Think Monday Think ATC "Ice Blue"

Here is my entry for this week's challenge at TMTA. Been so busy with looking at all the OWOH blog's that I did not do any art work myself, but this week I decided I must do something. The background is multy layers, stamping, inking, gesso, more stamping etc. The image is a gel medium transfer. Finished off with some lace, hand made flower and doodling.

One world one heart

Most people will know by now about the one worl one heart give away. I decided to give away a beautiful stamp set of 15 medieval tarot card stamps. Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win and do check out by clicking the one world logo what it is all about, if you don't know already. The picture just shows some of the stamps, as I said there are 15 in the set and they are mounted on EZ mount already. If you don't have a blog, make sure to leave your email in your comment. The winner will be drawn on February 12

Sunday Postcard "Turqoise!

The theme at Sunday Postcard is Turqoise. Have not managed to participate for ages because of lack of time, but this week I really wanted to, turqoise, though I don't often use it in my art, is one of my favourite colours.

Gothic Arches "Gypsies"

The theme at GA is "Gypsies". I think we actually should call them Romanies as the word Gypsies is not truly politically correct.... Anyway, I experimented with my background paper, first I used an altered background from Shabby Cottage Studio, I added colour with various inks, overstamped and added the image, I then scanned that, opened it in photoshop and added some digital stamps/brushes (something I just learned in Gail's workshop). I then printed the image, added more colour and "real" stamping and some embellishments and finally mounted it on a piece of card which was embossed with the cuttlebug script folder.

Art Creations Friday

Art Creations Friday provided this brilliant image of a little school girl this week for their challenge.

Here is my contribution.

The frame is a piece of metal embossed with the Cuttle Bug. The background was done with white embossing powder resist technique.

One of my New Years resolutions was to create an art journal. I know I cannot do a page every day, but am aiming for one or two a week. Here are my first two pages.

Mixed media Monday "Friends"

The theme at MMM is "Friendship".

I created my background with collage. I then made a metal frame with Ten Second Studio's metal and tools etc. that I received as a Christmas gift from my wonderful children. The image is a freebee from Nancy Dooren's site.

Gothic Arches "Grunge"

Grunge is the theme at GA today. I covered my arch in texture paste, coloured it with cranberry and expresso acrylic dabbers. The image is from Shabby Cottage Studio Altered Children digi collage sheets. I put a stripp of embossed metal along the bottom to try and make it more "grungy" added some higlights with distress stickles, (they got lost in the scan)and added a few sticker embellishments and the text. Finally the arch was edged with a Krylon copper pen.

Wednesday Stamper "Gesso"

Just back from the States, so this will be my first entry to a challenge in the New Year.
The theme at Wednesday Stampers is "Gesso". One of my favourite art materials as it is so versatile. Here I have used it in combination with collage.

Birthday Card

Birthday Card
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!
