September Halloween ATC Swap

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the September swap is a Halloween-themed ATC swap.  Here's one of my entries.  The witch is from the Collage Stuff "Cursed" collage sheet - one of my favorites! The mini doilies, witch charms and orange bingo markers are available at Collage Stuff.  The Halloween definition is from Hidden Vintage Studios.  I used a punch for the number "31" and colored the numbers orange with an orange paint marker.  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!  If you'd like to join in this swap, click on the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group on the side bar for more info. Thanks for coming by my blog!  Boo!

August Art Journal Page Swap

For my August art journal page, the recipient's theme is "silly birds".  On this page, I glued down an old dictionary page, and used a circle stencil with Dylusions green and orange paint.  The yellow is Dina Media paint.  I used a Stencil Girl word stencil here and there.  I applied a light orange washi tape in several places.  The birds are from the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamp set.  I colored them with watercolors.  I used a Dina Media stencil with glitter bead gel.  Love that stuff!  The saying is from Dylusions.

This page is all Dina Media - stamps, paint and stencils.  The hearts are cut from a vintage book.  I used an orange inktense pencil and a yellow china marker for highlighting some of the elements. The birds are painted with the Dina Media paints.  I used an alphabet stamp that is NOT Dina Media for a little texture.  Thanks for coming by my blog!

Out of Focus Art Journal Page

I call this art journal page "Out of Focus".  It's not really out of focus, but at first glance.....  I used some Golden High Flow acrylic paints to put down some background color.  I used the Stencil Girl Trio of Houses stencil (I think that's the name of it.) with blue and then black paint with the stencil shifted down and to the right slightly.  I used a Stencil Girl flower stencil at the top.  I cut up some pages from a vintage book in half circles and strips and glued then down to frame the page.  Hot pink paint over the text next.  I used a Stencil Girl word stencil around the edges, then painted black paint around the pink parts.  The rest was adding paint and letter stickers in different places.  Thanks for coming by my blog!

Pondering Art Journal Page

This is a page in my 9x12 journal.  I started out making a background with Stencil Girl stencils and Dylusions paints and kind of overdid it.  I recently bought the Stencil Girl Bold Flowers stencil that is a stencil plus masks.  I used 3 of the flower masks and black paint.  I used a white glaze pen to doodle and add journaling.  Thanks for coming by my blog!

Asian-themed ATC's

The August swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is an Asian-themed ATC swap.  I sent all of the participants a mini collage pack with Asian items that were to be used in the ATC construction.  I included joss papers, pages from a vintage Japanese/English dictionary and Japanese vocabulary cards.  I made backgrounds with these items,and  added some red paint with stencils.  The main images are from some Asian-themed playing cards at Collage Stuff.  I scanned in the playing cards and sized them to fit on my ATC's.  It will be interesting to see what everyone does with the same collage materials.  Thanks for coming by my blog!
