    This is the front. We had to use 1 CP stamp and make Dark Ladies, witches, etc as the theme. I stamped on polymer clay disks I made and added wire and beads. I attached fibers to the edge. I made Myth with a rubber mold and rubbed pearl-ex on and glazed it.

    December technique for AAO- Misty Mawn style-11 pages

    Our project this month was to do our own version of Misty Mawn's amazing style. This is the front side of my project. I did layers of inks, paints and rubber stamps. I printed the wings out. The hand is from a magazine. I sanded the face and added a white glaze. I painted over the hand and butterfly wings and added colored pencil. I wish I could see how does her faces.

    Favorite Techniques-Altered Art Obsession

    This month we chose one of our favorite techniques to use on ATC cards. I chose to do a laser printer transparency. The background is text from an old book adhered to cardstock. On 3 of these I did a wash of white over the text then added gold to the cardstock where the image is see-thru. I machine sewed them on.

  • I absolutely LOVE these charm bracelets. Just what I need to do is start "another" project. I just can't resist them. I'm already into altered art, so what can a few charm blanks and a few more tools hurt? hehehe...
