Colors, Baby!

I think the most color I've ever applied to a project was to a series of dominoes. So here are my ravens as part of the color challenge posed by the Crazy Amigo Challenge.

TMTA: Coffee & Fall Tree Girl


Coffee is the TMTA challenge this week. A good Monday theme as Monday is usually the day of coffee bucket - not mug o' coffee, bucket o' coffee. So I pulled out my old, dusty copy of Bernie Berlin's FANTASTIC book, Artist Trading Card Workshop, and played this rainy Monday evening. Came up with two ATCs that use the Mica method outlined on p. 94. Be sure to check out her equally fantastic blog. She has me wanting to take a day off to go and look for heart-shaped rocks. :) Collage images from ArtChix and Altered Pages. Stamps from Oxford Impressions and Inkastamps.

Wicked Witch

Oxford Impressions' new Wicked plate arrived in the mail a few days ago. I couldn't wait to introduce its images to some of the witches from Collagevisions. The two work well together, I think.

Wednesday Stamper: Eerie Witch

Fall is here and October is just around the corner. Witches are making their way into my artwork on a near daily basis. The Wednesday Stamper challenge this week is patterns. I'm honoring this with a lovely harlequin background and numberous witchy creations as of late. Collage images from Collagevisions.

ATC Green Tea

Theme Thursday: Numbers

Decided to go with Roman numerals for this one, on the face of the old pocket watch image. Numbers is the Theme Thursday challenge.

MM: Domino Necklace

Doing what I love - the Mixed Media challenge this week has prompted me to post a picture of a domino neclace. Not only is it mixed media, but mixed artistry, too. I stamp the dominos and my mom does the beading. We have quite a system worked out.

Gothic Arch: Favorite Movie

It's such a challenge to have just ONE favorite movie when there are so many to choose from. My gothic arch features one favorite movie, Chocolat. I love the Joanne Norris book and even read its sequel this summer, The Lollipop Shoes. I enjoyed getting reacquainted with the main characters. The film is my part of my annual spring equinox rite. Johnny Depp and chocolate is such a heady combination. The red represents the traveling capes worn by Vianne and Anouk. Stamps from Oxford Impressions, Club Scrap, and Johnny was an Ebay find.

TMTA: Tea Fairy Handwriting

This week's TMTA challenge is handwriting. I was also inspired by Cathy to make a tea fairy from some of my Tazo scraps, since she posted two lovely fairies of like origin on the Altered Gypsy forum. Which reminds me, she is hosting a 10/10 Halloween ATC swap, so if you're interested, join us! My scrawled handwriting is found in the margins of this piece. It reads, "Clear your mind...a hot cuppa tea on a rainy day...healing power".

Gothic Arch: Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink is the theme for Gothic Arches this week - be sure to check out their funky new site! Not sure how well my butterflies will show in the scan. In real life, they're shiny pink, but in scanned life, they look like shadows.
