A few more cards ...

I was messing around with some scraps and then decided to make cards out of the good ones ... 

this was just playing with re-inkers and alcohol inks and washi tape

this was using the same stamp and alcohol inks and oil pastels and water color brushes

the black one is clear embossing powder with background stamp then rubbing ink on it and rubbing it off , then the yellow one is color pencil and pop up partial images and the beige one is die cut with velum sandwiched in between cardstock to create a window

these are just using up left over scraps from a previous project ...

One eyed wire work ...

Yep I said one eyed ... I had cataract surgery last Wed. and can't do much of anything in art since I have one eye near sited and one eye far sited .... it will be another 4 weeks before I can get glasses to make the far sited eye see things up close ... sooooo I am doing things kind of one eyed ...

This is some wire work I am working on for a mix media book I will be doing in July at a retreat, the theme is Woodland/Forest ... I have lots of ideas running around in my head so I am trying to get some of the ephemera done in advance so I can do the construction at the retreat ....

I am pretty pleased with my butterfly ... it's wire, diamond glaze (left to dry) then I painted, with a very small paint brush, alcohol inks for the colors and small wire with seed beads to decorate the body ... I may do another one when I get both eyes to see if I can get the wing proportions better

#4 in the Altered Book Round Robin

This ladies theme is "Mica", I love to work with mica in altered books but truthfully I forget to use it so this really excited me ... I immediately thought of bottles of mica holding butterflies ... and then a window into another butterfly world so this is what I came up with ....

This one is for Gwynn ... her theme is Vintage layers, layers, layers in white and neutrals ... the white scrap with pearl buttons is off a Vintage gown, the little girl is my mother-in-law on transparency ... I think you can probably tell what the rest of the things are ... enjoy, click to enlarge

# 1 Altered Book Round Robin

I am in a round robin with 6 other people so this is my book and I am sending Graphic 45 paper and images and paper to each person to make their own little diary for their spreads ... I will show all when I get the book back about August of this year ... when it comes back I will finish the leather closure, hope I put enough length to it ... I love working Altered Books ...
