My October Swaps

 I have been taking more time to make art just for the fun of it. So worth my time! This month I wrangled some friends into a mask swap and an ATC swap.

Here is what I came up with for my mask.

I used MME Kraft patterned paper, and the swirls are cut from a piece of WeRMemoryKeepers paper.
 I love the softening of the traditional black, purple, and green Halloween colors. It's hard to tell in this picture, but the inky shading looks almost orange.

The eyelashes are Maya Road rub-ons, and the star is from a paper mache wand that I cut in half and covered with flocked paper.

This next mask was made by my friend Debbie. :) I LOVE what she came up with. The eyelashes are amazing, and that creepy spider is the perfect accent.

 I see she used bits of metal by Ten Seconds Studio. Very clever. 

These are her ATCs. They have amazing layers, and they're so wiry and dark.

Here is my set. My theme for myself was owls because I have a ton of them that I've been hoarding. :) I love 'em.

I rolled the little felt flower and topped it with a pearl. The branch is inked and covered with Martha Stewart beads.

This one was made from the top of a left-over tag. It has a cute fold that she will be able to tuck something into. I stamped a starry background, and layered the insides with batty patterned paper.

 I wanted this one to look creepy wispy spider web. I stamped a web over vellum and then covered it with a bit of glitter. The web is layered over a painted tree, and then I topped it all with brown scraps from my stash.

Hope you like. :) Happy Scrapping.

Artistic Journey

October is quickly sneaking by, but it has been very productive so far. :) I have ten pages left for my custom order, and have been feverishly working to finish it by tomorrow. Here are a few projects I've squeezed in between pages.

October is breast cancer awareness month. PFOP held a joint handmade card auction to raise money for local awareness campaigns, and I contributed this card.  

I also attended Maya Road's Artistic Journey at The Crafty Scrapper. It was SO much fun sitting with girlfriends and putting kits together. They all made fun of me for being slow, but I don't mind too much because I am happy with how my projects turned out.

These pics are from Lisa Pace's class. She is the sweetest, and her projects are so detailed and beautiful. 

Here's a peek of my finished project. I will get a better pic in the sunlight soon. 

Here's an acrylic album I made. I love the blue mixed in with the Autumnal colors. Going to put it on eBay or Etsy this week. 

And I made this friendly Little Monsters paper bag album. I LOVE how it turned out. The colors are fabulous. It's on eBay if you're interested. 

Oh, and I am teaching

how to make this album 

 tomorrow at The Crafty Scrapper. The class sold out, but you can buy a kit. :)

Happy Scrapping!
