Rusty Collections

The new pic is a set of 4 Collections houses in a frame.
Really hard to scan, but, it has a great rusty butterfly on top & it is hung by a rusty chain.
I know everyone who sees this must think I only make Collections 'stuff', well, I don't, but I do love Julies goodies & find myself drawn to them most times when I am in the mood to create.

Firstly I want to thank my lovely friend Bevlea for the great banner she designed for my blog page. I really love it Bevlea, such a giving friend!
Secondly,I am involved in an Art Doll swap and I agonized for ages over what I should make.
I just cannot do pretty, no matter how hard I try, so thought what can I do?
Whilst mulling things over I opened a box of 'stuff' and in it were some lovely brown feathers.
Immediately I began to think 'Bird'?
Then, on my desk lay an old & aged cupboard door pull & my thoughts went to 'NEST'.
So, my new creation was born.
I have named her "MOTHERING", hope you like her.

I joined an ATC swap run by Marion from Germany.

The theme is 'Postage People"

I had a few problems as I didn't have a lot of suitable stamps, but, am reasonably pleased with these results.
I, like a lot of others, am insecure about my art attempts, so, I sent pictures of my ATC's to a friend and took her comments on board.

Why am I so insecure???

Maybe because I am not trained, can't draw a straight line or paint properly.
But, I love collage, stamping etc, so will just have to remind myself, that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' and continue to do what I do, 'cos it make me HAPPY!!!!!

I have been soooooooo busy lately, some family issues & trying to get all my swaps done as I am off overseas soon.

I am involved in a Mermaid Book for a group, so here is the page I have produced.

I used lots of Impasto Medium, paints, beads, Moon Glo etc. I am thrilled with the result, now, can't wait to get the finished book back!
