ATC Swap

I am hosting an ATC swap on Facebook...very unofficial of course, and this is my piece, nothing over the top, I went quite simple this time...but keep thinking I need to add something else to it lol

I have used embossing, fusible fim/fantasy film and German scrap.

Collage Camp

KC Willis is an amazing collage artist who's ideas just seem to roll along like a tumbleweed on a journey across the lands. She is a super inspiration to all she meets and for newbies to fabric art like myself she is an ideal muse, so when I was given the chance to "attend" the KC Willis Collage Camp (online), I leapt at the chance and am more than happy that I have. You can join online or buy the DVDs and work your own way. Either way I am sure you will be glad you did.

more pieces finished for the jigsaw swap

here are a few pieces I finished today for the jigsaw swap I'm in...
I must say that I did find some of the colour choices somewhat challenging...such as the pastel, not shown here yet. But all in all I think they turned out really quite well :)
products used include: crackle medium, metal shim, gold leaf, embossing, starburst stains, rub n' buff, stamps, impasto.

I love the skeleton leaf with the gold embossing on it :)
