Catching with Mondays

I love doing these Gothic Arches. Fall is my favourite season when it comes to colour. I think I like the way this one came together. I've been thinking about it all weekend. I never get much art done on the weekend, but it's always on my mind. I didn't really get much done all last week either. I was in kind of a funk last week. I hope to be more creative this week.

Gift from Pam B

Here is a lovely gift I received from Pam Barnes. I love all the piercing on the card and the medallion on the card and atc. Makes it look like the lady has a Indian Headdress. The colours are great in the background. Thank you so much Pam.

Autumn Leaves

I just love fall or autumn especially the trees changing colours. Here in Ontario we have such beautiful colourful maples and other trees and shrubs. So here is a couple of atcs I worked on last night. They are simple in style but I think they make the point.

It's a banner day

The two atcs are school days. Times we have long forgotten is you are as old as I am. lol.
Today was a day of interruptions...if it wasn't the phone it was the doorbell, but I finally was able to get my atcs and banner done. I'm having fun with the pretty lady on this collage sheet from RetroCafe.

Catch Up Monday

My first domino experience. I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks and then stamped a clown head. Added a little clock, beads, a pin back and voila. This is for an exchange so I hope my partner likes it.
I haven't done too much in the last week, so this week is catch up week. There are several swaps I need to finish and get in the mail, so I hope I make the deadline. I will try to post more often this week. I've also started walking. Boy am I out of shape. I can only go around a short blog and my chins are screaming, my heart is pounding...but I must press on. It's good for me right?

All About Arches

Thought I would play with arches today. All the stores are showing fall now and the chilly weather make you feel like autumn is around the corner. Since I'm in a Harvest Moon swap, I played today with autumn colours and a little Halloween thrown in.

I'm still here...

Just a couple of things I created last week. I haven't been doing much these last couple of weeks and I feel stale. Managing a yahoogroup takes a lot of time, but it's worth it.
The first one is I Love Artchix atc. It's done on painted corragated cardboard.
The 4x4 is also painted corrigated cardboard. It's called Handmade with a twig from the garden. I think the poor bird needs feet. whoops...well he is up in the air. lol
