Our monthly exchange at Circle of Friends for January is Altered Dominos. For mine I drilled a small hole in each one and then painted them with Pewter Crackle Paint, it didn't crackle, but I really like the surface it left when it dried. The collage image is from Altered Pages and the hearts were punched from red cardstock. I added glitter glue around the hearts and glued ribbon all around the edges of the domino. I added a small chain to each finished domino.
Welcome to my Blog and please have a look around. I want to share some of my projects with you and hopfully they will inspire you to try something new in your art world.
Please fee free to leave a comment - I love to hear what you have to say.
The above picture is of my kitty Baxter, or better known as Mr. Boo, as he is a big scaredy cat.

This week at One Powerful Hour my friend Caroline is having a birthday so for this weeks challenge she has chosen "Birthdays". Here is my Vintage Birthday Card. Using brown cardstock and a pink printed paper I created the base for the card and I added a pretty pink ribbon over the seam. I used Distressed Inks in Tea Dye and Worn Lipstick on the tag and the images are from Altered Pages. I added buttons and a bit of glittery stars and flowers.
Thanks for taking a look and another Happy Birthday to Caroline!!

Using a new card sketch from Caardvarks I created this card for their challenge and I am sending to a friend with Send Love Today. I used the ribbon to divide up the card a bit and then added my four sections. The image is from European Papers, I added pink glitter glue and a blue button to the pink and brown section. My flower is a transparent material so you can see the background paper and then using my Dymo I added "Dreams" and a couple of stars from Really Reasonable Ribbons. The stars are a ribbon, I just cut them apart.
Give this four part sketch a try, it was really fun to put together.
I am doing a swap with a friend and this one was to make a Jointed Doll and this is my version. My stamp is from Paula Best - I stamped it with Green Staz-On ink onto GrungeBoard. I then used H2O's and painted all the designs and added glitter glue in different places. The crown is also GrungeBoard and I painted that with Bronze Crackle Paint from Tim Holtz. I found tiny button brads to put it all together with.
Thanks for taking a look and hope you enjoy my site.
