Art Inspirations - Hello, I am...

I enjoyed making this one. It is for the Altered Artspirations challenge at Scrapbook Graphics
 It is, at this time a double sided ATC, but I may actually end up making different backs for these and have 2 ATC's.




Click HERE for full credits, but I can tell you that most of the elements are from Holliwood's new 'Love and War' kit.

The weeks are busy! I hope to be back soon with my Art Journal Caravan pages (I have 2 outstanding...ack!)

Week 03 - Mend

I'm busy with painting the bg for the Week 02 page...it is a much harder page for me to get done...so here is the Week 03 one, with the key word "Mend"




You can see the gallery image here. Everything I used is by Gypsy Couture : 'Spunky Explosion'; 'Daydreamer'; 'Change of Heart'; Glitter Stamp Alpha; 'Tommy's Garage'; Country Christmas'; 'HoHo Retro'; Krafts Alphas & Grommet Flowers (both coming 21/01)

A New Species!

So I heard this random fact on the radio this morning about '40 new species being discovered every day'.

Hmmmmm I was going to comment but  had not had my coffe at that point HA! so I decided to let it be....

They did not however say anything about the new 'species' in the ScrapbookGraphics Altered Artspiration Gallery...

I 'discovered' this catepillar and added it to the gallery listings.
My week has not quite gone the way I had hoped (busier than I wanted to be) so I have not done the pages to for the journey yet. Those will be done shortly.

One Word - FOCUS

Here it is : the word that has been on my heart for this year : FOCUS.

I had intended to add more words to my page, but realized that many of the words would need their own page, so I stuck to just adding the final sentence that summed my thoughts up : "Be ruthless in achieving well chosen objectives."




I did the bg in Artrage in very much the same way as I would in my studio, then I took it into CS3 and played with a few brushes (Thao Cosgrove) and added the type. I enjoy having the option of working in both programmes, between them they offer amazing versatility.
