Random Cards

Some random cards that I have made over the last few weeks, there is much more work done in the last few months, but unfortunately I didn't photograph it all, very silly of me, oh well next time.

Nicoles 21st

Nicole and Tristan just friends.
Girlfriends from the left of the screen, Judith, Joanne, birthday girl Nicole,Jenny, Me and Michelle.
Mother and daughter, very happy showing the gift the above gave to her the ring and bracelet.

This is the card I made for another girlfriends beautiful daughter Nicole, she is the same age as my son Tristan and they went through school together in a lot of classes.

Back Again

I thought I had better try and show you all some of the work that I have been doing over the last few months , I have been very neglectful in attending to my blog.

This first piece of work was for a very good friends youngest daughter Sarah's 18th birthday,hard to believe this that I saw this beautiful young lady in hospital when she was born and look at her now.

Helens Birthday Pressies

I saw in local gift shop this idea, they had butterflies all over a canvas and were charging a fortune and I thought to myself, I can do that, but better, I went home and using Collection tiles covered them all in Collection papers, then with Tim Holtz new stamp and stazon, stamped the tiles and then onto acetate stamped them again and cut out. I bent the wings up and put just a little glue in the middle with some bling on the feelersand they were done.
Close up of the wings, sorry about the poor quality of the photo, but I had already put in the frame under glass and it was reflecting back.
Helen's card still going with the butterfly theme.

Beyond Altered Book Pages

This page is for Joanne, sorry about the flash glare but my camera isn't the best, one of the wings is lost in the glare but it is there. I painted the background and used some serviettes and more paint and a stensil.
This page is for Patsy, I used a page created at one of Ro's classes with some extra stamping and some added images and words.

More Arty-Oz Tags

This tag is for Donna, whom wanted the bird theme with the use of Tim Holtz products and Collections products, which I have used Collections papers, chipboards eggs and branch. tim Holtz products used were the stamps on the tags and lots of his dye inks.

This is the tag I did for Nicky,her theme was Birds, Forrest and Green, which I tried to cover all points, I hand painted some canvas for the front with stamps and decorated with a laser cut cage.

Arty-Oz Tag Swap

The Theme for this tag was Shabby Chic, and I struggled to get my head around it, but to me it means whites and creams and lace and buttons and peeling paint, so that is what I tried to achieve, I hope.
