Almost Halloween...

Hey All, Just a quickie post as my 
Mojo seems to be flying wild this week!

Been spending a lovely few days with the
weather change to 'brr' setting....grin.

Lots of cut and paste work instead of digital
pages for a bit....

Came across some old photo's from the blog
on Facebook of a series of Tryptic 2x2's  we all
used to do for swapping and it gave me an idea....

Using graphics from Tumble Fish Studio (Retired), and some Itkupilli from Mischief Circus, 
I made up this little Halloween inspired Tryptic ....

I've been on a binge of saving cardboard from recycling
lately. Cereal boxes, and such, and have been making my
own 'blanks' of Inchie's, 2x2's, 1x3's, and ATC and Post Cards.

So looking at the little Tryptic Witch then, I was trying to
think of some way of incorporating it into another projects...

So I incorporated the Tryptic's onto a 4x6 Post Card.
Made it a little more interesting and another way
of using up all that cardboard....HA!

Lots of other projects on the go as well, tons of ATC's.
I'm a member of Teesha Moore's 'The Astronauts Club'
and she has a ton of wonderful graphics to have a play with.
So between my love for Crowabout StudioB, and Tumble Fish Studio, (Retired), and Itkupilli at Mischief Circus, 
now I've incorporated some of Teesha's wonderful graphics
into some of my ATC making this week....
here's a few of them ....

And also some Post Card Collages .....

Just love how all the graphics from so many
designers just seem to fit together.

I also received a lovely order of some new Washi Tape
with an oriental motif...which set me off ....grin.....

again, incorporating 2x2's onto the ATC's...

I just love the graphics from Itkupilli...
and love my new Washi Tapes ...

So that is what I'm up to this past couple of weeks.
I'm also knee deep into the latest workshop from
Dispatch from L.A.
in bookmaking...one of my favourite things to be
doing, so I'm busy ping-ponging between 
cut and paste, and sewing paper...
not a bad way to stay busy ....

So BIG Thank You's to all the Fabulous Designers
at Tumble Fish Studio, and Crowabout StudioB
Itkupilli and Teesha Moore's The Astronauts Club
You all keep me out of trouble....HA!!!

Just a few more days....and it'll be 
Halloween!!  Be safe and have a Great one!!!

October Already!

Hey All
With all that is going on in the media this past
couple of weeks, it's hard to parlay any joy or fun
in life currently, as I am sure it is effecting many
of you too.

But today I just had to find some art time for myself,
and have had a day of it, with the t.v. turned off,
(watched early a.m. and decided not to watch any further),
so I thought I'd share some of what I accomplished 
today to maybe inspire you to find some time 
just for you too :)

I've had a flurry of making ATC's and Post Card Collages...
Using a myriad of wonderful graphics from predominantly 
and some

All Brilliant and Wonderful Artists the lot of them!

I love making ATC's and Inches and 1x3's and 2x2's...grin

Great Fun as it's all quick ideas to put together
without a real commitment of major time...

And usually, I find, while making the mini arts pieces...
that leads me to other ideas....

While making the ATC's this one, using Crowabout StudioB and Teesha Moore Graphics
I decided I liked it so much I wanted to have it out in the art room
to see it.

I had ONE LEFT of 
Chunky Dimensional ATC Kits

and in a lovely hour of some fun art time....

...some glues, scrapbook papers and the ATC 
I made, I was able to mount it on the ATC Block...

Now to find just the right spot to hang it up on the
wall in the art room....space is at a premium! LOL!

So that's what I have been up too....
...and I'll post a few more pic's of some of
the Collage Post Card Arts I've been making
to hopefully inspire you too...

'Art Cow'  ... grin...
