my christmas gift to my daughter

my daughter and granddaughter making "O" face

my daughter and granddaughter making "O" face

I made this item on a canvas that was already painted with gesso. I used red and white paint to make a shade of pink I liked ( I don’t usually like pink!). Then added some scrapbook paper, an image of my daughter at 1 1/2 making a cute little face and on of her daughter making a somewhat same face. We call it “O” face and I have to say its very cute in person!

Then I added some lace and put that down with gel medium, a note on gel medium, I love this stuff. I holds just about anything and I have the gloss since I like my art to shine, it never disapoints! I added some stickers and 3d embelishments and letters and as a final touch I embossed gold glittery embossing powder to the outside of the peice.

I think it turned out rather well, I use to say I was not much of an artist but really I think we all have artist blood in us we just need to let it out and have fun with it.

I have a couple more ATCs to post later, I just made them for fun not for any swap or anything.

thanks for looking,

I am so excited to trade my first atcs. I joined Maggies Monday Musings over at flickr and joined in the recent challenge, it was reminisce. The posting below is the one I made for the trade, I get to trade with cindyiscrafty who does very nice work as well see her photostream here.
I must say I enjoyed doing this challenge and hope to be able to participate in this weeks theme which is Africa.
So far I have not been able to use any of the collage sheets I made yet, but am hoping to soon, they are available here at Etsy.
Also again, I am a proud member of the Etsy team, Etsy Supplies Street Team, here is there page, join in the fun over at Etsy for a great venue for selling your home made items!

I did this for Halloween, I just sit and stare at a blank atc card until I just get frustrated and put stuff on it that I like, then I get more into the groove and insperation just seems to come from staring at it for awhile, Does this even make sense? lol!

Here is one of the photos I took yesterday at San Francisco, I had such a good time, it felt so good to do a touristy thing. I have more photos uploaded to my flickr which is posted on the right hand side of this blog entry, check them out!
Now I guess its back to figuring out what to do for Halloween crafty things.
I did upload a pair of earrings to Etsy today but I could not get a good shot of them and they don’t look all that hot. I will have to try again tomorrow and see if I can get a better shot.
They are very pretty though!

updated flickr

okay, today I updated my photos and graphics on flickr. I must say its a great way to find beautiful art and photos, Awesome stuff on there and the people seem very nice so far. Can’t wait to upload more stuff as I am going through all my folders on my PC. Seems I keep moving and copying my stuff around so I end up with 6 copies of one image.
I figure I should be done in about a year, then I can start on my 5000 sent messages in my sent box, I have not counted the saved ones in the inbox yet, YIKES!
I have been twittering as well, you can check out both sites here if you like.

By the way did anyone else watch the last episode of Hell’s Kitchen? I love that show and I just knew he was going to pick Christina more because she is young and more easy to mold into the person he (Gordon Ramsey) want in his kitchen.
Good show.

okay, hooked up with flickr and twitter

I am totally enjoying twitter, though I do not have a large group of people following me its fun to follow others and most of the time they follow back, Its pretty neat how everyday things seem somehow more exciting when someone else does it, maybe its because its not in the same town so you have to use your imagination to visualize it.
So far on flickr I have uploaded some of my photos, 3 of them are of my fathers house which burnt down in the Angora fire in South Lake Tahoe, he has rebuilt his already and is now happily redoing his yard and stuff, he still misses his big screen TV but he won’t buy one until the house is fixed up by winter because he says he will just sit around watching it.
Its so hot here today that I can’t even think of doing any of my craft stuff today, plus I babysit my granddaughter while her mommy works and she is a handfull at 11 months, she keeps me pretty busy!
So today I think I will just try and clean up the computer files I have full of images that are duplicated all over my hard drive lol.
