Stuff I did recently

First, my 2009 Valentine's mixed media collage:

This was way cool because I found the neatest LED chandelier embellishment--no kidding, it really lights up! Everything else was begged, borrowed, or scraped up off a floor; so I really didn't mind that I actually paid full price for the chandelier. Sometimes a girl just has to spoil herself, doncha think?

Next up, a mermaid theme ATC I did for the Altered StART Yahoo group:

I was very pleased with this one as well. I used junk mail, a freebie image I found online, packaging scraps, two old cards glued together, a random little rhinestone, and some microbeads bought at the last 90% off sale at Beverly's to form the "stars shot madly". The quote, of course is The Bard's, from A Midsummer Night's Dream. You can't see the back because I forgot to take the shot before mailing it off to its new owner, but I really liked it too. I had spackled sea colors of all kinds mingling together making a nice backdrop for my info card, and up in the corner there's a really cute fishy-swishy just watching over it all. Hope Kim likes it.

Final comment 'cuz the allergy meds are really making me woozy. The pics are way out of proportion, The real ATC measures 3.5" by 2.5" and the Valentine collage is much, much bigger at 12"x6", not counting the gold rope around it.

All right, I am officially in Woooozzville now so we'll have to pick up where we left off next time.,

Well now we know why you're called the crafty bag lady! I think the top one should be called "He's just not that into you."
