Finally finished all my 3 x 3's for the swap on Altered Designs. I really enjoyed doing this - I got a chance to play, something that doesn't happen all that much lately. I dug into the stash I've been collecting and it was really nice to be able to use my treasures on these little peices of art! And I'm so pleased with how they turned out - I hope the gals who receive them are happy with them!

There's been a lot going on so haven't posted much art lately. We've had the requisite number of crises and catatstrophes at work - lots of drama and noise - but things seem to have settled down now for the short term. I've been laid up sick with a lousy cold - I guess that's what happens when you brag about not falling victim to a bad cold for years....the cold god decides to pay you back!
I'm still working on some art to post - hopefully later this afternoon as I'm finishing up some projects that I've fallen behind in completing. Hopefully I'll be able to get thoses worked out and posted later this afternoon.
In the meantime, here's an ATC I did for the Stampington ATC swap over on CCSwaps. The background paper is a scrap of paper towel that was under my paper when I was making my painted acrylic backgrounds. I thought it was too nice to throw away so I kept it to use and luckily it came in handy here. It has bits of gold paint, which probably don't show up that well on the scan, but it's quite pretty when you view it in person. The down side is that because the paper was textured, the stamped imaged isn't as dark as I would have liked it .

Finally pretty well caught up with everything on the list. My project list has shrunk considerably - when will I learn that I cannot over-commit myself? My problem is that there is so much I want to do "artwise" but so little time to do it!
Here are two more pages from my Skinny Book swap. I'm not sure if they are finished yet so I've set them aside to germinate for a couple of days and then I'll re-evalute to see if I want to do more on them.

It's been a busy several weeks and my posting fell way behind. Hopefully I can get back into the groove again and bring my blog back up to date. I've mentioned the Skinny Book Swap being hosted over at the Altered Abbey and have finally finished my pages - well almost! I still have a bit of tweaking to do but it's 90% finished so so I thought I'd give you a little peak. I hope you enjoy them.
