as promised...OR...as threatened...depending on your perspective!
(eyes and lips cut from magazines; various sizes of circles cut with ek success punches from a magazine, tin foil, & an envelope from our payroll company; colorbox inks)
this is one of lovely husband jeff's favorites, for some reason...i think it is the GIANT EYES!
(lots of weird pink ephemera from my vast collection including: beads, buttons, game pieces, tiny iron-on patches, fabric & plastic flowers, and a tiny wooden french poodle that i cannot for the life of me imagine whence it came! + letter stickers: sei, lil davis, k&co)
the photo of me with the text on it is the companion piece to my first ever ATC cards made for my first ever swap!!! i don't think i am allowed to show the cards themselves yet... (and in all honesty, i am rather disappointed with how they came out) ...but hopefully it's all right to show my self-portrait thingie. we were asked to included a little info about ourselves. i never know *WHAT* to write for those things: name, rank & serial number? (a bit dull) age, weight & annual salary?? (i could tell ya...but i'd have to kill ya...) so eventually i did what i usually do, which is waffle on a bit irrelevantly, and then format said wafflage into cool fonts so it looks ON PURPOSE! :)
(torn up bits of newspaper glued on randomly; dandelion & fancy leaf stamps a gift from elizabeth wickland (see? i told ya i was gonna learn how to mount them!) provocraft alphabet roller-stamp; ranger ink)
this is one of *MY* favorite pages...it was inspired by the way the shadows of dandelions and queen anne's lace that grow next to our road look when the sun is at just the right angle. you might not think that silhoutted weeds & common old tarmac would look very cool...but on this particular day i found them rather charming and wanted to try to capture the look.
