spooky book swap

I have taken part in a spooky book swap on Art 42. The book is 8x8 and had to be made to a spooky theme, so I chose to do a family spell book that has been handed down through the family from witch to witch. Hoskin is an old Cornish family name chose at random.

Button box kit

My new kit for Altered pages is now available on the Altered Pages web site, link to the right. Great as a gift or to put a gift in. The kit comes with a template so you will be able to make any box size, just follow the same pattern.

September calender journal page

Well better late than never. I did start this before I went on holiday but time just got the better of me, so it was the first thing on my list when I got back. The image is from the Tatty Button CDrom which comes with its own image builder so you can enlarge the images and make your own background papers and scenes using all the images on the CD. Hence being able to get Tatty to almost A4.

Kaprun Zentangle

I have been enjoying the challenge of my holiday Zentangles. This will be the last holiday zentangle this year now. This time I did it like a Zentangle diary, the day we went to the Hydro electric dam was a bit of a challenge though!! Can you guess what day we went? Sounds very boring but it was very very high and surrounded by mountains and glaciers, so quite a site.

Shrink Plastic paper dolls

The great paper doll stamp set from The Fruit Pixie is the perfect size to use with shrink plastic. As you can see I enjoy Zentangles and thought it would be a nice idea to Tangle the different body parts and see what happens. I tried both clear and white shrink plastic and came up with two lovely art dolls. If you would like to have a go too the stamps are available from The Fruit Pixie and instructions will be up on their blog and Facebook page shortly. Have fun!
