ATC play

Tank is the nickname I had as a toddler...not much kept me from going where I wanted to go. I was determined...what some call stubborn. Of course I am so different today...LOL
the other ATC is a cool image I found of a moon clock face in a magazine...I have had it for a long time and finally decided to do something with it.

Mermaid Treasure Box

This is another project I finished today. I took a tin...(similar to an old Altoid) and spray painted it midnight blue. I inked the lid with color box fluid chalk ink, stamped a head and torso from Outsidethemargins Art Parts stamp set and created an embossed tail to go with it. The jute is applied around the lid with red liner tape. the sea wead is sprayed with color mists and cut into narrow strips. I also added poney beads to the bottom for feet.

The Lady of the Night...Dances

As a designer for, I am sent glorious items to play with and hopefully come up with something that shows the products in use.
This past year I have been busy with my DH's health and have not been very productive for the on line store. Aileen, the owner has been so patient and understanding but my personal goal was to get back into the swing of things and start using some of the items she has sent me to play with.

The items I used from her store today are:
tic tac toe board
a variety of color mists...especially my favorite...copper kettle
a variety of cats eye pigment chalk pads
a pottery 3-D moon ornament painted in metalic gold
arms and legs from her body parts stamp sheet

this was a really fun project that had no idea what it was going to be until it was finished....I just pulled things out and started putting them together.

hope you enjoy my day of whimsey.

Sun Muse

I took the bottom half of a butter knife and glued some thrift store earrings to the front. I polished it and drilled a hole to hang it from my art tree.
this one is just under 4 inches long and is the perfect size for the tree.
I hope to have full tree by the end of the month.

a Gal needs to color....

My friend, Aileen, over at
has a challenge to do a bit of coloring.... something we all supposedly learned to do in our formative years...
she allows you to download a black and white page of her newly designed logo and color it. This is what I came up with using some markers, pastels and colored pencil and yes...that is glitter.

More Silverware Art

I had DH cut a fork in half and bend the tines. I again used some grunge board for the wings...decorated with twinkling H2O's. The head is a clay piece. The bottom of the fork shined up really pretty...(scan doesn't show how shiney it really is) and I can use it as an oranament on my art tree or wear it as desired. DH also drilled holes in the rest of my spoons and flattened some ...I have images on those right now but will not dress then until a later time...stay tuned.
