So even though I'm still revising as my hard and fast deadline approaches, I've been taking more evenings off to do exciting things like see Ocean's Thirteen, paint the bedroom, go grocery shopping, and hang. Last night, Ptichka and I went to a stitch in bitch. Three people knitted, one just hung out, one drew plans for a cloth book, and two of us (Ptichka and I) cut paper.
Below is a scan of the first ATC I've made in Winnipeg.
acrylics, scrapbooking paper, Indian paper, Japanese paper, gold leafing pen

Altered Birdhouse Progress - Part Two
Altered Birdhouse - Embellished Circus Exchange
No Pictures This Week . . .
Blame this one on Li'l Brah, who wrote a great "This I Believe" essay from the point of view of a G.I. Joe villian. This has been brewing in my mind for a while--what if Lovecraft's Great Old Ones really do walk among us, but have the smarts not to scare the sheep?
"Out of the Blue" Mail Art Party Challenge
Pattie is creating 3 small works of art. She will send one to the person who invited her to play, and one to the two people she invited to join...myself and another artist.
I in turn (as will each player) will create 3 works of art. I will send one back to Pattie, who invited me, and one on to each of the two artists I invited to play along.
Next, they pick two art friends to invite to play; make 3 art pieces, send one to me and one on to each friend with instructions as to the nature of the game.
Did that make any sense? You can read more about it here,on Deb's Blog.
Well here is what I crafted for Pattie; a little funky handbag using papers, pearlex, embossing powders and acrylics, with a finishing flourish of fancy fibers!
