Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) are very popular in the stamping world and here is a little album I made to hold my special cards. I cut up a shirt size gift box to make the covers and pages. The cover and pages were decorated with stamp pads and the direct to paper method, rubber stamps and stickers. Two holes were punched on the left handside of the cover and all pages. A coated pony tail elastic was pulled through the holes and a tree twig was used to secure the pages. Fibers were tied to the twig.

The pages on the inside of the album are decorated and then a clear plastic ATC sleeve is run through a Xyron machine and adhered to the center of each page. The ATC's are then slid into the clear sleeves

Encaustic Kimono

I was playing around my my encaustic waxes today and attempted to make a kimono with the waxes. My freehand drawing with the stylus writing tip needs a lot of work. Actually, what I need is drawing lessons.

Blossom Necklace

I made this necklace for an on-line challenge. The gold flower is made from Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.
