A set of decorated hands

Here is a set of decorated hands created for a journal swap. The idea is that a journal is made out of the different hands created for the swap. Each artist participating has traced their own hands (so these are obviously mine) and then decorates them in whatever style. On the back of each one is a handwritten art quote.
We each have to make six hands in all so I still have two more to go but they are great fun to do!

Three Skinnies for various swaps

Here are three skinnies I made in the last couple of days. I like this 3 x 5 format, not too big and not to small...

The Three Muses "Ribbons and Bows"

Ribbons and Bows is the theme at the three Ms. This is a postcard I made for a swap. Ribbons and Bows are not a big feature in it but they are there, so I thoutght I could use this card for the challenge.

Body parts are from Studio Maya at Scrapbook Graphics (legs) Jacket: Lisa's Altered Arts, Head: Digital Collages (I think, found it in my stash). Borders:Deviant Scrap and my own. Curtains:Cut from paper from Cebeline.

Journal Page "Dreams of Summer"

I needed a break from all the zetti type stuff I have been doing. As today is my day off I created this spread in my art journal.I called it dreams of summer. It's pretty cold here again and I can't wait til I go to warmer climes for my summer break... The background was created with a paper napkin, collaged over a painted background. The little girl image is from a free collage sheet from Land of Nod studios. Most of the borders are my own. The bird image came from my pile of collected collage images.
My journal is becoming so fat that it is very hard to scan it properly, hence the fuzzy bit in the middle.

Mini journal page for a trade

These are the two sides of a journal page I created for a trade at my favourite art place. One side was to be zetti the other free choice. The background on both sides are my own. All other elements are either freebees from flickr or bits from Tumble Fish Studio at Deviant Scrap. The coffee lable is from Efie's blog and the little girl's head from Paper Whimsey.

Crowabout week 83

After teaching meditation classes for most of the day at the adult education center where I work, I was somewhat in a mystical mood. Hence the rather unusual piece (for me) I created with the brilliant collage sheet Land of Nod studios provided for the Crowabout collage group on Flickr....
Background is from Joes Sistah (slightly altered by me) all other elements from the sheet.

More mail art

Another decorated envelope. This one is for a free choice theme at my favourite art site. My theme is Provence. I used paper napkins and collage elements, paint crayons. etc. Main image from a Bouguereau CD from Lunargirl, most other elements from Effie's blog. I decorated both the front and the back. The grapes and Provence text are from the paper napkin

Journal page

My journal has been rather neglected in recent weeks as I have been too busy with other projects, both art and otherwise. But seeing as I joined up to Pam Carriker's journal 365 class and we were just given a new installment for June, I thought I better do a page and try out the new tecniques. It was quite a strange process as my heart was not really in it, really because just recently I have been exploring quite different styles. Still, it is always good to explore many and varied things and perhaps ultimately putting more and more of my own stamp on it...

The three Muses "Time"

The Three Muses have been going for one year. Time flies though in a way it seems to me as if they have been there much longer...
Anyway, the theme this week is "Time".

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!
