My fun tag

Here is my version of a tag by Shannon Sawyer I saw in Stampers Sampler Aug/Sept 2010. What a great issue. I admire Shannon's work. There is also some great art by Barbara Smith, and Nancy Gene Armstrong. Barbara made front cover..that's is neat.

My newest tag book

Just finished this tag book for my friend Debby H. I hope she likes it.

Dream a little creativity canvas

I've been itching to try my hand at a little mixed media canvas. It was really fun to put it together. I got the similar idea in a magazine from the UK and the artist is Linda Elbourne. I hope she doesn't mind my take on her canvas. I'm calling mine Life-Create a Dream. I was thinking about all the things that pull you along in your life. Time, a compus, locks and keys, nature all crowns you in your journey in life. Make your dreams come true. Don't be afraid to venture out and enjoy the journey.

The canvas was painted with different colours of red in acrylics. Grungepaper was embossed with different styles and cut in 2" squares and coloured with Tim Holtz Distressed inks using Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick. All embellishments came from stash.

Black and White Tag

The 2nd Black and White tag for the tag swap. I love black and white...always so striking.

Last of the Zentange Swap

The coloured one is by Dee R. There is even some bling on it that you really can't see in the photo. The others are from Sara M. I love the backgammon looking one. This was a great swap on the group "Art For The Creative Mind" I think everyone had fun with these. It was new to most players. That's a good thing. It brings out your creativity to learn knew things and not be afraid to put that first foot forward into the unknown.
