Locks of Love

So I went today and got my hair cut off for locks of love. It was quite stressing but I kind of like the new style. It's cute I guess and the gal got a little carried away on the highlights but it's ok. I'm just glad I could donate to such a great cause!!! The first picture is the before.. the rest are the afters.

Glossy Paper and Ink Technique

I was in the crafting room most of the day yesterday and created some fun ATCs on glossy paper. My Stampin Up demonstrator taught me this cool technique. You use glossy paper and ink up a stamp and stamp your paper, let it dry and then use your brayer and roll over it with another color of ink. It makes a really pretty effect. I used a stencil on the gecko so that I could get a cool color combination.. These are all up for trade except the greeting card, that is going to my nephew for his bday.

Creating More and More

I have been working on creating some really cool ATCs, I got the idea for these from a gal on a trading card list that I'm on and I just had to try the technique. It's a layering technique with use of gesso and stamps. It was fun to make some of these and the picture below with the butterfly was also this type of ATC. I have more to come (they are in the drying process) so come back and check them out.
These are all up for trade too, so if you want to trade please email me.

These were alot of fun to make, I got carried away lol.
