Arty Girlz Challenge 36 ''Wings''

This weeks arty girlz challenge is ''Wings''. I have made 2 ATC's and a Brooch. I have just swapped with a friend on a forum some of my unwanted stuff for hers. In hers was a lovely torso art mould so i thought ohhh lets get burnt and get the melting pot out, and yes i did burn myself about three times which is the usual practice for me and the melting pot, kind of a love hate relationship really. Anyhow so i had some lovely rubon's my mom gave me that she didn't want, they are super quality and filled with glitter no idea who makes them, well some butterfly's and dragonfly's were in the selection so here is my entry to ''wings''. Don't know if i am going to swap them or keep them or send them as RAKS I'm undecided.

Fat Page Book

I have recently joined a fat page swap so i figured i had better make a cover for it. I am quite happy with how it turned out. The embellishment on the front is a style stone which come white and can be decorated with all inks.
A fat page is 4" X 4" and decorated leaving a 1/2" boarder on the left so it can be bound into a book. The back of the pages are written up similar to ATC backs.

Arty Girls Challenge 35 Recycling

This weeks Arty Girlz challenge is to recycle something.

For my entry i decided to recycle an old tin i got for Christmas that had hot chocolate in it that was also awful so a good excuse to throw it away.

The new re-vamped tin is now full of buttons, you know the ones you get on new clothes and then always loose, well i do anyhow.

Aquarel Crayons

Also today i played with a new technique with aquarel crayons. I am very happy with the result and think i will play a bit more!! Disclaimer: i did not design this card nor am i taking credit for the layout.

Marvy Markers

I had a play today with marvy markers under the tuition of one of my friends. After several backgrounds i managed to be semi-happy with this one and turned it into a card. I have to say i am very disappointed with them. I am not sold on the technique at all and i don't think i will be buying any.

Stamping with a twist

Wyvernsian has organised a swap called ''stamping with a twist'' the twist being you must use a stamp and you cannot stamp onto paper/card/tissue/Mount board etc. If you make more than 1 ATC it must be stamped onto something different from the first. For my entry to the swap my first was to stamp onto a silk flower, i am quite happy with the outcome. My second was to stamp onto iridescent film and 3D it which i am very happy with how this one turned out.

Rollergraph again

After making my first rollergraph butterfly card i decided to make 2 more. 1 allready sold before it was dry!

I love this new cattitude decoupage. Unfortunately i think i am having a bad day as this hasn't come out as i wanted it to. This is for my grandma who is going into hospital soon for an operation to try remove ''the silent killer'' otherwise known as ovarian cancer. I know she will find the images as funny as i do.

Button fairy

I decided to join an organized swap to make the new craze of button fairy's. I must admit my heart wasn't in it and i am not too impressed with the result. I don't think i will be making anymore of these, its not my thing.

Card making again

No time for ATC's at the moment i have a ton of cards to make!! This one is for my partners team at work, one of the team is getting married on Saturday.

Love Magenta stamp sets

I made this card a while ago for the mother-in-law's 50th birthday. The picture does not do it justice in my humble opinion.
Magenta stamp set, stamped with black stazon and water coloured with aquarel water colour crayons using a paint brush. Backed with gold metallic card and lifted off the card with 1mm foam pads. She loved it!!
