wow, its been a while!

ive been mia for a week or is just toooooo hectic sometimes. i finally completed a layout - its been a little over a month since i worked on one and it felt good...kinda got me back in the spirit of scrapbooking since ive been mainly working on mixed media projects, collage art and painting. so it was a nice little pick me up...and i loved the way it came out...i swear sassafrass is probably one of my top 3 favorite paper lines...they have the most adorable embellishments and products! anyways ...heres the layout i just finished -

also - heres a little whimsy sweet nothing i created a few hours ago. i just adore copper foil tape :o)

i got that quote from the movie sweeney todd...which i love...that movie is very particular - either you really love it - or hate it....then again johnny depp makes anything look sexy...heh...and i am a big fan of tim burton...
well...thats about minds like fried out im going to sit on my bed, eat icecream and watch some tv....bye

what a hectic weekend!

soo...this weekend was very productive....i made quite a few pieces, some cards, a layout on top of taking care of my very energetic son...i just never get tired..they have such a energy about them that honestly i would love to have..but instead of having that energy playing with toys and such - id rather have it playing with my *toys* aka art supplies..heh.

i must say...browsing through the *blog world* is not only so inspirational to me...but viewing other peoples work is so special..seeing pieces that they put their heart and soul into...its just something only us artists can truly understand..:oP~

anyways...heres some Valentine cards that i made ; nothing spectacular...

also...heres a block i's a square wooden block...i altered it all around but heres just a few pictures of some of the sides ;

okie....finally....a canvas i created and another page to my *altered book* im making ;

for this canvas...i used tons and tons of layers....and did the *credit card swipe* take an old credit card and swipe desired color paint on it..and just drag it across the canvas...also...on top of swiping it across..i also swiped it down in quick motions..i like the effect it gives....

for this piece...i wanted it to be sort of *dreamy* ... a collage of elements that wouldn't make sense unless its in a dream...and what better quote to use then one of my favorite poets; edgar allan poe.... i just went buck wild on this one....a no holds bargain piece..and im satisfied with the results...i also have been on a used dryer sheets binge...i love the texture it gives ...and also when soaked in inks really absorbs color nicely...

well, thats it now for....:o) i hope everyone is enjoying their *sunday* ...with the whole superbowl and all...
