ATC Wednesday

I've only just found this challenge blog so thought I'd give it a go seeing as it's a Free theme this week.
Covered my card in a page from a book then covered it in acrylic paint. Then added the extras.

Fat Page

This is my first Fat Page for a while and as I had fun the other day doing the Bandana Technique, I thought I'd stick with that. All stamps on here are by PaperArtsy.

Do I Look Pretty?

I made this canvas which fits in with 2 Challenges this week.... Alter a Canvas on BAA and You've Been Framed on LotsToDo.
I finally managed to find some smallish canvasses after months of looking and off I went. I painted the backside of the canvas with acrylic paint and then added some meshy stuff that I had. Using a Adirondack inkpad I gave it some colour then in various places I added some distress crackle paint.
Finally I added my bits and bobs. Am really pleased with the way it turned out (much better than the rubbish photo that I've managed to take of it, lol)

This is the theme this week over at LotsToDo Challenges. I used a piece of skirting board that we had left over and sanded it a bit before adding some distress crackle paint. I then added my embellishments and picture.
Sorry about the bad picture.

These tags are for a swap that I'm taking part in where the theme is 'Faces'. I loved the technique that I used in my previous post so decided to go for that look.
Thanks for looking.

Peeled Paper

On 2cre8art, Peeled Paper is the technique to try. I decided to make a tag and then stamped and distress powder embossed the image. I stamped my image onto card and coloured her in using Distress inks and then covered her in PVA glue. Once dried I stuck her down and then added the circles using white acrylic paint.


These are for a swap that I'm taking part in on LotsToDo. After seeing my friend Sams' Bandana Technique ones I thought I would do some myself.
Thanks for looking.

Green Newspaper!!

For my first blogging of 2009 I thought I would combine 2 challenges this week..... Sunday Stampers 'Green' and Lots To Do Challenges 'In The News'.
I used the Clear Tape Technique using some old newspaper and then coloured it with Alcohol Inks. To finish I stamped over it using a PaperArtsy stamp and added my ickle girl and the words.
Thanks for looking.
