Just a little note to say I am off for my holidays to France. Back on August 3. I plan to go to as many flee markets as I can and any interesting finds will be scanned and go into my flickr as freebees. Have a creative time everyone and thanks for all your wonderful coments, see you when I am back.
We are to use fabric this week in the Sunday Postcard Challenge. I used various bits of antique lace. The background o my postcard was created by using various colours of acrylic paints over a collaged background which was then overstamped. The image is by Paper Whimsey.
The theme at SaWo is "Circle it". I was totally inspired by the piece Hermine Koster submitted. She has a fantastic tutorial you can download via her blog. All credts for this piece go to her for this tutorial. All I did was follow it and then add my own slant.
There is a comparatively new challenge blog called Tuesday Taggers. I only just discovered it and decided to join in the challenge for today which is Friendships and sentiments. I made two very different tags in different styles, just to challenge myself.
This week at Gothic Arches the theme is to create a "Gothic ATC". I made my back ground with different Adirondac and distress inks and stamping with these same inks. The little girls are from Lisa's Altered Art.
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
