Take a Word - Door

Took me a while to get this done, in between sneezes and Kleenex "breaks". I made my ATC by painting it black, then swiping blue and green acrylics across it. All the stamps are from Lavinia. Thanks for looking!

Three Muses - Hot, Hot, Hot!

Our Marie lives down under in a blast furnace from what I understand! Wow, I feel for her! So our challenge is to create HOT! Why, Marie, I'd rather throw snowballs your way! Ok, I did an ATC, cutting flames free hand, using chalks and glitzy pens to hopefully give the feel of the heat. And my bathing beauty has figured out she's not at any beach she recognizes! Enjoy!

Take a Word - Romance

I seem to be falling further behind. Family and appointments have kept me on the go. I had an idea to use the romantic "how do I love you(thee), let me count the ways" and worked on it for a bit yesterday when I got home, but I was really tired, so I finally finished it today. I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day!

SPA - Heart

I did a freehand drawing of a heart, the background is tattered angels delphinium and I painted the heart with acrylics and glaze with bits and pieces. Thanks for looking!

Happy Valentine's Day

Here's a small heart shaped box I made with a collage sheet image from My Love Tags by Moonlight Journey. I painted the box an acrylic gold, make a small pad from paper towel to puff up the image and glittered around it. The last thing was the seed pearl trim around the outside of the cover. Thanks for stopping by!

SPA - Steampunk

I used Lynne Perella's "Temptress" stamp and Paper Artsy stamps of gears and rulers on watercolor paper that I smooshed several colors of ink (smooshing is such fun!) Did some embossing although it's always hard to tell on scans. Thanks for stopping by...hope your Sunday is awesome!

Theme Thursday - Family

I'm late...I was having fun yesterday getting 20 staples pulled from my abdomen. It wasn't that bad actually, I was grateful. Funny the things we can be weenies about...well, me at least! :o) So, I got busy as soon as I could playing catch up and here's my answer to the Family challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

WS - Leaves and Buds

I did a 4x4 for this challenge. Used acrylics, inks and a new stamp with some interesting features to it...geese in flight, for one. Thanks for looking!

Take a Word - Vintage

Sorry I'm late with mine...I used my mom and dad's wedding photo. They married as he was preparing to deploy to Italy on board ship during World War II. I wanted to use some of his poetry he wrote to her while on board ship, but it is so very faded, I didn't want to expose it as it's written in pencil, too. I can barely read it as it is, and not sure how to preserve what's left!
