more art

Some more of my heart and soul.

Summer Time Is A Busy Time...

Yes, I do love the summer months. It brings many of my family members to come and spend their vacations with us. We are only 10 minutes from a few popular beaches and the board walks. There are many novelty shops and lots of dinning choices. When brother James comes I like to cook some of our mom's receipts. His son now drives and brings his GF too....I just love to hear the giggles and see that young love in full bloom.

I've had some time to draw and make art projects for one of my most favorite Artist Trading Card sites (ATC'sFORALL.COM)

I've made some matchbox art dolls and 4x4 chunkies and much more. What in the world would I ever do during my retirement years if I did have art. I can watch a good movie at the theater....Juli and Julia was superb....but waiting for my fav TV show is taking too long. Come on Survivor!!!!

Grandson Gage is getting so big and beautiful, naturally. I need to see him more often for sure 'cause they grow up way too fast.

Well, here's a few pic of what I've been making.

Altered CD/DVD'S for SueW's swap 2009

I have 3 altered cd's ready to send off to Australia for SueW's swap.

I sanded all most all the silver cd stuff off and then went and added silver alcohol ink and other inks. Then with the can of air I sprayed while wet and liked the results. The clip art is adhered with Crafter's Pick Decoupage....I like it because it's so clear and is not sticky. One of the CD's has layers on the front and back and is mostly transparent when held up in the light. Well, all of them are mostly transparent and that's why I didn't use lots of layers of papers and ephemera but I added lots of sparkels powders....they all are shinny and well protected.

I hope they are well received.
