TMTA "Marilyn Monroe"
I haven't participated in Think Monday Think ATC for ages, but today I made this ATC.
Sadly I have no Marilyn stamps so I had to use a found image. Just to make it a bit more interesting I altered her a bit.

Mixed Media Monday "Stitches"
The theme at MMM is stitches. I made a 6 x 6 piece. The background is a mixed media collage with fabric, lace, tissue and fibre to create some texture. I then painted over it with different acrylic paints including some Stewart Gill Alchemy paints, oh and Gesso of course; finally some stamping and inking.I then added some antique buttons and stitching of course, seeing that was the theme.

Gothic Arches "Cupcakes"
Gothic Arches is two years old this week and the theme to celebrate is Cupcakes.
I have to be honest, cupcakes really are not my thing, but I love Gothic Arches and therefore I just had to join in. Ah well, nothing like a challenge, so here is my interpretation of "Cupcakes"

TGIF "The Number 100"
It is the hundredth TGIF this week, and so the theme is 100.
I made a card using a stamping technique demonstrated by Heidi Swap on the Scrapbook.com website. She uses her special masks, I just made my own mask as I don't have any of hers. The image is from Paper Whimsy.

Thank God Its Friday "Banners"
I decided to make a little banner chain for today's challenge.
The central image is one of the wonderful images Art Creations Friday provided a few months back.

The three Muses "Things with Wings"
Things with Wings is the theme at TTM. Here is my 4 x 4. The fairyland stamp as far as I remember came free with Craftstamper magazine a few months ago.

For the last few days I have been busy creating a vintage scrapbook with the box of old photographs I found while clearing out a cupboard. Here are the first few layouts. I should give credit to the Graphics Fairy for many of the elements I used came from her.

Gothic Arches "Little Boys"
I couldn't believe when I saw that the theme at Gothic Arches is "Little Boys" this week. I am working on a memories/heritage journal/scrapbook, all in vintage style. This is because I found this amazing box of old family photographs while tidying up a cupboard (long overdue)....
Anyway, the image on the cover here is my dad and his brother when they were about 2 1/2 and 5 or so, I think it was taken in 1914. I just love the way they look so prim and proper, not at all what little boys would look like in our day and age. My two sons certainly didn't when they were that age....

SaWo Journal pages
The theme at SaWo is to show journal pages.
Here are two of the pages I did a while ago. Unfortunately I can't show any more recent pages as my present journal is too fat to go under the scanner and my camera isn't working properly...:(

Back from my hols and happy to be there just in time to take part in the next challenge of the Three Muses where the theme is Art in the Round. I had been wanting to alter a CD for ages and this was just the perfect excuse.
