Back pages of the book

Because the book was accordian folded, I thought I better finish off the back pages. I was going to leave them blank. So I just added some pictures and flowers to it and kept it simple. Since I last posted the front side, I found some lace to add. Just can't leave it along. Tonight I will pick a winner from the group.

The new revisions for the Time Out for Woman Book

I have now finished the book. I gave it a more of a feminine feel to the steampunk look. I hope you like it. It is going to be a gift on the Yahoo Group...Art For the Creative Mind.

The start of book in progress

I started this book without a theme, but now I think I will call it Time out for Women. I need to dress it up some to reflect women.

Book In Progress

There is still some embellishing to do, maybe tags to add or trim.

Atc "Hands of Time"

This is the 2nd atc for the same theme. Time goes so quickly in our lives...once you were a child and then time takes you on a life journey.

ATC "Time on Your hands"

Here is one of two atcs for a swap on Art For the Creative Mind Yahoogroup.

Gothic Arch "Under the Sea"

During the night I realized that I had packed this arch up to be mailed without taking a picture. I seem to do that alot lately and then my poor blogs are neglected. So here is my Gothic Arch titled "Under the Sea". I added all the fish and shells and then layed acetate over the top. Then I glued down the mermaid on a real shell and glued the shell over the acetate. I also added some Glossy Accents for bubbles in the water as well. I hope it makes it's long trip overseas without damage. I had so many ideas rolling around my head I had a hard time choosing which way I was going to proceed, but I think it came together nicely.

Cinderella's Slipper

I made this slipper from a template I found on a site. I cut out the slipper from black wedding print paper by Stampin'Up. Gathered crepe paper, lace, pearls, flowers and feathers were added to a romantic look. I hope you like my slipper.

Happy New Year

Sorry I have been absent from blogging. It was a rough year end. No time to create. I hope everyone is back in the swing of things. I'm looking forward to a creative year.
