Toot and Some Arty Stuff

~Firstly my TOOT!! I got asked to be on the design team for the Scrap Around The Clock challenge blog and forum.........

creating for scrap around the clock

~Go check it out, there are great challenges for both scrappers and ATC-ers!!! My first layout will go up at the beginning of July!!! So that's more exciting news - I'm really enjoying both my DT spaces, they keep me busy and creative!!! Speaking of which........

~Since being on Jean's Art Dolls forum, I have really started dabbling in more art and taking part in some of the challenges, even setting my own challenge for June!!!!

~One of the first things I did, was inspired by my future MIL, Angie. She has covered storage boxes in stamps...... so I thought why not transfer that over to this mask..........

~Her name is RSVP, and she is most definitely one of my favourite pieces of art I've created in the last few weeks!!!
~I also did this mask.........
~This one was fabric, so I used Adrionack shimmer paints and stickles to make her pretty!!!

~My June challenge over on JAD's is to alter a rubber duck.........
~I covered mine in tissue, painted over with blonde moments paint and some stickles. Her name is Sparkle. These are fun to do and everyone should give it a go!!! :D Infact I have a mega sized rubber duck to do next.

~Today, Jay and I, decided to do a pair of ATC's - so she did hate and I did Love..........
~A huge thank you to Jay for her help with this, she's really taught me some new techniques that I will take forward with me!!!
~I also decided to do art journal recently, so here is the front cover..........
~And here is my first page..........
~I chose a 12x12 album, so I can do all my pages different sizes!! I'm having alot of fun doing this and must get some more pages done.

~And lastly, Karen, over on JAD's started a mini book of me challenge. The first challenge was to do your front cover........~And the 2nd was to talk about who you are..........
~I've got a wee bit of catching up to do because challenges 3,4 and 5 are already up - so keep an eye out for those pages coming soon. I'm using a minibook i got for christmas that has all different shaped pages in it!!

~I took my weekly photo today, this starts off week 23 (already).........
~Because I was creating today, i thought a photo of my crafting space was most apt!!
~Anyway lastly, but certainly not least..... my lovely friend Jan is giving away some AMAZING blog candy over on blog - so head on over there for a chance to win!!!
