10 minute Challenge

Over at Linda's Studio L3 the challenge was to use a Tim Holtz product and create something within Ten Minutes. I created this Clean and Simple Card using Tim's Christmas Texture Fade, some Fired Brick Distress Inks. I put it on the Texture Fade itself. and Tim's Paper Stash "Christmas Memories". Just as my ten minutes was up I was putting the bow on. LOL

My Angel and more

Last night I was on a roll creating these gals. I was up until the wee hours of the morning. Why? because I was nervous about an MRI I had to do today. I have panic attacks in these and I was afraid that would happen. Well I think My Angel was watching over me as I had none. It went smooth and I was cool , calm and collected. After Sedation. LOL

I kind of lost my Muse as these portraits are all I can do right now.

I can't do anything else as nothing will come to me to do.

duh and duh again

Hey!!! Thanks for looking

Still at it

I'm still at it.. trying to learn how to do Whimsy Portraits. I keep at it. I don't know if I'm getting better or worse. LOL but I keep going. I'm having problems with background. Tam makes it looks so easy but even though I'm doing faces I still can't draw.. or am afraid to muck it all up by drawing and not being able to erase what I draw because of layers of color.. wondering if others go through this..

anywho here is my latest..

Don't ya just love her cool bangs.. LOL

Hey thanks for looking!

Masculine Card

I had to make my hubby a Birthday card and couldn't even think of something masculine.. They are the hardest Cards for me to make.. I finally came up with this. I used a Resist Technique for the Background and Embossed the Humming Bird.. I used Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Inks on the Background but the Broken China doesn't even show up in the picture. It really looks off color for sure.. oh well at least I have a masculine card. LMAO!! I Distressed the edges using my new Distrezz it all.

I'm entering this card in Simon Says Challenge.. The Challenge is "Things that Fly"..

A Bit of the Whimsy

I'm taking a few workshop by Tamara or better known as Willowing.. She is a fabulous teacher. well when I'm teachable I guess. I gave up yesterday for awhile and then heard one of her fabulous talks about the Monster within. The one that tells us we are no good at Artwork well at anything. You know the one. After a pep talk from Tam I went into her World Of Whimsy course and gave artwork another go. I came up with this Whimsical Gal. I don't like the Tissue paper on her and will probably put a blue wash over it but for now I'm okay.. at least my inner monster is. LOL

Don't ya just love the Pink Hair!
