This one uses the Dotted Swiss folder and a penscore block. Take the block, heat with heat tool and lay over the folder. Ink the block, stamp it and you have the opposite of your folder, and a nice background...in this case, the darker blue.
This one wasn't done with the Cuttlebug, but used the Bubble technique. Colored ink in water with a bit of detergent. Blow into the solution with a straw and lay your paper over. Lift off carefully and dry.
Arrived in Port A last week. So far have been in a craft fair, volunteered to sub for music at church, and made a lot of cards trying to use up scraps :-) Weather was nice 2 days, but otherwise has been overcast,cool and windy weather. Good for chicken soup and card making!
"Art in My Garbage" is a favorite theme I deamed up. All that "stuff" in the trash-bin surely has another life as an "art supply" - Yesterday the discovery was date pits ;-D They scrub up well, have a nice rustic, "woody" look and make great beads when drilled with a fine dremel bit. Have also just discovered "sea beans", along with the lovely shells on the Texas beaches. The teeniest bit of baby oil shines them up nice. Avocados, apple seeds, prune pits, etc. can all be used as well. http://www.beachbeans.com/bean_descriptions.html
Hoping to share inspiration with thosewho visit. “Art is in the doing. It isn’t important how it turns out. The process is where the pleasure, the learning and the experience take place. A day without some sort of creative endeavor is a wasted day.” Myrna Wacknov
Call of the Wild was a page created for a Traveling Journal while a member on an altered book site. The book is gone, but at least I have photos of the art created. This is a combination of stamping, collage and freehand.
