Latest creations

The Helensvale ATC swap occurred on Sunday and I managed to get my ATCs sent to Pam on time who looks after my trades, due to the fact that I no longer live in Queensland to swap in person.  This month's theme was "Aussie Slang" and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.  Here's my take on the theme.  I attempted to do the "faux tin-type" technique, but it hasn't quite turned out how I wanted as the xyron sort of created bubbles when I stuck the transparency to the foil underneath.  All the same, hopefully everyone will still like them.

Sparrow's Fart = Dawn in Aussie language!

I was going to join the Stained Glass swap through ATC World, but left it too late and was concerned the cards wouldn't turn up before the deadline.  I had fun having a play though.  I did the outline in Leadlite and the colours are with Glasslite (Glass paint).  It was fun to try something different.

At the beginning of this year I joined the Alice in Wonderland Challenge through PaperArts Yahoo Group.  With the move to Sydney I'm really behind on creating my pages, but here's what I've created so far.  I'm really enjoying the challenge and am even more happy that I only need to create 1 page and I get to keep them.

Wonderful ATC, and very glad that I was able to make it to the swap and have something to trade with you. Now I know what Sparrows Fart means. Love the foil effect.
XoX and miss you at the swaps.
