We have got to M in our A-Z journal and the challenge was to use mosaic. My M was for medicine and so I used the Hippocratic oath to cut up and mosaic the background with the image of Hippocrates, the father of medicine. Then the boarder from the same paper as the background to say medicine.
We were invited to my hubby's cousins surprise 50th birthday last weekend and so I had to make the card everyone dreads, a mans card for a special birthday ! He is a professional musician so I thought he would understand a more unusual style card than the norm and I thought of the wonderful paper dolls that are on the Joanna Sheen Fashion Boutique CD rom. I must admit I was very pleased with how it turned out and loved making it, cutting out all those great fashions of the 20's and 30's !
My two Nephews went to Disney USA and I wanted to make them something to keep all those little bits and bobs you pick up on holiday when you are 9 and 11. So here is what I came up with for them, a little book with lots of pockets to hid things in and paper for characters autographs or what ever they wanted. I had great fun designing and making them, just wish I had thought of it earlier, only had afternoon to make them in !!! They had a great time and loved their books too

Here is the latest page for my A-Z journal, L is for Literacy. The challenge for this letter was layering and so I pasted a layer of book pages onto card then using masking tape pulled some off and also rubbed some off too. I then added another layer and did the same but this time used a different type of book page. Next layer was using my Moonglow paper dyes, three colours, then added a paint stamped A B C and the books for the Tim Holtz papers and the words round the edge put on with safmat.

The K challenge for our A-Z journal on Alternative was Kaleidoscope or repeated pattern so as I had to do Kings I had just the new stamp to use ! Using regal colours I painted a watered down red wash and then using the same colour from the pot stamped with foam stamps on top. Then using my new crown stamp down the side. Mounted Richard 3rd onto gold card stamped with gold paint added a German scrap strip under his pic and then added the rub ons.

This weeks theme on TMTATC was eyes, I had a new set of stamps from paper artsy that fitted the bill perfectly. I hadn't played with my alcohol inks for a while so got those out to make the background for the eye and text and then just added a slide mount. A bit different to my usual style but I think I like it !
Each Monday in my Google group they set a Monday challenge, an image with which you make a piece of art. This time was the first time I had managed to get one done. I used 4x4 for the first time and liked what the extra size from an ATC size allows you to do. The challenge image was the lady and I added the racing background from Google images to a watercolour background.
