Some of What You See…

Today I thought I would share how some of the buttons in my sidebar were made…
This first button is a button I posted at the Flicker site to fight against art piracy. This was all digitally created using the wonderful digital collage sheets by itkupilli. Here it is up close:

You may use the button as long as you link it to the
Stop Art Piracy Campaign.
For my “Create” button, I used a very inexpensive 4 x 4 canvas I had hanging around my studio for “someday”. :) Well, someday finally came and I decided to paint the canvas, print and cut some graphics from the fabulous Graphics Fairy and actually cut letters out of old magazines and used Mod Podge to glue and seal. Then I took it into Photoshop, added a bevel and a light shadow and posted it in my sidebar. I really do believe everyone should create what they dream! Here is a closer look:

For my “Thank You From the Bottom of My Heart” I again used a 4 x 4 canvas, used Mod Podge to add tissue paper for texture prior to painting, cut graphics from the Graphics Fairy, punched a crown from paper, add a few priceless stones (LOL), heavily distressed it with Distress Inks, cut the letters from magazines and finished it with Mod Podge to glue and seal. It was actually sent as a “thank you” gift to a friend. I took the photo before I sent it on its journey, took it into Photoshop, and once again added a bevel and a shadow. I really do thank all who follow me from the bottom of my heart! Here it is up close:


Thank you for looking!

The Little Book of Me...

I decided to do a collage mini album reflecting me. It contains my history, my life influences, my favorite TV shows, my art, and my dreams. I love to combine my digital art with actual scrapping, so this little album does both. I have a studio where I attempt to sit every night after dinner and create whatever I feel like doing. I really had fun doing it for hour upon hour over about a two week period. I decided to make it in the shape of a star album. Please enjoy the photos.

Here is the cover...I kept it rather plain becasue the book is so busy...

Here is my dream page:

And here is the view from the top...

As always, your comments are very appreciated.

4 x 4 Mini Album

I just LOVE doing mini albums for family and friends. Probably because they make such fun unexpected gifts for people and go rather quickly. Below is my most recent one. The tag hanging on the front of the album is two-sided...her picture is on one side and his picture is on the other. I actually got to use my new "Cinch" to bind it together. It worked great and was extremely easy to use. If you have any questions just email me. Thanks for looking!
