A Creation from Keri

I rec'd this beauty as a RAK (Random act of Kindness). I just love the rich red's. I especially love the paper (Treasure Trends) and the ribbon at the bottom. This was so sweet of her and it's a treasured addition to my collection. Thanks Keri- it's appreciated & loved!

Altered Papers

I really like how these papers turned out. I made a little atc book with them. The papers are layers & layers of paints, glazes, inks & stamps with some gesso mixed in for good measure. The look is a little grungy. I've done a few sheets of these lately- I just add another layer when I walk by it. Then when I think it's done I can make a little book & have some left over for another project. I also love these little atc books!

Another Background

I really am addicted to this! This one is on canvas & I had a little fun with the gesso (a la Keri). At some point soon I'll stop making the backgrounds & add something to them! It's just while I have the painting stuff out & spread all over the place I thought I'd do a few. More canvases to be delivered this week....Yippee!

Outside "my" box

Well- I tried another technique from the current issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors (Summer 2006) and it took me outside my normal boundries a bit, but I stretched & I really liked it. I took the background & used it in a deco. I could play some more - enjoyed it! I'm really liking combination of paint & paper that I've been playing with lately. It's more fulfilling to me than just paper.

Oops- I cut off the top of her crown when I scanned her!

Behind me

As much as I love swaps, I'm glad that most of them are behind me. I've got lots of things that are almost finished so hopefully I'll be posting in the next few days. Here's a slide mailer that I did for a swap that Annette is hosting. The style is much grungier than my usual, but I had fun with it. Just layers & layers of stuff. I hope the recipient likes it. Although the swap didn't specify that one was needed- I decided to break out the soldering iron & add a slide to it. There will be more of that!

Try it Tuesdays!

I'll admit it.....I'm a technique junkie.....can never get enough! I love that Chrysti started & invited me to this group. (See link at right) We'll have a new technique each week to try. And we don't have to create a finished piece- just the technique. And to make it even better- a random person will be drawn (lottery style) to win a prize. I just love this weeks technique- supplied by Karyn Gartel- the Altered Diva! I hope to find some time this weekend to play some more. Here's a couple of my samples.
I don't know why my pix always get out of alignment when I post more than one....maybe one day I'll figure it out. Good thing I'm no longer a perfectionist as this would drive me crazy!!

I am a complete technique junkie myself! I especially appreciate finding someone who will share their technique AND write directions. I love to share, but directions push me over the edge!
Most of the time I am just trying a little of that, and maybe this. By the time I'm done, who knows how I got there. LOL
