Grunge tags

These are some tags I made for a swap. One is also for a friend. I love playing with Glimmer Mist. When I'm in the mood everything in sight gets a squirt. I also love to embellish. I never know when to stop.

Flash from the Past

Recently I scanned my mother's photo albums. What fun it was to look back and try to remember 'when'.

Silhouette ATC

I'm trying to figure out what words I can use on it to describe it. Anyone know a small quote about shadows? I don't know the brand of this stamp now that the packaging is gone.

Playing with crayons

I found this on someone's blog. Sorry I forget who it was, so all the credit for this idea goes to her. It was fun to do. Not sure if I will add something else to it or not. It's kind of abstract the way it is.

Art For The Creative Mind Yahoo Group

I just have to promote this group. It is a small group but very chatty. The main focus is on swaps. This past couple of months we have completed several wonderful swaps.
Here is a sample of them. Memory Glass pendents 1"x3"; Memories of the Titanic ATCs; African Inspired Greeting cards; Mandala on 4" round; Gothic Arch "Casa Blanca; Cigar Box "Memories of the Past"; Dorothy, Where are you" shadow box in an old book; an on going Rolodex Card swap; Altered Tins; Altered Jars; Mouse Traps and a house shaped book. We also have just completed a Round Robin Altered Book. It's been a wonderful couple of months.

If you like to be inspired and busy..check out this group.

Altering tins can be fun. Using Graphic 45 "Once Upon a Springtime" collection, this tin just created itself. It's easy to create when Graphic 45 does all the work with their wonderful collections. This is another swap for the west coast.

Rat Trap

I thought I would make this rat trap all about Halloween. Using Graphic 45 papers and embellishments from stash. The rosette is made using Graphic 45 as well. I hope my partner likes it.

Memories of the Titanic

This was the name of the ATC swap on Art for the Creative Mind Yahoo Group. There was so many ideas that could be used for this swap. 100 years since the disaster.

Just a little thing

Playing with Memory Glass and collage sheets. This is a pendent sent to my partner on a swap.
Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo Group is a great place to have fun with many different swaps and where great friends meet. Become a friend too.
