Take a Word "Time"

As many of you will have noticed, there is a new challenge blog run by the clever ladies of the Three Muses.
Every week they will give us a challenge to create something with a word prompt. This week is it is "Time"

Time is something I never seem to have enough of (like many people I'm guessing). I decided to create a tribute to the Goddess of Time, asking her to grant me more. The piece did not work out at all how I had wanted it, but at least I had fun painting...

The Three Muses "Hats"

Time was rather short this week, so all I had time for was a rather boring atc with a hatted lady on it. Sorry not very inspired but I did want be part of the challenge and hope to be inspired by others:o)

Halloween journal pages

I seem to be in a Halloween groove. Halloween themes keep appearing in my journal. Here are the two latest ones. The sitting witch is from a Magic by Moonlight sheet, the other one is one of Land of Nods latest freebees, - I gave her a witch hat from a freebee Halloween collage sheet by Constancet on Flickr.The backgrounds are my own painted stamped and collaged.

Two journal pages

It's been a while since I have shown some of my journal pages. Here are two that I did recently.
The one that is mainly hand drawn (I used one paper artsy stamp)was inspired by Pam Carriker's Journal 365 workshop over at Creative Workshops. The iamges on the other one are from Teesha Moore as most of you will recognize.

2011 Calendar finished!

My vintage ladies beermat calendar is finally finished. Now all I need to do is bind it. Pfew, I'm quite sick and tired of vintage ladies by now at least for a while...The thing is I wanted all pages to be in the same style. Almost all of the images are from Lisa's altered arts.

The Three Muses "Vintage"

The theme at the three Ms is "Vintage" this week. Well more than half of what I make would probably fit this theme...
Anyway, decided to make a couple of ATCs, I had this idea of making twelve ATCs one for each month of the year and make them into a book. Not sure whether i'll really do it or not, but here are two "vintage" ones anyway.
Images are from Lisa's altered arts collage sheets. Back grounds are my own, crackles were done with Rangers Chrackle Accents then rubbed with acrylic paints and wiped off quickly. The rest is painted stamped etc.

Gingersnap Creations Gothic Elements

This is the first time I am participating in one of the Gingersnap Challenges.
I made a 4 x 4 hanger for the current theme Gothic Elements.

2011 desk top calendar

I am making a 2011 little calendar out of altered beer mats. Here are the first 4 pages. When they are all done I will bind them together with a zutter machine.
All images are by Lisa's Altered Arts.

Altered envelope journal swap



There is another altered envelope swap in my art group.This month the theme is artist choice. Altering envelopes is defenitely a new addiction, I just love doing them and receiving them! For those of you new to this, once you have altered your envelope, (you do need to leave a space for the address) you send them "naked" to your partner or whoever you want to send one to. This "naked" means there is nothing inside the envelope other than perhaps a piece of card to keep it sturdy. The recipient does not open the envelope but keeps it shut to treasure as a piece of art for its own sake. Of course you could bind them into a book once you have a collection of them. Great fun and a nice change from ATCs.

The Three Muses "Music"

The theme at the three Ms is "Say it with Music". This is actually the back of the Chicken themed journal swap I'm doing but as the background has some music in it I thought I'd put it in for the Three Muses's challenge also.

"Chicken" journal page

In my art group we do a monthly 5 x 7 journal page swap. This month the theme was Chicken. Hmmm, not a theme that I found all that easy, but here it is, I gave it a slight Halloween twist, after all it is October...

The Butterfly Effect

I finally managed to make my butterfly for the Butterfly Effect initiative started by Two Dresses Studios. If you have not heard of this, click on the picture in the sidebar.

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!
