Bicycle Built for two

I was asked to do a stampers challenge for stamping and papercraft using this image by Crafty Individuals.

I went with the bike theme all the way, found a little cigar box and the Little coin bike at a swap meet and knew right away what I would use it for.The coin bike was too cute!!!

Doing the spokes like the bike wheel came next on the left hand side of the box.I did find this stamp did not stamp up very well the image was not clear but this is what I came up with"Bicycle Built For Two"

Hope you like it

Little Meg

Little meg is another of those wonderful Paper Whimsy images they are very haunting and beautiful.
This is done on canvas with golden crackle paste. It is kept very simple as the image needs no help.The crystal piece I picked up at a junk store so I pasted the words behind it onto the glass and used a rub on the top saying "the story so far".
The halve piece is from Papier Valise another wonderful store in Canada


Gabrielle is a piece I have done for Janine Andersons AuzzArt Zine which Is due out again this year.

Janine's last zine was just wonderful and when she asked me to be apart of her next one I was Honoured.This piece was a bit different for me ,I love the haunting Image of the girl who is a Paper Whimsy image,they are too die for.

Beer Butt !!!

I thought I would share with you all a picture of My Dear sis Linda (well we are not blood related) but we are sisters in every sense of the word.
This photo was taken almost 3 years ago now in Bend Oregon in the good ole USA, Jim, me, Linda and of course dear Missy girl .
Linda and I meet along time ago through the wonderful world of the internet,when I came across her site and saw her beautiful optical necklaces,I asked her some questions about how to do them and she was only all too willing to share her knowledge with a stranger across the other side of the world.That seems like a long time ago now.
My husband Mark and I visited with Linda and dear Jim when we were in the states although we were warned by many people on the way to there place when we told them I was visiting a lady I met on the internet,be careful they might be nuts or Linda might not be a woman but a man possibley the Internet has a lot of loonies out there.
Boy we have all laughed about that since,we had alot of laughs then and to this day about it all.
Linda and I talk all the time,but yesterday when we were talking on the phone I had to check twice with what she said they were having for tea there(she has a strange accent LOL)
Jim was cooking" Beer in the butt chicken" LOL yes its true there is such a thing a can of beer inserted into a chickens butt then sewn in so the juices wont escape then rub the breast with assorted herbs and spices.
Cant wait to eat that next time I come over guys,and I thought us Aussies were strange.

Bits N Pieces

Here is a Little find my dear Husband brought me home from a car swap meet, yes thats right girls a car swap meet I was there as well looking for as I call it good quality crap to use in my art work.
This is a old cigar stand I thought it would look cool as a display of some of my art work and my Little collectables
