More Swaps & Challenges (Picture Heavy)

Hi friends!  I haven't been blogging much lately (I've truly missed visiting your blogs!).  I've been out of town and playing catch-up with household stuff before going back to work.  Below are some of the swaps and challenges I participated in before I left for vacation.  Thanks for coming over to say hi!
These are the atc's I made for Kimberly's (ArtJoyStuff) grunge atc swap.  I made an extra one for Kimberly.

These awesome grunge atc's are what I received back from the following talented ladies (left to right).  Maggie, Sylvia and Sherry.

Pocket letter I made for my swap partner.

Adorable Pocket letter I received from Kim Overkamp (no blog).

Four ICAD's (Index Card A Day)

Two weeks of tags I made for Tag Tuesday.



I found the cute charm in the middle of the canvas below at Hobby Lobby on clearance.  I couldn't pass it up for 99 cents!  I painted the canvas, glued the charm in the middle and added flowers and glitter.  It's just something cute to put in my craft room.

I'm a big Nikola Tesla fan.  I ordered a 4th of July tee shirt from an etsy shop named The Mighty Squirm and they sent along, with the tee, an awesome Tesla postcard.  I had to do something with it, so I made a tesla collage on a burlap panel.  It's another little creation for the craft room.

Lots of Stuff, Again....:)

Hi.  I haven't posted in awhile.  I've been busy with summer home projects that needed to be done, but I did have a little time at night to be a little creative.  

I also just wanted to say thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your nice comments!  

Tag Tuesday.  I'm behind with my tags but I'm now caught up.

Splashes, Drips and Dribbles.  I'm a fan of Nikola Tesla and when I created this tag I thought of science.  I found this awesome steampunk image of Tesla on Etsy.

Ooh La La.  Need I say More!

Photography.  I wanted to use a real photograph for this tag.  This is a photo of a Great Blue Heron that I took while I was at Everglades National Park.

Summer of Color 2015 week 6 (last week).  Orange + Orange + Blue.

Lunagirl Moonbeams Challenge and ICAD

Hello.  Just a quick post!  I participated in another fun challenge at LunaGirl Moonbeams.  This month's challenge was Marie Antoinette.  I created the card below and it's on it's way to an awesome blogger who's birthday is right around the corner!  Below the card is another nature themed ICAD (Index Card A Day).  Tete, my friend, here's another creepy image for ya! :)  There was a question regarding the index cards.  The index cards are the plain ole' 4X6 size that you can buy anywhere.  They can become a little flimsy if you ink or paint them, so you might want to tape two cards together.  Well, that's it for now!  I hope all of you have a wonderful and creative rest of the week!

Summer of Color 2015 And ICAD

Happy Sunday friends!  I hope everyone had a wonderful and creative weekend?!

Below is this week's Summer of Color 2015 creation.  The colors this week were green + green + pink.  The aqua green color turned out to be more blue than green, but I didn't want to start over, so I left it as is.  I used a canvas board and a wooden frame from Michael's.

Another ICAD creation.  I'm having a lot of fun going with a nature theme with these blank index cards.

More Challenges And A Swap

Good morning!  I swear, summer is just flying by........It's getting to be that time to start creating for Halloween!  Yikes!  Anyway, here is my weekly challenge and sometimes swap post.

Last week's Summer of Color 2015 "colors" were red, red + metallic.  For some reason I thought of Scarlett O'Hara and her opulent home after she marries Rhett Butler.  Below is what I came up.  I Don't know why Scarlett's face has a smudge of aqua on it.  Our cameras do funky things some times!

The Tag Tuesday theme from last week was "faces."  The woman on this tag certainly has a stunning face doesn't she?

The Tag Tuesday theme for this week is "friendship."  I just love the cute photo of the two little girls and the quote is so true!

I'm continuing my nature theme with my index cards for Daisy Yellow Art Index Card A Day 2015.  These index cards are so much fun to make and if you're in a creative funk right now, go check out the link and create some index cards!  There are prompts you can follow, but I'm kind of doing my own thing.

Once you create one pocket letter, you'll want to create more!  This is a great way to use your stash!  Altered Pages hosted a Facebook pocket page swap and the theme was anything.  I chose a beach theme and below is what I created for my partner.

My partner, Lyneen James created this really cool African safari page for me.  I love all of the little elements and since I'm a BIG animal lover, it was right up my alley!  :)  If your interested in the whole pocket letter craze and would like more information you can go here.

Challenges and A Swap

Hi!  I can't believe I'm posting twice in one week!  I participated in a few challenges and an atc swap, so here goes!

Below is a Lunagirl Moonbeams challenge called "shoes."  I decided to use an old shoe ad from a Lunagirl collage sheet called Vintage Ads III.  I decided to make a card for this challenge.

Next is an ArtJoyStuff (Kimberly) atc swap.  The theme of June's atc swap was "My Own Style."  Below is what I created.

These are the lovely atc's that I received in return.  From counter clockwise:  Little Treasures by SylviaLiz - Lululiz in Lalaland and Jeanie Hatch (no blog).  

I'm also participating in ICAD (Index Card A Day), but not everyday.  I make these pretty, little pieces of art when inspiration strikes or when I have a few extra minutes to play.
