Next a couple Photo Art Projects:
This probably looks familiar because I used this same lady and bird to do an ATC. Here she is glued to chipboard and is a stand up decoration.
Onto Some ATC'S:
I did the background on this with the Dylusion inks (Love them). Then I stamped the image of the house and colored it in using sharpie markers.
This was inspired because my sister likes owls. So what better than a whole collage of owls? Then I used Washi Tape to finish off the sides and give it a border.
While I was doing Google searches for owls, I came across this guy and he just looked like he had bed head and wasn't happy about it.
Next Are A Hodge Podge Of Items:
I was simply playing with some new stencils that I had just bought and thought that this came out beautiful. Unfortunately the photograph doesn't show the gorgeous richness of the colors.
I made this because I watched the following YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yP2kGHQGTjU. It is amazing. I didn't use the Tim Holtz "Artful Dwellings" die cut, but I did use the brick embossing folder and the Martha Stewart lace border punch for the roof. I cut my own house and roof by hand. Then embossed it with the brick embossing folder and inked it using the Tim Holtz blending tool and vintage photo distress ink. I cut the windows and door from some tags that I had inked previously. I used a black marker to go around the edges and frame in the windows and then a white paint pen to go around the outside of each. I had a spider web stamp that I used in the bottom two windows. I love how it turned out. Now I just have to figure out what project to use it in.
This is the front of the card. Notice the numbers at the top left. They are the mirror image because I didn't pay attention to which side was going to receive the embossing when I put it in the folder. Oh well, I still love the metal look to it.
Playing in my journal:
I was practicing drawing eyes and this is what the page turned into. The eyes are colored with Distress markers and sharpies (the sharpies bled through the back of the paper). I colored the background in with water color pencils and then used my water brush.
This is a new Tim Holtz Alterations die cut that I bought. I just can't seem to put the bird in the cage. He NEEDS to fly free. Anyway ,I embossed his wing with a Cuttlebug folder. and then distressed it with distress inks and a blending tool.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51xEsr5HtEg My flowers didn't come out anything like hers but I am still happy with them. I obviously did not have the same flower punch that she used. I tried her method with two different punches that I did have and put a button in the center of the bigger one and a brad in the center of the smaller one. I am sure that I can find a fun project to use these in.
