Arch stuff

Ok, I'm posting some things that I haven't had time to post. I tried making cards out of Gothic Arches! They are fun- They are shaped like Gothic Arches, but they open like cards! I made these two:I like the birthday one!

I also found the image on this Gothic Arch online, and I immediately thought of the saying! What do you think???
I think she is adorable!


Movie arch

My movie arch is on the Gothic Arch challenge page, but I forgot to post it here! Here it is:

I love the movie Marie Antoinette. I love how it is modern yet realistic. I think Kirsten Dunst does a fantastic job bringing the young queen to life. I loved the colors, the food, the clothes- all of it!

Time arch

Ok, I finished my Time arch for the challenge! I am very disappointed with it, but since the image on the left isn't my stamp, I had to finish. (I only had one of it!) I think I tried too hard to be like Dawn, and I'm not Dawn! OH well! Here it is:
Dark but done! However, I did discover Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mist! OHHHH! I'm in love! There goes all my money!!!

Card post!

Ok, I did get two cards done, but I'm waiting on card #2 to dry, so you just get this one:
My friend just lost her father, so I wanted a nice calming card for her. This scanned dark, but it is very pretty. Sympathy cards are hard for me! I never know what is considered "right!"

Thanks for looking!

Saturday's post- art journal

Hello! Yes, it is Saturday. I finished an art journal entry. I hadn't worked on it in some time, so I'm very happy to say it is up and going again. Hopefully, I will do more in it!

At first, this entry looked very good. As I painted and finished it, I became more and more disappointed. It just doesn't look exactly how I imagined it. Oh well. I actually thought the book pages would enhance it, but they seem to distract. Oh well.

Yes, I am going to Disney World in November for my birthday. That is my husband's present for my 3oth birthday! I'm very anxious! I can hardly wait, but I know the time will pass by quickly- and then we will be there and then gone. Oh well, the anticipation is half the fun, right???

I'm going to work on some cards-hopefully I can get them posted later!

Yes, again!!

Yes, I'm posting again- on the same day! I finished another gothic arch for the same challege! How awesome and productive I feel!
It isn't anything fancy, but I HAD to use the picture. You can't see her face well, but she has such an attitude on her face! I love it! Very simple. Oh well.


New projects

Guess what: It is Tuesday, and I have a chance to post! DH is helping his BIL with his car, so I get some crafting/computer time! I finished two projects. One is a card for a friend.

The dragonfly is outlined in stickles! They are sparklely and fun!!!! The wings are painted in with Twinkling H2Os! I just wanted to encourage her!

My second project, believe it or not, is my gothic arch for the challenge! I finished it tonight! It wasn't what I had originally thought, but I might get that one finished, too! I love the old pinups, and this one was perfect!!!
What do you think? I love it! It is just fun, and so much easier than my other arches. I pulled it together in less than 1 hour. Hey, that's great for me!!!!

I hope to be back sooner rather than later!
