New 'E' store!!

Two great Australian girls, Maxine & Audrey have opened up a brand new 'E' store called Wednesday Wishes. I have placed my first order & am eagerly waiting my goodies.

They have a great selection of Creative Kits, art moulds, die cuts & much more. Go take a look!

Made this today, quite a departure fom my usual style. I do however like the darkness of this piece. I think it apt that I try something different.

Let me know what you think.

Just finished making this piece, using Collections products, paints, Impasto Medium, masks etc.

It will be in the post tomorrow, travelling a loooooooong way away to someone who has been rather ill lately, but, who is slowly on the mend.

Hopefully, she(who shall remain a secret), will like it.

Today, our darling, nearly 16 year old doggie, Olivia, went to doggy heaven.

I cannot write in words how much we love her. So, farewell our beautiful girl.

We will always love you.

I love Collections Products & when the new 'stuff' was released, I bought heaps.
Mostly, I hoard, but, I decided it was about time to start creating.

I have been browsing a few blogs & saw some amazing art, then, last week, I went to 'The Scrapbook Scene' here in Melbourne and saw a great little piece of art made by the owner Janet.

So,using her art for inspiration, I made this piece. The back is a Collections transparency, as is the frame, the dress form & wings. I painted the frame & the dress form with Goldens Micaceous Iron Oxide, then rubbed over it with some silver lustre rub ons. I painted the wings with some silver paint, then stamped over everything & embossed.

I really like this, now, to give it to a special friend of mine!

Here are 2 more pages from the City scapes book.
Not great scans.(Reminder to myself:"Need a new printer/scanner!") Doesn't really show the transparency background on the first one, but, it's OK.

City Scapes Book Update

Have nearly finished my City Scapes Book in the Gothic, Mediaeval, Religious theme, so alien to me at first.
I had some help with words from Bevlea, and, found that once I got 'into' the theme, it came along really easy.
Would love some comments!


I have been challenged by Barb.
I have to go to the 4th folder in my photos & upload the fourth photo to my blog.
So the pic here is an ATC I made for a swap on Paperarts Yahoo group.
The photo is a picture of my Dad, Neville, when he was in his early twenties.
My father died nearly 30 years ago & I don't have many pictures of him at all, so I treasure this photo.
The last words say it all!
The next part of the challenge is to pass it on to four other bloggers.
So here goes:
& Jen:
Lets see if these bloggers take up the challenge.
