Wed Stamper - Be Square

This weeks theme over at WS is squares.

This is a page I've been working on for a fabric round robin book which belongs to the uber talented Jo W and is actually the back page (see this previous post to see the front page).

To be honest, I've yet to add something to the right hand corner yet to "finish" it off and it needs a "hidden treasure" which is the theme of all the books. But I think I'll work on that tom as it's late and I need to hit the sack.

Night all and thanks for looking.

CHECK THIS OUT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Is this AWESOME or is this AWESOME!!!!! This stunning piece of art is from my friend Julie H (check out her blog) as part of a swap that I'm hosting on INKredibly RT. The swap is basically that we pair up with somebody and we create a piece of artwork using the back of a stretched canvas (the niche) and send that to our partner. So the above is my STUNNING piece from Julie. Now all I have to do is make something as sensational as this to send back to her :-)

MMMM - Maps

Made the above "farewell" card for a friend who is leaving town (very very sad as her boy and my boy are besties), but unfortunately that's part and parcel of living in a very transient town (mining town). Tried to make it as bright and happy as I could, as the whole family are just gorgeous and bubbly/happy people. They will be greatly missed.

Anyway, this weeks theme at MMM is maps, so I have used maps on the pot and flower petal and then smushed over them with oil pastel crayons.

Thanks for looking :-)

Another Fridge Magnet

Finally finished both fridge magnets that I was making as birthday presents. The one above is of my DD No.1 and I'm inspired to make the same for my own fridge (when I've finished off all my other committments of course :-)

Wed Stamper - Art

This weeks theme over at WS is ART. I have made the house below as a birthday present for a family member and the picture is of my son. This is a fridge magnet and the stamping is located on the right hand side of the frame.

The houses are Collections along with some of the papers I've used.

Thanks for looking :-)

Fabric Book Page + MMM

Below is one of my pages for the Fabric Book Swap that I'm participating in with a fabulous group of gals from all over the world. This page measures 13cm x 13cm and is for the very uber talented Jo W . Check out her blog for more piccies from her book so far. I'm not sure if this is going to be the back page or the front, as I'm still working on the "other" page (we have to do two pages for each gal, ie back and front).

And co-incidentally this ties in with this weeks theme over at MMM which is transparencies. My transparencies are underneath the letters A R T.

The trees have been hand stitched and the rest of the stitching has been done with a sewing machine. Yep me using a sewing machine!! Dont ask me to take any pants up
though :-)

MMM - Paint

This week over at MMM I have the pleasure of being the guest host. Of course seeing as I'm using it in just about everything I do these days, i picked the theme paint.

Here's what I made for this theme using an 8" x 10" canvas board:-

Thanks Diane for asking me to host.

Also this painting is for sale at my etsy shop which you can see here.
