A Submission to Stampers Sampler

This was a fun challenge. I was required to use a "pocket template" and create a piece of art. The other requirement was to use a stamp. I used Michael Strong's fan stamp. Cut out the inside and folded paper to give it more of a fan look. I used a collage page from a Somerset Studio magazine and cut out the sewing images. I call it "Grammy's Sewing Kit".

Egypt ATCs

Here are some ATCs I've done for a swap. This was a tough swap to do. I really need to use my imagination.

Gothic Arches - Sunday

Here Comes The Bride
The theme this week for Gothic Arches is "Music and Lyrics".
This is my entry for this week. Can't say where the subject came from, it was the first thing that popped into my head.

Mixed Media Monday

The theme this week is Whimsy. Not too sure if my idea of whimsy is the same as everyone's. If nothing else, I'm thinking you'll at least get a chuckle.

A Little Twist on Resolutions

This is a page spread I did for an altered artbook group I belong to on Yahoo. I really haven't made any "resolutions" for the new year and thought I would put a little fun into resolutions.
The comments from the cats are a little hard to read. They are trying to come to a resolution around which hat they all like the best.

4 x 4 Friday

Today's theme is textured paper. For this technique I crumpled water color paper. Brushed on twinkling h2os and then ran the paper across a brown stamp pad to high light the raised creases. I then stamped leaves with green ink and embellished with words and a wire swirl. The "nest" is made with melted paper bag and string. The image is a combination of ARTchix studios faux stamp collections cut out to create the bird.

Theme Thursday

Today's theme is quotes. I can really relate to this one by Louisa May Alcott.
