OY I like that you are incorporating child/slave labor into your art. I almost wish I had a source  Wink. That netting over everything is a great idea, nicely done!

LisaTeacher I really love what you did with the charms at the bottom and helmet hair is great!

I received the most fabulous page ever yesterday from Racky...check this one out!

Isn't my muse Oliva just grand! I adore her crown, her wand, her fabulous taggy necklace and you simply must check out how she attached the index card/ticket on the side! Fantastic!

*can you tell I LOVE this page*


And then if that wasn't enough I have my fa mil-iar on the back in the form of a rat.

Racky I just love it!

I'm glad you like it, babs! I put the little index tab there so when you flip through your book, it's easy to find your muse if you need her. Also, every muse needs a familiar; I thought your muse would probably want a rat as opposed to a black cat.  Cheesy

That crown is made from a cigar label. Unfortunately, my hubby (provider of labels) thinks that's not the best cigar, so they are hard to find here. Don't you think he should sacrifice more for my art?

I'm thinking you got my muse dead on with the familiar  Wink

And your hubby totally needs to sacrifice for your art...and our pleasure. We totally need more eye candy like that! That crown is so cool and clever as well as the index tab. Ha and here I thought I was being all clever by cutting them out, I'm so silly  Grin

i don't know how i got so far behind again! there's just too much awesomeness in this gallery!

OY, i think i already commented on yours, but again, LOVE the layers and the stitching! it's just so damn cool!

wow heini! i LOVE the bright colours! that's gorgeous!

colorfuldayz, that's gorgeous! i've said it before, but i really really love the ink work you do on your pages, it's so awesome. i so wish i could do it! the beads are gorgeous too!

OY, the tulle and the hem lace are so awesome! i love all the layering you've been doing.

lisateacher, i love the hair ad, and i love the danglies, but i REALLY love how glossy her hair is! what did you use to do that? it's so perfect!  what are the danglies? they look like shrink plastic!

and i already raved about racky's page!



i received a great page from LGD today!

the frog is this very cool handmade green paper, it's all textured and awesome! i LOVE the use of the cocktail fruit thingy as the throat, damn, so clever! (it arrived folded over, and then there is a little purple tag that slides over to hold it open!) it's a funny coincidence, because i have a ridiculous love of those straws (my ex eventually banned me from buying anymore, because they were taking over the kitchen shelf!).

the back is more pretty paper, with a small envelope glued on. inside the envelope is a tag that states "#3681 fact: the bell frog is most creative when his threat swells orange. CD field guide to crafty occurances 2008" i love the little envelope!

she sent me a note, explaining how to open up the frog's throat (which is good, cause i'm having a dopey day, and i didn't even realize it was frog until i turned the page right side up!), and said that the page was meant to feel like it came "from an environmental field book full of discoveries of the natural world". very cool! i love the little details!

thanks so much LGD!

I got such a great page from babs today! I love this: it's one of her famous birds with a really cool rusty gear gut. If you look closely, you can see, though, that he's all heart.  Cheesy



And the back: "Create every day"


I don't think I can put this one in a book. It may have to hang up over my desk. Thanks, babs! What a great page!!
