MOM--shelf sitter

This is so cute & it was so easy to make & I put them in my booth & they are selling! I just used chipboard, covered it in patterned paper decorated it & used my bind it all to punch the holes in the sides, but you could use a hole punch & then used ribbon to tie it together!

This was a cool technique! This was for a challenge from Creative Impressions yahoo group. There were a few artists works to choose from & I chose an Andy Warhol. I printed my photos in black & white on a transparency. The color blocks are the color of the dress & I added sequins that matched the dress. The gogo dancer letters are Heidi Swapp ghost, Reason lowercase & I added a glaze to them to just add a touch of color. Very simple & easy but I really like the look of the transparencies!

The Photographer

I am the photographer of the family & in most cases it is because I 'have' to be, my hubby was in charge of getting a few pictures at Disney a few years ago & the camera has not been in his hands since!!! Anyway, I am doing albums for my daughter & thought she should have a few pics of mom, so I was sitting in traffic one day, bored, & took a few snapshots of myself, I really like the look of this layout, it was actually a sketch from -I think My sketch world-sorry if I got it wrong. I of course inked all my edges, added some stitching, some ribbon, the flowers were white & I chalked them to match then added buttons with floss in the middle,my 'photographer' lettering is a sizzix sizzlet alphabet used with my big shot. That's all, very simple.
