I thought I would share a few photos from the past. Maybe I will inspire some of you to drag your goodies out as well.
The theme, Halloween and Christmas are the two holidays I really, really enjoy creating for.
I love the typical colors of fall, my all time favorites. I have also been know to go with some blues, purples and bright oranges, all is good. I typically use antique images of people in my creations, makes it feel more spooky I guess.
Here is a Altoids tin.
I have created many pieces using these two little guys.
My sister in law, Lois gave me this photograph many years ago. She believes they are family members from long ago but does not know which ones. I have managed to ask a few of them and no one knows for sure. Anyways, I love to include these two little guys in many items I create.
This is a tag that was sent to a swap partner.
I will be creating a few Halloween items for my dear friend, Karla.We have been planning a one on one swap together. We will be creating a large tag using an image that Karla picked out. We are also creating a 6 x 9 altered canvas of sorts made using an antique book cover that will sit in a picture holder.
My Figgy and I created these burlap roses for our hoedown barbeque party.
We think they came out pretty good.
I found a tutorial on You tube.
Just search on You tube "burlap roses" and you will find many tutorials.
I think I am going to grunge some of these up and possibly orange and black glitter, Halloween is right around the corner. I think these would make nice gifts for those swaps I will be doing with special friends.
