Art Doll - Heather

As previously posted, I thought I'd try my hand at an art doll.... and here she is - 'Heather'. Heather did have two legs, however the legs being made of thin cork meant that one broke whilst being attached with the brad. The legs were sent to me as part of a mystery muse gift from Dawn T. therefore I wasn't able to create another leg for 'Heather'. I have a few ideas in mind for other Art Dolls and I have had a crack a making another one. I'm on the look out for some suitable 'arm' and 'leg' stamps....I have search the net without much success but I get very frustated at the amount of time things take to load on dial up. This frustration may soon be a thing of the past as I'm being sent out a Next Gen wireless broadband modem to try out - who cares about the possible adverse effects from all those electrical pulses being emitted - bring on the faster download!!! LOL.

On a different note, spent a hot but wonderful day at the Aus vs NZ ODI at the WACA with the family yesterday - AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE, OI, OI, OI!!! I was very proud of the way my kids behave considering the stifeling heat!

Til next time - Cheers!

Credit Card Technique

I went along to SAJ's the other week. Kelsey O'Mullane did another great demo with the soot technique, however it was the credit card technique and colour combo that interested me. I have used the credit card technique in the background of this card I did for a staff member who's wife has just had a baby boy. I love the old look of the background and how distressed and aged it looks. I have also become interested in doing Art Dolls. My next post may well show off a creation that I have in off to buy the necessarty components.
