Handmade Backgrounds

Well, I cannot believe how long it has been since I posted on my blog! So unlike me... but I was in the UK for 2 days after my Copenhagen trip and then was off to Chicago again on business and got home Saturday! Sounds glam but hotels and taxi rides is pretty much it - but I met some great people from my company and it was an excellent course so most definitely worth the trip!

So this week the theme for Arty Girlz is handmade backgrounds. I made this card as a spin off from my canvas I made for my best friend Julie - same concept - using vaseline and acrylic paint.... I finished them off just last night (honestly I didn't know the theme). It is in my favourite colour - I really should move away from purples :)

Many thanks for stopping by x

Arty Girlz Black and White

Once again another great challenge from Arty Girlz - this week the theme is black and white and I love doing black and white - so here is my contribution for this week.

I made this piece a few weeks back but I only just got back from a business conference in Copenhagen today so I am cheating and submitting this as my entry :) And here is proof of me hard at work...

TGIF - Faces

The theme for Thank God It's Friday this week is faces - I made this a while ago but it is perfect for the theme. The image is stamped onto acetate then gold leafed.

Walk Like an Egyptian

So the theme this week for Arty Girlz is triangles, and here is my contribution. I made it a couple of weeks ago for a challenge and it seemed the perfect opportunity to display it. I have been fascinated by Ancient Egypt since I was a little girl - did school projects about it and even wrote a novel about it (which I submitted as part of my GCSE English many moons ago). I went to the Tutankhamun exhibition last week and the British Museum so it has brought back all those wonderful thoughts.

The stamps are by non-sequitur.

I have taken a few shots due to its 3D nature - enjoy!
