Organic Art?

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all okay out there.

I have something a little different from me today for you all although I do try to vary what I make (mainly to stop myself getting bored) but this is just something I really enjoyed creating with items I had to hand ;)

I've used all manner of different items on this including: recycled teabags, tie dye and tea dyed Calico fabric, hand pressed flowers and leaves from my garden, Vintaj brass pieces, hand made clay face from a mould....the list is endless.

I'll leave you with some close ups.











 I am entering this into the following challenges:

Paperartsy, Metallics

A Vintage Journey, Altered Art

Simon says Monday, Heavy Metal

That's Crafty! challenge - Fly Away

Hi everyone,

Yes I'm back already but this time it's for the challenge over at That's Crafty! with the theme of: Fly Away.

So we'd love to see anything and everything with wings please :)







I can't take any credit for the wonderful colours on the tag as my lovely friend Bibi, of huge Rubber Dance fame, sent me some tags with backgrounds so I could add my own little twist on them just for fun.
I added the stamping with some of my hand carved stamps and some doodling with a white Posca pen and I was quite pleased with it ;)

Rubber Dance challenge - Use your fave stamp



Hi everyone,

It's time for a new challenge over at the Rubber Dance blog and this fortnight's theme is:  Use your fave stamp.




Oooooh now this one was a little tricky for me to decide which of the wonderful Rubber Dance stamps I should use!! So I narrowed it down to the little bird from my Whimsical Summer set I designed for Rubber Dance and while I was creating I thought I'd take the cloud from the same set and turn it into an ice cream....as you do of course!!

So pop along and play and remember that you don't have to use just Rubber Dance stamps to join in :)

Size 8 tag, Rubber Dance stamps, Distress Oxides, Tim Holtz sentiment.
