Is this weeks theme on 4 x 4 Friday. I covered my page with a map showing London and then added my image from an old book. I used Tim Holtz Crackle Paint around the edge then added a stamp. Finally I found the quote which I thought fitted in perfectly with the theme.
My Time To Crafts challenge this week is Pockets. I covered my tag in K & Co paper then made a little pocket and stapled it on. Added a mini tag made in the same way as the larger one, and added a quote and some buttons.
The picture makes it look so white, but the paper is actually white with green patterns on.

This weeks InchByInch challenge is Postage Art. I've been busy making inchies the past few days for a couple of swaps so this gave me a bit of inspiration. Two of them are stamps with a postmark stamped image on a background of paper painted with acrylic paint. The other is a stamp and postmark that came off an envelope which I thought looked quite good.
There is also blog candy to be won from this challenge by Purple Faerie.
The link is: http://purplefaeriepc.blogspot.com/2008/05/blog-candy.html
I created this house and thought I could incorporate 2 challenges with it.
On Dans Ma Maison this week it is... Le Couleur Verte (Green) and on Lots To Do the theme is Man's Best Friend. The background is various pieces of paper I had lying about and the image is by Crafty Individuals.

This is this weeks theme on Gothic Arches. Woul dyou believe that it's taken me 3 days to get this done!! I'm in the middle of moving so time is scarce. On Monday I stamped onto tissue paper then PVA'd it to my arch. I then forgot about it until last night. I then distressinked it and added some finishing touches. The effect looks much better in real life.

The challenge this week is ... Crafty Individuals. I rubbed distress ink on my mat then spritzed with water and rubbed my fat page into it to get a distressed look. I then stamped a Tim Holtz Flourish stamp on to my background.
I stamped my CI image onto mountboard then cut it into 3 moo size pieces then sprayed purple glimmer mist over it. Finally I added a bit of purple string onto 2 of the pieces.

The theme on 4x4 Friday is Masks and I've combined it with another challenge on TGIF which is paper rests.
I've used various pieces of paper and then stamped on one of my favourite stamps (the eyes) and also some script. Finally I added Leda from a piece of paper by Joanna Sheen and handmade my mask with lots of glitter glue.
I'm in the middle of moving as now, and as time is of the essence I thought that I could combine Saturdays Workout (Chalk It) with Sea-Gals Skinnys Oriental theme.
I stamped a fan on the skinny and coloured it with different coloured green chalks. The Oriental lady is also coloured in chalks.
