I made these for Beccy's Art Deco Fat Page swap.

You've been framed

I did this frame for the weekly challenge on the Lots to do Forum.
I had this old frame in the shed for years, it was silvered coloured plastic, so I used alcohol inks to brighten it up and then added a piece of encaustic art that I did ages ago. I was quite plesed with the results.

Jacobs ladder

These are the ATC sized cards I made ready to make into a Jacobs ladder for the lots to do Forum charity auction.
The theme for the ladder is Vintage.

Secret card

This is a 'secret card' that i made. The overall card is a slim line size.
When first opened it appears to be a normal popout card, but, the center also opens to reveal another layer.

Multi layer card

Just to prove that Beccy and I did actually make something when we were together, this is one of the cards we made.
The first image is of the cover, the 2nd image is the inside and finally the card fully opened.

Blog Challenge

This is my item, an altered matchbox for the Lots to Do blog challenge. The theme was key's. I made the box using a template downloaded from the internet.
I covered the box with TH paper and distressed using ink and crackle paint, while the crackle paint was still wet i stamped into it using stazon. I added a key which I also distressed with crackle paint and inks.
On the inside bit, I again used TH papers and attached a distressed key with a brad and jump ring to make a pull thingy.

Altered bits

I decided that my kitchen widow needed a bit of an uplift, so thought I would jazz up a few bits that generally just sit there looking dull and boring.
The first piece I did was the photo frame, it started out as being a dull silver colour, the soap dispenser was next, that was originally white ceramic. Then came the vase! all were done with alcohol inks, same colour combination and same technique, but they all look a bit different! but look stunning sat side by side on the window sill! (just need to get the curtains back up now!)

Reverse stamping in soot

For this piece I placed a few peel offs onto the card before sooting. i then set the soot with hair spray before removing the peel offs.
I then sponged on some red ink into the image just to see what effect it would have, not bad but the photo is pants!

In The News

This is my effort for the Lots to do weekly challenge. I have used copper pearlescent card for the base with a piece of textured handmade paper matted on top.
I stamped 2 butterfly images onto news paper and mounted them onto the ATC with Silicone to give them a lift, I also added wire for the antena's (on acount of having accidently cut the original ones off!...oops!)

Sooty Tag

I thought I would give it another go with my favourite stamp, sorry but the photo does not do it justice.

Stamping in soot

I thought I might give the stamping in soot technique a go, after seeing the sample on Hilda's blog. The technique was so easy to do, and the results quite stunning! Not the best of results, but I was pleased with it, just need a bit more practice.

I did give Mum a bit of a scare though! she thought I was about to set the house on fire!
