Pattie's Creations Challenge #104 - Happy Birthday



This is my last card for Pattie's Creations DT.  Altogether I
have been with Pattie for about a year and a half and
had a lot of fun using her images. I wish all the rest of
the DT all the best and to continue with their lovely work.

Do take part in this challenge - just take note that you
should include any Digital or Stamped Image on your
creation! Stop on over to Pattie's ETSY Shop and have a look
at her many images. Don't forget to check out the Freebie First
Friday of the Month page. The Freebie will be available for
3 days, and then it will be removed from the site!
The challenge starts now and ends Thursday, November 27th 
at 1pm CST (Central Standard Time).
Have a look at this week's DT and their creations! You can check
their details by clicking on their names to leave some Luv at their
blogs.

























Now I am spending quite a lot of time getting to know about
Mixed Media - so watch this page!  I now have a 'craft room'
and the salon table is no longer overrun with all my crafting 
goods. I still have to find a solution for my 30x30 scrapbook
pages, but I know what to look for. I would like it on my
worktable, as what's better than having this paper at hand!
If it takes up too much room on my table, I have other ideas.
I have a round table behind me (next to a couch/bed), which
I use for my mixed media projects.

Pattie's Creations Challenge #102 - Autumn Colours In Your Image



Here is my card for the next challenge on Pattie's Creations.
I nearly missed this challenge as only in the evening of the day
I was going away for a few days, did I realise I hadn't made a
card!  My holiday was spent in Jerusalem, and my was it
crowded there, due to the Festival of Succot.  Luckily we had
great weather but did have to wear something called 'a jacket'
in the evening (first time in many months) due to it being chilly out
 - and we missed the rain in Tel Aviv!

Wedding Cards

Oh dear, I have been quiet here!  That doesn't mean I haven't been
making cards or doing a little scrapbooking. Following are a couple
of wedding cards I have made.  Now that I am into mixed media, I
have been looking at videos showing different techniques and I have
been following webisodes at Paperwishes. These webisodes are
just great and it is amazing what the two women who make these
videos come up with.

Pattie's Creations Challenge #100 - Vintage



Time for another Pattie's Creations Challenge - this time
the subject is 'Vintage".  I would have liked to put glitter,
gemstones etc. on the card, but these weren't on the
market in those days and the cards weren't too colourful.

Hila is 4



It's been a bit quiet here lately. I've been busy sorting out my
crafts room (second small bedroom), as I was working in the
salon and the dining table was always full of my crafting things,
and now I have a tablecloth on a nice tidy table but... it isn't
like working in the salon with the TV on - yes, I did get
distracted!  I put up some shelves in the bedroom and added
some lighting.  I am slowly sorting out things in the cupboard,
but I still need more space.  I am thinking of getting a fold-up
table, which would enable me to do some mixed media projects,
which I recently started doing and quite like.

Here is the card I made for my granddaughter's 4th birthday,
which is tomorrow.  Hopefully she will like it.

Pattie's Creations Challenge #98 - Altered or Recycled



The challenge this fortnight is "Altered or Recycled"
and as I had a few toilet paper rolls I decided to use
them.  I looked around the internet to get an idea of
what to do.  I finally decided to make pillow boxes
You can put sweets inside or a piece of jewelery or
anything small and give as a small gift.

should include any Digital or Stamped Image on your
creation! Stop on over to Pattie's ETSY Shop and have a look

Mixed Media 1

Here is my first try at mixed media - and I must admit I
rather liked doing it.  I googled 'mixed media' to learn
a little what it is about, and then I roughly followed a
film on You Tube, teaching the subject.  I then went to
a 3-hour class and made my 2nd mixed media picture,
this time on canvas.  I shall put that picture up soon.
This picture was made using 240 gm drawing paper.

I used lots of pieces of paper,  lace, molding paste,
stencils, paint, cut out heart and painted it and went
around the edge with a black marker, small pieces of
two materials and for the words I used Tattered Lace
Retro Alphabet  and Spellbinders Shapeabilities -
Floral Flourishes.

The lovely doll is a digi image I bought called Birgetti
from C.C. Designs. I used seed beads on the sunflower
and then covered the center with Glossy Accents. Also
used Dot Sparkler Stickers from Stampendous.


Any feedback welcome.
