Just had to share

I am wicked hehehe ... Over on my Darkside challenge I set a ' Dark Fairytale' theme. But couldn't resist sharing it here too lol.
Hope it don't scare you all too much .. 'Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the scariest of them all ? '

This is an atc of mixed media, including : stamps, hand drawing, embossing, pens, inks and altered magazine photo plus a little alcohol ink

Dream Atc -Wednesdays stampers

This is for the Open Theme for wednesday stampers

Its so long since i did my favourite type of art .. the atc. I enjoyed this very much

For this weeks challenge at Mixed Media Monday . I decided to add these. I have had so much fun in 2008 with mixing inks,paints & pens with stamps sometimes too. These are two mini stampbords likely to end up as card embellishments or fridge magnets

Sunday, 28 December 2008

Over at arty girlz the challenge is 'for the home' and this is my attempt - A fridge magnet. This is an art piece on stampbord and i called it 'mixed emotions' based on the idea that nothing is entirely black and white. This is a mixed media piece and has two round magnets secured to the back. Already has a home ... yep my fridge hehehe

Thanks go to a very special blogger and friend Serena Who passed on to me this very special award. This is one of the nicest awards to recieve from another friend on the net and i feel really honoured that this wonderful lady and artist would think of me to pass along to, thanks Serena. I am thrilled to post this

Two New

Two New projects finished. The first is called 'Practice Makes perfect' Its a pastel background of deep blues,green and turquoise which are some of my very favourite colours. Then stamped in stazon black and added some cut outs from pretty black and silver paper

The brooch is another of my paper brooches complete with pin. This one is a cracked and vintaged look achieved with glaze and ink and alcohol ink ( will be adding tutorial on that immediately after this post on Juned crafty tips blog )

Eraser and pastel accident

Its been a crazy last week and had my sons 30th birthday plus a charity run with santa and his sleigh. Today there were no demands on me and i was able to finish these two things i have been working on.
One is just a basic pastel scene of a walker on a beach
the other is a technique i found by playing with the eraser on my pencil while deciding what to do with the colourful pastel background i had made. I thought it would be fun to use the eraser on the pen as my drawing tool and this guy was created

Also for the digital challenge at artarazzi i made this one
