Sassy Women Swap

This is the collage that I made as my sample. It is a 4x4 collage. I guess it can be considered a mixed media design.

I don't know if this is the direction I want to go with for this swap. :) I only have one dream catcher...and like how it turned out. I used matt board for the background.

Covered it in painted paper towel (USed acrylics--2 blues, pearlescent white, gold, and used dyes...purple, green, pink). Then I layered a gold heart (I cut for a Valentine's project I never used) a star (came with some buttons I bought) a purple flower....then I used a safety pin to do the dream dh's mother bought me that for Christmas. I used an image of a ballet dancer I found on NY Libraries images. Added a quote that I printed and inked the edges and some crystals.

Is it Sassy enough?

New Projects

I have been feeling pretty creative lately. :) Probably has something to do with wanting to procrastinate on school. But, I have been doing good so far this semester. Had my first test in Biology and made an A (with a 6 point curve). Been doing my workouts for Weight Training and Health & Fitness. So I am on track. Not only am I getting grades...but I am getting fit. I have done pretty good about keeping on track with my eating plan. Not perfect but a heck of a lot better than before.

So here are some projects I have made:

One I love the this rendition of weedsgalore flower lady card. I put my spin on it. But overall everything is her idea. I just loved it and wanted to make the card.
Second is a card I made for Papercrafts contest...using products packaging. I used a sales tag from a stuffed animal. I think it is darling....and I have my oldy but goody Fat Cat Stamp.
Next, I made this fun Santa card. I used a pattern for a quilted tree runner in a Christmas decorating book.
Lastly, I have a few swap projects that I made.
