All Bundled Up Teaser

These are two of the atcs I was making for the "All Bundled Up" swap which is to feature vintage images of children all wrapped up in their Winter clothes, but I liked them so much that I have decided I will keep them myself! Will show the others when they are completed (just a few finishing touches left to do).

I'm Back!

So much to do, don't know where to start! First of all I have to send this atc to the person who won this month's "Winner Takes All" in my Yahoo VintagePhotoImages ATC Group. The lucky winner receives an atc on their chosen theme from all members who sign up that month. This card will be winging its way to Carrie in the USA. Hope you like it Carrie!

Then I have to finish off 7 atcs in a new swap for the same Yahoo Group - "All Bundled Up" - I will post the finished atcs when done.

I also have a piece of artwork to get ready for consideration by Stampington & Co for a forthcoming special issue magazine "Marie Antoinette". I am very excited by this but have to prepare carefully.

As if that isn't enough to be doing, I have gone and signed up for a fabulous Paper Whimsy Forum Swap "Exceptional & Extraordinary Secret Sister Forgotten Vintage Treasures Swap Spectacular" . I will keep you posted on all these events.

Artwork using Gail's Grungy Hearts

Here are two tags and one topper made from one of Gail's Grungy Hearts digital collage sheets (Shabby Cottage Studio) with vintage images, text, ribbon or lace trim. These are now showing on Shabby Cottage Studio home page!

I have a few more of Gail's sheets to try out - hearts, torsos and grungy stars so watch this space.

I will be taking a break for a week from tomorrow, so bye bye until next week.

Look what arrived in the post today!

I received this swap from one of my Yahoo Groups in the USA today - the theme was "Ticket Please" and obviously a ticket or rubber stamped ticket image had to be used on each atc. I think they are all wonderful and can't wait to get started on the next swap I will be joining in with - one of my favourite themes: Marie Antoinette.

Mind Wide Open September Challenge

The challenge this month was to use the left hand image creatively with the word prompt being "Boo". My entry is the picture on the right, having been digitally altered with various free Photoshop brushes picked out in colours from the original background.

Voting ends at midnight on 14th September.

Hey, just trying to get to grips with setting up my blog.  It is a bit of  a minefield when you are not very techie minded!  If anyone has any tips, they would be gratefully received.
