Pattie's Creations Challenge #98 - Altered or Recycled



The challenge this fortnight is "Altered or Recycled"
and as I had a few toilet paper rolls I decided to use
them.  I looked around the internet to get an idea of
what to do.  I finally decided to make pillow boxes
You can put sweets inside or a piece of jewelery or
anything small and give as a small gift.

Do take part in this challenge - just take note that you
should include any Digital or Stamped Image on your
creation! Stop on over to Pattie's ETSY Shop and have a look
at her many images. Don't forget to check out the Freebie First
Friday of the Month page. The Freebie will be available for
3 days, and then it will be removed from the site!
The challenge starts now and ends Thursday, September 4th 
at 1pm CST (Central Standard Time).
Have a look at this week's DT and their creations! You can check

blogs.

Mixed Media 1

Here is my first try at mixed media - and I must admit I
rather liked doing it.  I googled 'mixed media' to learn
a little what it is about, and then I roughly followed a
film on You Tube, teaching the subject.  I then went to
a 3-hour class and made my 2nd mixed media picture,
this time on canvas.  I shall put that picture up soon.
This picture was made using 240 gm drawing paper.

I used lots of pieces of paper,  lace, molding paste,
stencils, paint, cut out heart and painted it and went
around the edge with a black marker, small pieces of
two materials and for the words I used Tattered Lace
Retro Alphabet  and Spellbinders Shapeabilities -
Floral Flourishes.

The lovely doll is a digi image I bought called Birgetti
from C.C. Designs. I used seed beads on the sunflower
and then covered the center with Glossy Accents. Also
used Dot Sparkler Stickers from Stampendous.


Any feedback welcome.

Birthday Card For My 17 Year Old Grandson - Guess What He Is Keen On!

Haven't been here awhile, possibly because of the situation
here in Israel, but we have to carry on as normal as possible.
Here is a card for a grandson who is mad on Star Wars, and
collects Star Wars memorabilia. It is hard to make a card for
this age but I hope he will like what I have made.

If you haven't yet tried PhotoFunia, you should, it is fun to
use.  Just Google the word.

I have started doing some mixed media and when my first
attempt is ready, I shall add it here. There is a 3-hour course
being held, and I am seriously thinking of going - although I
think it is possible to learn everything through the internet,
which I mostly do.  But it would be nice to sit with others
doing the same as you. I'd better hurry up and book myself
a place.

Card For My 14 Year Old Granddaughter



This following card I made for my granddaughter, who loves
music and is learning to play the guitar and piano.  I used PS
this time and took the images from a CD.  Used Glossy Accents 
on the hearts.  I also made her a scrapbook page, which I will 
add here soon. 

Bought some molding paste yesterday and can't wait to play
with it!

A Guy Card



In a couple of days it will be bf's birthday and this is the
card I made for him.  With this card I've had a chance
to use some of the items which I received as part of
prizes from Core'dinations (just love their cardstock) 
and Scrapbook Adhesives (first time I have used their
products - and I like).  

I haven't been too active here lately, but that isn't because
I haven't been making cards.  Soon I shall add another
guy card.
