Glass balls for Christmas

My favourite colour is purple!!!I got these very cheap glass balls and swirled solution for glass inside and left for an hour to drain.I added small scoops of mica powders-any that dont contain gum arabic work.The magic comes with one of those puffer things that you get with blo pens.I inserted it into the ball and puffed -adding colours in different places. better than a bent stick!!!

Canvas for Fiona

I have long been facinated by this style and I do love small elements so what better idea than to have a go .I used stampboard game pieces dominos and a glass slide.I hope she likes it

Versatile stamping ATCS

These 3 cards were made with a paperartsy stamp.The first has fantasy film which was heated to make it crinkle over a squiggle background.I cut out the head .
The middle one has a frame cut from metal with the wizard and then textured.this one needs more work but I am not sure what.
The last one is metal flakes on a xyron sheet which I stamped.Then I added some star brads.

Skinny book

This had to be in black and turqoise and was harder than I thought it would be, eventually I went for a simple uncluttered look.

Bind it all ATC display unit

I made this with my bind it all to display ATCs.I have a 7 gypsies one but each card needs notching which I dont like to do.I used some spare plastic wallets cut down to just over 3.5 by 3.Punching these out was a nightmare as I had to do each one individually.They didnt cut cleanly like paper or card and I had to trim each one with a little pair of scissors,I made 3 "covers" from mount board to provide the stand.The covers were a tiny bit larger than the plastic pockets.I used a 5/8 binder but I am going to remove this and use an inch oneas the pages are a bit tight.

More Atcs

The first ATC is on black glssy card with marvys added giving a silvery background which sadly isnt too clear.
The middle one was a shining stones background which I thought was a bit muddy and garish but its amazing how they all look great when stamped up.
The last was acetate coloured with alcohol inks and metallics.

Image transfers

the 2 on the right are image transfers.I am experimenting with this.

Shining stones with starburst stains

I painted on the stains with a foam brush onto glossy card.I used 2 colours then spritzed with mica spray.I liked the way the colours mingle.
