Winning isn't everything!

There is a challenge this month at Carolyn Dube's blog to include something you'd normally throw away in your art.  I used a paper plate and a losing scratch off lottery ticket.  My color palette is taken from the lottery ticket colors. I glued down my lottery ticket.  I cut up the paper plate and glued it down.  I used almost all the paper plate. After that I got to work with the paint, stencils and pens.  Thanks for coming by my blog and viewing my "winning isn't everything" journal page!

Celestial Tag Swap

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the January swap is a celestial tag swap.  I started out by applying some vintage text to a tag.  I painted a pearl paint over the text.  I applied gold paint to my 4" round gelli plate and stamped it at the top right and bottom left. I stenciled the woman and the dots at the top with navy blue paint.  I applied the jewel stars and glued a mirror star in the middle.  I ran a strip of gold German scrap border up the right side.  I painted the white lace with the gold and navy blue paint.  The "twinkle"letters are Tim Holtz label letters.  I had fun making these tags!  Thanks for coming by to see my celestial tag!
