This is my version of "Stripey Jumper" .. for Lou's
pages in the Artistic License cj. The colours in the trees are skeleton leaves, the trees themselves cut out and coloured with soluble was pastels and the people card and papers embellished with metallic pens. A few swirly, circly bits and that's it!

These are my versions of the "face" stamp. They are hybrid .. I stamped the image, scanned it and made the backgrounds, faces and eye colour, then printed them out. The hair and frames are done with metallic and pearlised paint. I hope they are OK.

This one is the Tip-In page for Hotluca. She asked for Funky Floral .. I hope this is up to par.

This is my version of "O Christmas Tree" for a Tip-In page for Lou. I hope she likes it.
These are the last two of the "dress-form" fairies ...POINSETTIA and STAR.
I hope my fellow swappees approve.

Yeah, another one finished.
This is my interpretation of the Holly&Ivy Fairy ...
essential at Christmas!

The latest "dress-form" fairy .. Christmas Tree.
As the tree is the "gem" of decorations, so is she!

These are three of the first four "dress-form" Christmas Fairies

I have made for Netty's swap. The

Frost fairy actually looks more silvery in real life ... with a touch of glitter to catch the eye.

The Bauble Fairy has a round skirt and ribbon bodice .. to hang the bauble by, of course!

Purple Haze Fairy has a misty

purple overlay .. just like the half-light of a Winter evening.

So four down and five to go.

This is my "page" for Leanie, based on a Gachaga "collage"
about the London Underground. The background is an actual
pavement area which is illuminated at night ..which gave me
the idea for the other landmarks:- The Tower of London,
St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Clock Tower of
the Palace of Westminster(Big Ben) and 14 St Mary Axe - alias
The Gherkin.

These are the pieces I have done for the Alice in Wonderland Jiggy ... after loosing my nerve halfway, they are all digi .. and I hope they are acceptable to my fellow jiggers!

This is my section of a "Home Decoration" spelling out Halloween .. can you find the "L" ?

These are 2" Paisley shaped chipboard pieces for a swap on UKS.

I used patterns a bit like the ones they use to do the henna designs
on hands etc .. even though Paisley isn't Indian at all ... its English!!

I am hosting a cj based on Sketches. These are the first two ... my own "Sweetie to Sweetheart" - my Mum; and "Deceiving" for Dusty Fairy ... a broken roadway in Florida that looks more like one of those Japanese garden lanterns than a full blown (sorry - just remembered this was destroyed by a hurricane!!) road.

This is my version of the LO for August on
Scrapology. The picture is a tinted postcard,
and I think the young lady is very pretty, hence
the title. I used three kits to make this:
Irene Alexeeva's Altered Ego, Kathryn Estry's
Roses For Elizabeth, and Faith True and Tracie
Stroud's Got Beads ... although I have changed
the colour of most of the elements!!

the Alice in Wonderland Tag swap.

Another LO for Scrapology .. this time from the June sketch.

This is my version of the July sketch challenge on
Scrapology. I knew as soon as I saw this piccy that I had to do something with it .. and I quite like how it has turned out!

Yet another long gap between posts .. really must do better!!!

This time I am showing off the gorgeous CJ that everyone made for me .. the names are in the picies. The theme was Monotone ... choose a colour and stick to it ... sounds simple but what a great job everyone made of a not so simple task.!!

Oh dear, it is so long since I uploaded anything!!!! They do say "better late than never" don't they ... but who are "they" anyway???

OK, here we go ..... this is my page for Dudette's Sketches cj .... the outer circle(ish) and the photo positions were the original sketch .. and she did say she liked colour and "bumpy" embellies, honest!

These are my pages for Moxie's "Fire" cj .... it is supposed to be an "Art Journal" type entry but my mojo went heywire and I resorted to what I know best - digi !! I hope the style is "arty" enough and I haven't disappointed too much.
