Mixed Media Monday challenge

M.M.M. challenge this week was " A few of my favourite things" I had bought a set of small canvases a while ago but had not used them, so I created this little canvas for the challenge. It shows some of my favourite things, birds, nature ( butterfly), books ( book pages in background) photography, script, using vintage images, old films and of course art, even one of my favourite colours green.

Design team challenge

Ok now I am being very brave, Altered pages have put out a call for new design team members and I have decided to have a go. There will be 4 challenges over the next few weeks that you have to submit a project. The first one was to alter 5 playing cards. Here is my little project, an altered playing card book using the "School is silly" collage sheet. Keep you fingers crossed for me over the next 3 weeks.

Ten Two Studios 5th Anniversary swap

I saw the Ten Two 5th anniversary ATC swap and decided to have a go. You downloaded their collage sheets and had to make 5 ATCs using the images. Here are mine. They went off in the post today, cross fingers that they get there in time.

Out of action

I won't be able to add things to my blog for a few weeks as I am back in to hospital for my 4th operation on my ankle as soon as we come back from Austria so be patient and pop back again in a while to see what I have been up to, thanks.

DVD album

Now I have a laptop we can take a few things to watch on it on holiday. Of course they can't just go in the case they have to have a nice case to take them in. I just a few of the plastic CD sleeves you can get with a grey board cover then used my Bind it all to bind them all together.

St Wolfgang Journal

We are off to Austria on Saturday to St Wolfgang and as usuall I had to make a Journal to write while I am there.

Zetti style

This weeks theme with altered design was Zetti. I have loved the Zetti look for a while but not had a go myself so I was keen to get going with this weeks theme. Zetti style puts lots of different body parts to make up a Zetti person or creation, now I am not a reader of magazines so I did find it a bit of a challenge but with the few free mags you get at the supermarket and generous people who put their collage sheets out for you to use on the internet I managed to make my Zetti creation.
