Smiley Thanks girl!

They are FAKE metal plates - I used glue stick to put a gold foil paper onto chipboard, burnished it down well, then used a black pen to "etch" the words into it.  Draw on some fake screws, and rub away the ink, leaving just a hint of it to look like oxidation.  Easy and fun!
Looks real in person too.

A few more for today:

Gymnast
Birds of a Feather set G


Guy

Waiting

Ollie

It's NOT Junk It's Ephemera!

Off ALL meds for the first time in about 5 years.  My focus and creativity comes in short bursts now, followed by long stretches of confusion and haze.  MUST. GET. NEW. MEDS. lol

Korin
pen on vintage Asian book page with paper, washi and gold paint pen, ink accents
I had actually drawn a whole face, hated it, but this half turned out ok, so I reworked it into a collage  Grin


Viva!
a good example of confusion and haze striking in the middle of creation.


Le Chat

Today's work:

My first 2 fabric ATCs, both hand embroidered with button & glass bead accents.  Not really sure they belong in papercrafts, but don't want to separate them from my gallery.

Moon Goddess


Earth Goddess


They were both a lot trickier than I had imagined.  The small scale wasnt so much the issue as making sure the finished piece would be the right size. They are both backed with felt.

Coral Dancer
yet another collage in this series. 


Too Much Info!


She Daydreams of Freedom

camera flash caught the "glass" (high gloss glue)

There was also another geisha silhouette, but I forgot to upload her here. Same as the others with different papers.

I am also working on a challenge card.  A friend wanted a private trade.  She wanted a geisha theme, I wanted Einstein (she can rock a caricature).  So now we are each making Einstein AS a geisha!

Just 2 cards to post tonight.
Spent the rest of the time cutting backings and smooshing glue stick all over the place.
Is it just mine, or do glue sticks stink?

First:

La Sirena
request for a loteria card featuring this exact mermaid, on a playing card base.  I used a card from the casino where I worked as a dealer.
The metallic gel pen accents in gold and rose do not photograph well.


The next one is a card I made for ME  Smiley
Since switching meds, I have little patience with people.  My withdrawl inspired this card.
