Phizzy, that is so cool that Mike liked them! Makes me all happy!  Grin

Okay, I received my wonderful package today from ARoze, this is so cool!

My wonderful clown shrine! This thing is so chunky, I just love it. Each piece has hinges that hold the sections together and is amazingly well put together.

Close-up of the clown puppets. Painstakingly cut out and attached with strings to the top of each window.

Another one.

One more.

The gorgeous chunky clown book and check out the shrinky clowns and tickets on the fibers...amazing!

One shot of one of the pages. Each pages has a letter and spells out Wonder.

I LOVE it!!
Thanks ARoze!

&*%@!!  Tongue

One more try at this and then I'm going to start tearing my hair out officially, bleh!

I lost my first try to unknown reasons after trying to post a lengthy reply and the second attempt ended badly when I tried to recover and post again but then made the mistake of hitting spell check and Internet Explorer shut me down...argh!


Let's try again.

I receved some very lovely things from Racky!
As inspired from my wists, some wine charms...check out the wording, hehe.


I love these little rattie cards


A close up

My most wonderful artwork

A close up so you can all see the wonderful fiddly bits

Racky, I adore everything!!

Mine is on its way...Hope it arrives very soon.

13  Re: Altered Tags Swap round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by FishStikks on: September 04, 2008 07:11:34 PM
*now entering...one very horrible swap partner*

Finally I've made my way over here with apologies to my partners for being so lax about getting my tags posted. I have now received all of my tags, yay! Needless to say that means I've got lots of pics to share.

You've already seen the gorgeous bee tag that ARoze made for me and I love those golden bees, aren't they great! And a Cute little bee from Katcal, check out the great little silver bee on the ribbon!

The back sides. Unfortunately the gold bees on ARozes' tag don't show up here,  Tongue.

Tag from Sarcastra featuring actual bee wings! This of course didn't scan well but there are over 30 little wings on there! And then there is this totally awesome tree tag from alteredmommy, I adore this! A place for all my bees to live too.

I love the quote on the back of this tag and check out the little collaged trees on alteredmommys' tag.

What awesome tags I received this round. Thanks go out to all of my partners and I appreciate your patience with me.
Here's hoping my tags start showing up real soon.

14  Re: Acrylic Paint on Canvas Tote Bag? in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by FishStikks on: June 29, 2008 06:05:01 AM
I just did a canvas tote using acrylics so I highly recommend it. I first used gesso on the area I wanted to paint and then sanded it, that helps it from getting too stiff and also removes all those little lumps you invaribly get. I then used my acrylics on it and sealed it with matte modge podge which came out a little glossier than I thought it would but the flash from my camera makes it look glossier than it really is.

Would love to see yours when you get it done.

HA! I just love that goat stamp. What a pretty page AM and I love the idea of embossing one element like that!

I too keep all those little bits and pieces but what I don't do is use them, hehe. I just keep saving them. I'm so terrible about that but I love all my bits and pieces.

I just learned that Tristitia received the page I sent her and she asked if I could post it.
I stalked her a bit to find out what things she might like and I saw bugs...ooh I like bugs and after seeing a tute on how to make these really cool wings on someone's blog I figured I had my page idea. I give you bugs.

I fell so far behind in commenting I fear there is no way I could ever catch up but suffice it to say that there are some elements on some of these pages that really captured my attention.
The chicken wire, the stitched page, those wonderful pen nib stamps, the fabulous crow shrinky charms, the cool circus page and those flying clocks!
Racky and Phizzy your pages are both quite wonderful. This has been the most amazing gallery, so diverse with wonderful techniques.

Speaking of which, here is a seriously great page from Tristitia, my last one. There is just so much to see and to feel and I love looking at this.

I only hope that my scan even begins to do this page justice.
Thanks Tristitia, this is one beautiful page and I love it!

Phizzy I love how you made that one look like a filmstrip and winding those leaves through there like that is wonderful. I've always adored those leaves.

AM I like how creepily cool you made those kids on that round piece, definately fits the period and the dangly bits are wonderful. That little bottle looks familiar.  Wink

I received my most wonderful page from AM yesterday but have been under the weather and didn't get this scanned until this morning.
Isn't she lovely...

I really like the modern hairstyle directions and those fantastically RED painted lips...wowzer!

Meh! I have no idea why the back scanned larger.  Roll Eyes

Thanks AM! She's wonderful!

Phizzy I'm truly loving that little beach house, it's so you.

ARoze I don't know where you shop for papers but I really think you need to send a stack of them to me.  Grin I also really love those metal letters.

Mina what a pretty pink spring page.

Goatgoddess I love the colors on your bee dance page, so cute.

I finally received my very last page and from Reenreen:

Really love the way you used the dots to make the picture Reen. Thank you.

I've decided to do one last tip-in page...for myself. I'm not sure exactly what I want to do but I figured that I have all these extra pages so I really should do one more...right.
I will then get all of my book put together and then post it.
My book with all these great people is going to look fantastic all put together.
Thank you everyone.

Beautiful use of that mica ARoze!

The box of 1000 of those tags that I bought just came in when I was doing this piece and AM's so I felt I had to use them somehow. I really liked the way they looked around the halo and I'm very glad you guys do too.
I'm really happy that you liked what I did for you Phizzy. Squiffy and all.  Grin

I received from ARoze yesterday as well. Here is my Mom.

I love this paper that you used ARoze and the cute little matching but yet non matching green buttons. Thank you.

Kat I love the orange photo you did for AM, very lovely.

Phizzy I'm totally loving what you are doing with the book covers and I love the hinges!

I received the twins from Racky today and look how fabulous they are!

The back with a fabulous stamp.

Too funny about the card you used for the background Racky as my Grandmother (the twins Mother) always ALWAYS sent me a birthday card that looked just like this one, well, minus the twins of course.
I love how you made it look as though they are actually holding the string in their little hands. Fabulous job!
