H for Hollywood

For our H page in my A-Z journal the challenge was to use a hidden element and as my H was for Hollywood I just had to build a theater ! Only a flat one this time although I now want to build a 3d one, and of course as the curtain is pulled up my favourite MGM musical "Singing in the Rain" is on ! Where would we be without Hollywood !!

Dad's birthday card

This is another card from our card challenge on alternative, this time for Dad's birthday at the end of the month. Papers and images are from my Joanna Sheen " Tales of the Orient " CD rom.

Just B

The ATC theme last week with altered design was Just B. I am still having fun getting to know my water soluble wax crayons so I used them for the background, over stamped and then collaged !

Triangle ATC swap

I have taken part in the triangle ATC swap on alternative, there was no theme and we just took a regular ATC and made a triangle out of it. They reminded me of the medieval banners they had so I decided on a medieval theme for one of my sets of 3 and for the other my good friend Boo had done me some embossed script pieces on her die cut machine and so I was just itching to do something with them, so I used my chalks on one and my paper stains on the others and made a set of postage style ATCs. Well here they are !

F is for Fire

My fire page, the challenge was to use felt, friendly plastic or feathers. Had problems with this one and was going to scrap it and start again but it grew on me and I decided to stay with it , even if its not my best ever work. Never mind ! The image was from Google images and I used Fantasy film to make the flames and added feathers to fit the challenge and give the fire some heat. The rub-ons are Scenic route and yes I have used an r and not a v although I had to look twice !!
