Just working on restocking my etsy store while my hubby does some upgrade work at my office today. I did these pendants awhile ago, and not sure why I haven’t listed them yet. (Most likely because it’s work to list and I procrastinate.) Anyway, the moon pendant on the right was made the same way […]

‘LOVE’ ATC’s. I made these for a swap I am in with the Altered Art Obsession Yahoo Group. We were to interpret, love. Not a great photo, but I did this in several layers. First, I printed out a transparency sheet of the hearts (which I drew and scanned into photoshop) on my inkjet printer. […]

I recently made an ATC envelope template for a swap I am in and thought I’d post it for others to use. The sixe is 8.5X14″ (legal paper size). I printed directly onto cut pieces of scrapbooking paper and ran it through my inkjet and then trimmed and glued. Enjoy!

Look what I just learned how to do. 🙂 I took a bunch of my photos of my altered books and journals and made a slideshow with Slide. I’m probably one of the last people to make my own slide show. It was actually very simple! Anyway, these are photos from a round robin True […]

I got a hankering to work on some ceramics pieces this past weekend. These are bisque fired cork toppers. I just drew the black lines first, and will color them next weekend. After the color goes on, I’ll fire them to cone 06, then apply the transparent glaze and refire. I’ll post the next stage […]
