, a collage image, a watch dial and a wooden number.

Skinny Saturday = Wings

There is a new challenge site, which is called Skinny Saturday. For this challenge you need to make a 5 inch by 3 inch piece, and this week the theme is Wings. Since I seem to be obsessed by wings at the moment, I couldn't resist the challenge.

Wednesday Stamper - Autumn Colours

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)

4x4 Friday = Man

There was another fun challenge on 4x4 Friday this week - the subject was "Man". I had fun with this - I felt like a bit of whimsy! Background is stamped and sponged, the rest is collage elements.

ATC Storage Box

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.

Arty Girlz - Tags

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.

TMTA - Pirates

The Think Monday, Think ATC theme this week is Pirates. Now who could resist the chance to come out and play with Jack Sparrow? This was a fun theme.
