T is for Tins
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

This mini-lunchbox tin has the cutest window! I painted it with Ranger Acrylic Paint Dauber, distressed the paint with walnut ink and added bits of rubons to the edges. 

The same rub-ons were used for my name and the other surface embellishments.

ONE WEEK LEFT TO RUSTLE UP A COMMENT
Topic: Welcome to my Blog

I've been struggling for the past few weeks, trying to decide whether posting on this blog should continue. YOU will be the deciding factor.

Back on May 31, I posted a notation that the blog had reached it's ONE YEAR anniversary. In celebration of that, I asked for comments to be posted 'through June 30' with all comments being put in a drawing for one of three items made during the A to Z self-challenge.

To this date I have received exactly ONE COMMENT - from my MOTHER!

Ia anybody else out there? Are you still reading this blog? Do you care? Shall I just forget it? I mean, really, if my Mom is the only person reading about my art, I can send her emails with photos!

So, if anyone wants this blog to continue, please leave a comment. You will be entered into the drawing to be held on July 1. If you don't want the blog to continue, why are you reading this now??? Hmmmm?

S is for Salvage
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

This well know character is salvaged from a paint sample card. A sticker adds text and it is layered on stitching.

R is for Re-Inkers
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

This technique is called 'caught in crystal' and uses white tissue paper, transparency, Future floor wax, re-inkers, and a rubber stamp applied with permanent black ink. 

I love how this came out. I added a true mat and applied to the front of shimmery green cardstock.

Q is for Q-Tips
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

Yeah, I decided to do ALL my holidays early this year! I found this pattern for a skeleton made from Q-Tips on the web. The original was made by a child.

I made his head from craft foam and gave him google eyes.

P is for Polymer Clay
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

I used scraps from my bead project to try out a mokume gane technique. I applied the slices to my single-needle tool and rolled in ultra-fine glitter before baking. Love this!

I haven't done any one-stroke painting for a long time. These are the first tulips I have painted. The text is a vellum sticker.

N is for Nuts
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

These squirrels are a calendar illustration. I bordered it with black cardstock to match the rub-on letters in the greeting. 

Simple.

M is for Motor
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

A digital creation for the boys in my life - This card will probably end up with some little grandsons. I took the photos on the lot when we went to buy a tractor, recently. Theywere cleaned up in PhotoPaint and combined in CoredDraw9.

L is for Lips
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

I created this digital image for the background using Corel PhotoPaint. The idea I had was to use 'tu-lips' for today's theme. I had this fabulous tulip sticker in my stash and created the colors in the background piece around that. 

The text is a sticker.

K is for Knit
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

I started this theme with the text sticker and turned it into a baby card. The background is printed scrapbook paper and the stitching along the sides is rub-ons. All the rest is stickers.

J is for Jewelry
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

First time making polymer clay beads. I used translucent clay with a small slice of metallic color for each of 4 bead colors. Then I used a bead former that has three shapes to make an equal number of each bead shape from each color. After baking they were strung on stretchy cord with wooden spacer beads.

Here is a closeup of the beads.

I is for Indigo
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

Remember ROYGBIV? It is the mneumonic for the order of the colors of the rainbow: Red Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.

So I decided to include the whole rainbow of colors and set them off against an indigo night sky. These whirly-gigs are actually cut out from a quilt printed in a calendar. I gave them a scrapbook paper grassy field and dyed flower buttons with alcohol ink for centers. 

The text is a vellum sticker. I enhanced the print to show up better.

H is for Husking
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

I've mentioned before that, although I do not like to do quilling, I do like husking. It's like drawing with strips of paper.

I created this bird from a picture of a husking found on the web. It is mounted on a Cuttlebug background,  patterned scrapbook paper and blue cardstock.

The text is a sticker.

G is for Gel
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

For this project I used Golden's Gel Medium (Soft Semi-GLoss). 

I used it as an adhesive and a topcoat for covering an old cigar box with wrapping paper collage.

This flyfishing wrapping paper made an attractive collage and I used gold tissue paper as edge bindings.

F is for Fabulous
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

I just love the fabulous colors on these tags! I distressed them and added a broken line around them. They each have a bit of sheer ribbon and garden-themed stickers. The text is a fabric sticker.

E is for Eagle
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

...well, really just eagle feathers....well really just rubber-stamped eagle feathers...

I used my hand-carved feather stamp, colored with watercolor pencils and moved the color around with a water-brush. I made the ring of wire and wrapped with a satiny ribbon. It is stitched it to the front of patterned paper with two strands of embroidery floss which was also used to create the web across the dreamcatcher and wind the base of the feathers.

The feathers are mounted on pop-dots and the text is a clear sticker.

D is for Date
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

I used a paper ledger and wrote in dates and transaction details, tore the edges and distressed with ink. Then I went on the hunt for antique-looking papers to combine with it. A child's penmanship practice sheet, an old catalog page and a tintype photograph sere in my selections, each distressed with ink, as well. I also distressed the background cardstock. 

The dip-pen and skeleton key are cardstock stickers and the text is a combination of two rub-ons.

C is for Camel
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

Christmas? So early?

What else are you going to do with camels? I drew this caravan and used the craft knife to cut them from patterned black scrapbook paper. They are layered on gold scrapbook paper and on maroon cardstock.

The card is embellished with a star brad and a text sticker.

B is for Bones
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

 This one was a real brain-stretcher. I finally ended up sketching up this fish skeleton and carving a rubber stamp from it. I stamped with walnut ink on crackle print scrapbook paper. The background paper seemed to fit the 'outdoorsy-flannel' look so I went with it.

The bear is a rub-on and the text with rick-rack is a fabric sticker.
