A few Little Cards

Just thought I'd post some photos of my latest batch of gift cards just so you know I'm not sleeping.

ATC Swap...anyone up for it???

True to being the slacker that  I am, I am only just getting round to posting about an ATC swap that I was supposed to organize on behalf of our decorative artists association.  I thought it would be a good idea to expose some of our members to the joys of ATC's and what better way than to announce it to the world. 
Our small group of artists have been swapping ATC's for a little while now but sad to say, we are getting a little bogged down and would like some inspiration.  The theme for the swap is A Splash of Turquoise and the usual rules apply.  Just do 9 of the same and add them to a folder and send to me.  If you would like to participate just let me know and I will send you my address.  I think a month to do them is pretty feasible.  To those girls whose have already given me their ATC's don't despair!  I'm sure we'll get some interesting submissions (please don't let me down blog friends!) LOL!

A little inspiration

We all need a little outside inspiration don't we?  A couple of weeks ago I went over to Pages2Scrap my local (aren't I lucky) papercraft store and did a workshop with the amazing Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door.  Here is the finished product:
The canvas measures 20cm x 20cm or 8 x 8 inches and the individual tile measure 5 x 5cm or 2 x 2 inches.  Each tile was treated with a different technique using Viva Decor texture mediums called Terra, Ferro and Croco and Viva Decor Precious Metal Colours.  Here is a close up:

I really enjoyed this workshop and it certainly helped getting the creative juices flowing.  Thanks Rachel!

A little late

I made these a little while ago and took the photo on my iphone.  I think the photo is ok.  Now I just have to work out how to post straight from my iphone to the blog.  Yes Trin more coming!

Come sit, stay, talk awhile

Life is hectic isn't it?  I'd love you to come and have a cuppa with me.  Look I've baked a cake!  Drop in and have a chat.  I'd love to hear what you've been up to.
