Altered Patriotic Cabinet Cards

Just thought I'd stop by and share my latest foray into the world of ink, glitter and glue. I signed up to create 3 Patriotic Cabinet Cards. It was my first attempt at altering them. I think there is good and bad in the results, but they are finished and ready to go postal tomorrow. Without further fanfare.....here they are:

Playing with Paper.....Woot! Woot!

Playing with paper??  Who knew!!  I have been super busy making goodies for our new business:  ARTful Salvage. (I should be updating that blog today or tomorrow too!) I wanted to participate, as I can, in my 2 Yahoo ART groups. So without further ado....here are my latest creations.

I signed up for another round of corner bookmarks. They are fun and quick to make. These were created from a text print handmade envie and embellsiehd with Miss Mona, photo corners, postage stamps, dymo labels and sequins. You can find the directions here and view my other bookmarks in my previous post.

Each of my 2 groups have a monthly lottery with a chosen theme by the past month's winner. Lottery #1 was themed "Nature". I took a composition book and made a journal using some of my gorgeous stash of Mariposa paper. It is embellished with ric-rac, acrylic stamps and my always present glitter. :)

Journal #2 was for the theme "Patriotic". I used an amazing wallpaper border for collage pieces and pen stitched them. Again, ric-rac and glitter finish it off.

Both journals are tied up with ribbon clousres and have coordinating liner pages. Hope you enjoyed a peek at my latests ART. Now, I am back to making stained glass windows, etched mirrors and bowling gazing balls for ARTful Salvage. See 'ya!!
