Okay, i've gotten another one. It features an icon of bizarre but entertaining fashion choices, Dennis Rodman.

This one is from Teeisme, and it's title is "Rodman's Rainbow":

Thanks, Tee, my day is now brighter. Score!

Alright! woohoo!

Here's the hairdo atc i received from Rackycoo, titled, "The Goal".

Hmm. came out a tad large, but oh well. Aint it hilarious? It reminds me of this cousin I have who, even though she had a B.A., had trouble finding a job due to her refusing to look a little more mainstream.

Here's mine for the week:

I hope I haven't subconsiously copied someone here. It seems like I saw an atc or collage called Nature girl recently, but I went with it anyway. It's a common phrase.

Theres a good bit you can't see about this card. I used Perfect Pearls to highlight her scarf and flowers, and the big flowers are fabric ones with rhinestones in the middle. It was a fun one! But arent they all?  Grin

Meh. i hate how the scanner made this one look.  Tongue

14  The Mighty Mississippi at sunrise from waay up high... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FerretNose on: January 10, 2007 12:48:54 PM
Okay. My hubby, who is a budding photographer, works at the Domino Sugar refinery which is basically across the river from New Orleans. The tallest part of the refinery, which is well over 100 years old, is where he went to take these. I myself would have had a heart attack halfway up, and almost had one anyway when I saw where he went to get these photos.  Tongue  I just have to share these, he's a shy one.

In the background of this picture, you can see just part of the New Orleans skyline. In the foreground, you see some of the loading platforms, where sugar is loaded onto trains and raw materials are offloaded. You can see the railroad.

In this picture, the Steamboat Natchez approaches, and the N.O. skyline is more clear.

For comparison purposes, here is a super old postcard of the refinery. My hubby took his pics from that tallest building you see there. He was facing the direction where the photographer who took this postcard pic would have been standing.

Thanks for looking. Boy is he gonna be surprised when he gets home from his hard day of slogging around in molasses to find that I have exposed his photos to the world. muhuhahaha!

Alright yall, here is my very first ATC. The background is stamped with fluid chalk ink. The black swirly bits and the border was just doodles that I did. Around the face, which is a stamp, it says, "Sometimes art is nothing but a strange accident." I aged the card with chalks, colored the face with chalks, but the lips are embossed with Ranger red tinsel, which I have discovered I hate dealing with. You cant tell, but the lips are quite shiny. I have no idea what i was going for here...

... but I hope yall think it looks okay. Thanx for lookin'!

16  Vintage sheet music remade as wrapping paper in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by FerretNose on: December 18, 2006 04:47:28 PM
This is an X-mas gift for my Dad, which I wrapped with the following: A page from a real 1920's musical score to the Pirates of Penzance. While still flat, I stamped an antique car, key, pocket watch, victrola, and typewriter key letters/numbers in red chalk ink. Then I aged a tag with chalks and stamped on it. Wrapped the gift in the paper, tied it with old rope, and voila- something pretty yey not frou-frou. What do yall think?

Thanks for looking!

On this one, I used some toile x-mas wrap, glitter, sticker, ribbon, and a cut out from a catalog:

And this one is mostly made with some coordinating papers I got at Hobby Lobby, but the little boy is a transparency I made on my inkjet, I dyed the lace myself with tea and coffee.

Thank for havin a look-see. Happy Holidays!

18  AOL box+Johnny Cash lyrics+old Ephemera=.... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by FerretNose on: November 22, 2006 09:07:49 PM
This is sort of a birthday, er, "card" I made for my hubby by altering a pressboard AOL box thingie. I used some Johnny Cash lyrics as a poem that is read in parts as the box is opened.

Here's the lid top:

The inside lid top:

The inside of the box itself:

And when you untie the ribbon on the little book:

This was made with real vintage sheet music, some fake vintage ephemera, jewels, embossed felt, etc. I may eventually seal it with modpodge, but for now I like it the way it is.

Thanks for looking!

19  Purple Jar O' Morbid Goodness in Completed Projects by FerretNose on: November 05, 2006 12:43:45 PM
Here's a candleholder lantern thing I made from what was a plain puple jar with a wire holder on it. Victorian style embalming fluid label that I aged with coffee, some black gauze, a silver chain with a heart lock, and there's a spider on the side. Looks really spooky with a candle in the dark.


Thanks for lookin, yall!

20  Turned my hallway into a Morgue- lotsa pics. in Halloween Decor and Parties by FerretNose on: October 18, 2006 07:10:09 PM
This is with other lights on. There's tattered gauze curtains and the Morgue sign at the entrance to the hallway.

And here it is in the dark. There's a red bulb in the light fixture, it's covered in webs.

At the end of the hall, there's this weird old nonfunctioning heater that i put an old mirror with blood drips on. There's a bloody knife, skull candle, and bottles that I added victorian style labels to.

And here's that in the dark:

Close up of the bottles: Embalming fluid and poison. (The poison is red crystal light.)

Hope yall like my morgue! Muhhuhahaha!
