Altered Box

I've made this little altered box as a birthday present for a friend. It's wooden and was originally white with a sickly flower motif on the lid. I sanded and Lumiered it and added the tin heart to the lid. Inside I added the metal globe (from a keyring) surrounded by those irritating ping everywhere accent beads! Then I just added the quote and pic. It's inside is about 3/4" deep so the scan isn't very good.

This is a postcard I made from my scrap box this evening while I was tidying the work room! :-D

This is my spread in the latest round of the Everyday Book RR on my Yahoo group. This time the theme was colours of spice/exotic which I struggled with a bit but this is what I came up with! And can I just say I love good old tomato puree tube! LOL


These are some ATCs I did for a swap at my book group on the theme Precious Things. I chose to use family photos for mine. I did these on the day they were due so they're quite simple!

AB Spread

This is my spread in a women themed ATC book for an RR I'm in. I'm really pleased with this as I don't do drawing and even though she's a bit flat faced in a boxer sort of way, I still love her! I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to achieve for this spread and for once it has worked out more or less how I'd thought!

Accordian book

I am SO relieved to have finished this piece! I don't think I have ever been so stuck on any other piece of artwork. ;-( I think I worked out why I was stuck but that's not important, what is important that it will shortly be on it's way to it's new owner! Yippeeeeeeee! So, the challenge theme was growing old and I've made this accordian book to fit a tin I picked up at a junk stall. Having been so blocked over it I find it impossible to be objective about it now so I'm making no comment on it at all!! Pics show the tin closed, the tin open showing the front of the book and front and back views of the book.
