Something to Share

I'm a bit late with this but wanted to share the holiday countdown over at Ten Two Studios . Some lovely images and free to download with the only catch being that you must post the link to your blog, web page or group so others can check them out as well. Enjoy

Thanksgiving Tag

This is my Thanksgiving Tag for the Holiday Tag book at the
Altered Designs group

Live The Life

My October open theme ATC for TGIF at Altered Designs. I love using Webster's Pages in my art.

Snow Day

As usual I am behind in my posting but that's what happens when life gets in the way. Not to mention the snow that is falling today. This is my ATC for the October Lottery (theme snowman) at Altered Designs.

Rain Mist

This weeks TGIF at Altered Designs was an ATC using Paint Chips. Our local hardware store had these neat paint chip samples that are actually stick on and this one is called Rain Mist. It is sort of a gray green colour but the scan doesn't do it justice.

Trick or Treat

At Altered Designs we are working on a Holiday Tag Book mingle with the first one being for Halloween. This is mine to swap out.

Sing, Dance, Take Joy

If Only I had Wings

I think this one is my favourite. The theme was Wings and I pulled things together from different places.

Starting with patterned scrapbook paper from Webster's Pages for the background. The upper most butterfly is from Dover and the other butterfly and the flower with Bee is copied from postage stamps. The sweet little girl is from a Lisa's Altered Art collage sheet and I cut into the patterned paper so that I could make it look like she was pushing the carriage. Last but certainly not least I stamped the saying using a stamp from Inka's Stamps (I think this has been sold but not sure where it went)


Another ATC for Altered Designs. This one the theme was Postage Stamp and I've used two stamps from the country of Burundi and placed them over a photo that I downloaded from the internet.

Back to School

The first of three recent ATCs done for Altered Designs TGI Fridays

Fabric ATC

Another ATC for Altered Designs TGIF. This one is done with velvet, embossed using the Spellbinders Impressibilities "Flower Silhouette"and then I used Luminarte's Polished Pigments and the Fabric solution to paint some of the flowers. The flourishes and the flowers not painted were touched with glitter pen. Enjoy! and thanks for looking.

Summer Fun

This is the ATC I did for the monthly lottery at Altered Designs. Our winner for June picked the theme for this month and chose "Boys". I used a free image from Cora over at Clearly Vintage that fit the theme and I thought fit the season. I resized it a bit and printed it and then used coloured pencils to add colour detail.
Enjoy! and comments are always welcome.

In a Secret Garden

This is my ATC for the Altered Designs TGIF this week. The theme was Risque and this is my interpretation. The woman, left butterfly and the roses came from collage sheets I purchased from Michelle at Digital Collage Sheets . The flourishes are Basic Grey rub-ons and the right butterfly is from a dollar store sticker sheet. The words are computer generated by me.

This weeks TGIF theme at Altered Designs is Hands. This is my interpretation.

Thursday, July 8, 2010


The theme for this ATC was Bookpage. Since I have trouble ripping pages
out of books I used a book I couldn't read anyway so I didn't feel so bad.

The Beach

This is my Lottery ATC for June at Altered Designs. The theme was at the beach and this one uses a piece of recycled junk mail as the background.

Hold onto Your Dreams

Another ATC for Altered Designs TGIF. This was an open theme and the background is sponged with Colorbox Chalk inks

Sing, Delight, Live

Another ATC done for Altered Designs. The theme for this one was Eyelets

Saturday, June 5, 2010


Another ATC for the weekly TGIF at Altered Designs. I missed last weeks but I'm early for this weeks. The theme was altered magazine page. Mine actually came from a Regals Catalogue because I only buy keeper magazines and I wasn't willing to cut any up.

This piece is done for a Monthly lottery on one of my groups. The requirements were 3 x 5 inch size Gothic Arch which I took a bit of liberty away from the standard shape. Also it had to incorperate a vintage lady which came from along with the flowers and butterfly images
