A friend of mine has just bought a property in France and they are moving in beginning of 2013 and there will be New Years celebrations. Two embossed birds with one heat gun I say as the challenge this month is Celebration/New Year.
The Eiffel Tower is a cutting file by Jennifer Wambach and rather than using ink on these intricate shapes, I utilized my discovery from last month and sprayed the whole shape with re-positionable adhesive (Krylon).
It means I can glue the shape together first and then emboss. Super easy and fast! I usedmetallic Platinum Sparkle to cover the tower. It is so sparkly that it is hard to get a good picture of it without glare. Which is a very good thing!
The box underneath the Eiffel Tower is covered in French dictionary papers and some more Platinum embossing and washi tape. It will hold an album with French phrases.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a very happy start to 2013 or as we say in Germany

I just love cutting up old books. There is so much fodder in good text. I have been feasting on ‘The moon is a balloon’ by David Niven for ages (very funny read too!)
Today I set myself the challenge to randomly stick my finger into the remaining pages and work with the sentence it lands on. ‘Regardez….’ the sentence started and this is the story that kind of wrote itself and is yesterdays journal page.
Frohe Weihnachten everyone!
He probably watched me doing something epic
I wonder what it was…… any ideas?
Fish are always a fascinating subject, might have to do some more
Art prompts are such a good way to get your creativity fired up. Here is one from the wonderful Carla Sonheim using sidewalk cracks: http://www.carlasonheim.com/sidewalk-cracks
And this is what came up for me:
and then I had another go digitally enhancing it.
It really is nice to have the muse to do these sketches. Today this painting by William Roberts caught my eye. The movement is just infectious!
I used alcohol inks to get the vivid colours and am particularly proud of one hand and she seems to be moving. He on the other hand seems to be standing there with his hand in his pocket (probably conscious of the dodgy hair style I have settled him with!
