Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante Altered Canvas

Hey everyone!  I just finished a mixed media project that I thought I would share with you.   I was inspired by the  "Modern Marvels" on this paper by G45 to create a canvas piece this morning and it took me a couple of hours to complete this project.  I used several techniques and lots of different product. If you know my work, this is "SO" not my style but I want to make 2011 the year of "Stepping Out".  I want to venture out and try different things, techniques, style etc. I would LOVE to know what you think of my art piece so please leave me a comment.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Josie!

Hi everyone!  I am playing catch up with the Birthday card posts.  My husband's sister Josie had a birthday in January and I did get her card out on time but just recently decided to share them so here it is.  Josie has a Military (ARMY) family so...I thought of "Cheeky Mate" (she is so cute).   Check out her "dog tags"!  I found them on line when I was working on my husband's ARMY mini album.  My cards are very simple because I am just learning, but she just LOVED her card.  I hope you like it as well :-).  See ya in a bit with another card!

Cheeky Cherry Pie Birthday Card

This is a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law Irma and I just thought I would share it with you.  I have a goal for 2011 and it is to MAKE each of my brothers, sisters, sister-in-laws, and brother-in-laws their birthday cards.  Irma is my husband's sister and she loves to bake so of course I thought of "Cheeky Cherry Pie".  Happy Birthday Irma!!
I used the Farmers Market paper collection by Shabby Green Door for Irma's card.  Notice the cute rolling pin and bowl set?  I stitched around the paper with my sewing machine before I added the paper to a craft cardstock A2 card.  I then used my Nestabilities Label 4 die, and finally Cheeky Cherry Pie is colored with my Copic markers and her dress, apron, headband and pie are paper pieced with the same collection.  Thanks for stopping by!
