Have to go off to the United States for work until March 3, no time for art work during that time sadly.
I need a career guide to help me get the education needed for an art degree so that I can do art all the time! But for now, maybe I will get some shopping done. For us Europeans Michaels can be quite a treat...:o)

The theme at TGIF is hands. I love that theme, aren't our hands what makes us truly human? There are so many things that we can do with our hands, give and receive, create bless and pray. Through our hands we make visible he sentiments and gifts of our hearts.... Ah well, here is my modest contribution to the theme.

In the last few days I have felt really inspired by the work of some of the brilliant Scandinavian cardmakers and scrapbookers. They work in a very different style from my usual one, but for once I just had to try making a card in that sort of style. I actually really liked the process and may well do it again. Maybe that way I finally will get some use out of the "cute" stamps that I have collected over the years

Saturday's workout "Shrink Plastic"
Finally got time to participate in some of the challenges again because it is half term!
Shrink Foil or plastic is the theme at SaWo. I made an ATC, - the background is collaged then overpainted with acrylics. The tag is embossed metal with an image from Paper Whimsey and finally the letters are stamped onto shrinkplastic, cut out and then shrunk with a heat gun. A little trick I learned was to do the shrinking inside a little box, that way the plastic cannot fly all over the place.

Gothic Arches "tag your arch"
Here is my contribution to this week's Gothic Arch challenge.
I used a roughly arch shaped tag. Collaged it with different papers. Overpainted with acrylic paints, stamped different images then adhered another tag.
