Here is a Pop-up card that I made for a friend.  I was inspired by "Stamptramp".

Mine is slightly different because I put a bottom on mine, but I can still fold it up to fit into an envelope.

New tag

I spent three days working on this tag.  It isn't suppose to a planned tag.  I just wanted to experiment with different materials.  It took me a long time trying different things out.  I'm not used to working with so many rubberstamps or rub-ons.  It's hard for me to "guess" what a good composition will be, so I just didn't care to see how different things work.  Working with just paper collage is easier because I can move things around.  Still I'm happy with it!  You'll probably never guess how I made the background colors!!!

Happy New Year!!!

I know it has been ages since I posted.  I could blame all that has happened in the last few months.  It has been, well, messed up.  Computer stuff, sickness, etc.  It has been a lot to handle.  I have been so happy though about a couple of on-line classes that I've been taking with Melody Ross.  I'll post a link.  These pictures are from her "Soul Book" class that I've done so far.  I'm in love with making little booklets!  I took her Soul Restoration class and she has PDF files with phrases, pictures, etc. that you can just cut and paste in.  That's what I needed then.  Just not to "think" about art and work on my soul.  This one I'm doing more artwork and each page I'm trying a bit of this and that, that I have not done before as far  as techniques.  It's been fun for me!!!  Even if you don't take one of Melody's classes, there is a lot of good information for you soul and well being on the site. http://bravegirlsclub.com/
That's all for now folks!  You can always catch me on Facebook if you run!!!  Happy New year!!!

Milk Carton houses!

Here is a milk carton house that I made about a week ago!  The bottom of it is a cube, about 2".  You can find lots of templates on-line.  I like this one because I can send it flat through the mail, though I'm keeping this one!!
