So if you have been following my blog lately you probably saw my other Raphael post. I decided to take my drawing, reduce the size a bit and make an atc. I think the face came out much better. She looks like she was rolling her eyes in the other one. She looks sad in this one. I love collecting pictures and paintings of sad faces. I don't know why. I guess I like to draw them too!
Thanks for stopping by!

So I saw this blog, Every Inchie Monday , and decided that I would like to try it out. You just make one a week, post it on your blog and leave a link on their blog to your post. It may get featured. But the fact that I made this in about ten minutes was so appealling to me! Love stuff that I can make fast. It is 1 x 1 inch. Just a tiny little piece of art.
First I rubbed on three colors of versamagic to make the water and sand colors. I then added a glitter that looks like sand. I glued on five abalone shell fragments to make the flower. I poured diamond glaze over all of the inchie except for the glittered part then added more crystal like glitter to look like the foamy part of the water.
I can not wait to get started on next weeks inchie!!!
Have a great day!
I just want to say first how much fun I had and that I so appreciate everyone who took time to come by my blog. I wish I had a key to give all of you!
This was so fun and I loved visiting all of your blogs.
The winner is... MALLORY!!!! You can visit her at her blog EAGER EYE .
Thank you again.
Have an awesome day!!!

I host an ATC swap group on Creative Souls and this month the theme was dress forms. This is what I made. I had alot of fun making this one. The actual dress form is an image from Ceremony who you can find on Etsy. I will have to find out who the other images are from if you would like to know. I made the beaded fringe on the bottom. I traced the dress form on white cardstock and cut it out, then beaded it. I then glued the dress forms together so you wouldn't see the holes where I sewed on the beads.
I hope you have a great day!

One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy.

I have been designing for Penny Black Rubber Stamps since 2002. Before that I took alot of art classes and got my diploma from The Art Intstitute of Seattle. I can't remember not doing crafts. I love making mixed media and collage atc's and other pieces. I also host an atc swap group. Love making dolls, painting, stamping, colored pencils and watercolors. I really love to go to garage sales and flea markets.
This is my door prize. Five keys. Four of them antique! Just leave a comment and a way to contact you if you win. Thank you so much for coming by!
