Blessings
Topic: New Work

Instead of using this little corner pocket as designed I used it as a corner element on this calendar illustration. The borders of the cranberry cardstock are cut unevenly and serve as a background for a greeting sticker. Green cardstock is used to bring our the background of the leaves.

Cactus Bird
Topic: New Work

Another calendar illustration has been double-matted with a large border at the bottom to feature the puffy acrylic text sticker.

Mailing a Garden
Topic: New Work

A watercolored stamping of pansies was the jumping-off point for this collage card. Postage stamps echo the theme introduced by the 'postcard' element. Vellum stickers of pansies frame out the bottom border and a plastic text sticker finish it off.

Off Center Greeting
Topic: New Work

This card folds in from both sides, deeply from the left and narrower from the right. I got the bird illustration from a calendar and mounted on yellow to match the bird.

Leaf it to Me
Topic: New Work

These two cards are more of the 'caught in crystal' techniques with reinkers. I made these backgrounds while doing the technique for the A-Z challenge but sued different colors and stamp.

That 70's Card
Topic: New Work

This pattern was stitched up in just two colors which lend this card a 1970s feel. I remember clothing, curtains, and furniture with these sinple color combinations.

Over the Edge(s)
Topic: New Work

A calendar of waterfalls yielded this illustration which I trimmed with scrapbook border and square stickers. Mounted on dark blue cardstock to match a text sticker which is backed with a sky blue card with rounded edges.

Quilting with Thread and Paper
Topic: New Work

One of my groups put up this challenge - everyone using the same pattern. We all stitched it up with different interpretations. Lisa Burns is the pattern designer.

Beaded Instrument
Topic: New Work

I took a recent opportunity to re-stitch this harpsichord from my own pattern. It uses bugle beads for the slide adjustments and seed beads for the string adjustment keys. I used metallic threads to make the strings liik like metal and brown thread for the edge to suggest wood construction.

Minty Colors
Topic: New Work

This medallion by Fred-She-Said was fun to put together. The colors are very candy-like and I decided to make a valentine of it.

Pillow Talk
Now Playing: 3D work
Topic: New Work

I used a striped and a dotted scrapbook paper as backgrounds for these 3D pillows. I've done these up and shown them before with a different background.

So Transparent
Topic: New Work

The final project we made with Tim Holtz was this acrylic album. We learned to paint on acrylic with alcohol inks and added a lot of free product.

Mini-scrapbook
Topic: New Work

The first project we made with Tim Holtz was a mini scrapbook using Heidi Swapp papers, grungeboard, and tons of free products. I have mine finished off with photos of our trip from home to return, a few bits of ephemera, and journaling in white pen.

Hanging Around
Topic: New Work

This necklace was made using Ideaology product that Tim Holtz supplied for a workshop. We had a couple of samples but used out imagination to combine the pieces we had been given.

Alaska Frame
Topic: New Work

This frame was made on the Tim Holtz cruise. We distressed the pre-stamped background, decorated acrylic Fragments with bits of clip-art with an Alaska theme and attached them on the surface. The grungeboard tag was pre-stamped for us and we distressed and atached it.

Mirror Mirror
Topic: New Work

On the cruise with Tim Holtz we made this mirror by covering the wood frame with grungeboard pieces that we had distressed with paint daubers, a scratch tool, and distressing ink.  I used some of Tim's Ideaology metal elements for decoration.

Z is for Zipper
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

And so, we come to the last entry in the 6-month A to Z self-challenge. After this it will be back to posting whatever, whenever.

Today I made this birthday card. Only the zipper is real (and it does still zip open and closed). All of the other fastenings are rub-ons and the letters are drawn with Sharpie.

When the zipper is opened you can see a Happy Birthday sticker inside the flap.

Y is for Yeast

"Yeast' brings to mind 'bread' so I designed this stitching based on that. It is on a 6 x 6 scrapbook paper and double-matted with two 8 x 8 cardstocks in complementary tones. My plan is to frame it.

X is for Xiphias
Topic: A - Z challenge 7

And you say "WHAT? What is a Xiphias? I don't remember this on the big list of topics!"

And you would be so right! It was not on the big list of topics. I inserted in place of Xylography. I have not done woodcuts before, I really put it off as long as I could and STILL had no inclination to do it.

So I inserted Xiphias in it's place. Now as to the definition? It's the scientific name for a swordwish.

I printed this guy and cut him out, mounted on scrapbook paper and cut to size. Then I made a picture for the back of it, a sunset on the beach. A few text stickers and I slipped it all into a bookmark sleeve, trimmed with a ribbon.
