3 new postcards I made for a group I play with.
These are fun to make and more fun to mail!
The backgrounds are glossy photopaper with alcohol inks.
Use of glitter is becoming habit forming!

Here are two new note cards I put together. Hard to tell, but the photos (mine) are raised in several areas for dimension.
This is the inside of the second card.
This is the inside of the first card. Envelope design is the same for both.

Beauty by Design

Here is a new fat book I've been working on called Beauty by Design. I had a lot of fun working on it and like the look. I used Adirondack acrylics for the backgrounds.

As you can see, been having fun with my square punch. I found this image and thought it went so well with the background. What am I going to do with it? I don't know!

our obsessions

Since I have been swapping with my favorite Altered Fashion Photo group, I have accumulated so many art pieces, I thought it would be fun to put them all in a book aptly named - our obsessions.

Fun time at Mocha Night!

Patty taught us a new technique... the "behan batik". Photos are of both the original and the cover sheet used when ironing off the wax. The top three photos are the cover sheet and the bottom two are the originals! Interesting thing - I was using gloss 4x6 photo paper... not a real good thing when using extreme heat to remove the wax since the paper has a plastic coating. Mine certainly looked a lot different than those using glossy paper. I actually like the cover sheets better!!!! Lots of fun and I can't wait to do something with these!

New tip-in pages done!

This one is called "blend" and the notation states "no matter how hard she tried she always blended in'. Sorry for the flash on the bottom, Would not go away.

This one I tried ala claudine - painted the outfit - came out pretty well.

This one I used punches, adirondack ink, and a great fish stamp plus some cutouts from my fabric fashion mag - LUCKY. I always have fun with that one!

Been busy doing!

Been busy working on my postcard swaps, now have to finish 3 more tip-in pages. These were fun to do. Of coarse anyone who knows me knows I have to have flowers or some nature item in all that I do. These will be going out in the next few months. Can't wait to see what I get back from my fellow swappers!

Summer is coming right?

Another picture from my Florida trip. Today was a rainy, nasty day and I was daydreaming about blue skies, white sand, warm tropical breezes and turqoise water... ah, summer is coming, right?
