frozen chariot of love

hello everyone!! today i am here to show you a little something i created for the Artist on the Block. i am suppose to be in the middle of packing up the rooms and preparing to sell but i just couldn’t not finish this cute little treasure box.

i started out using some old packaging, a texture fade and the my ATB die. i ran it through the vagabond and started to assemble.

i loved how it turned out!!

i decided i wanted the edges to look like i soldered them but didn’t want to use the melt pot  because was unsure of well plastic in hot powder, so instead out came a sheet of metal from vintaj and started placing it around the outside edges..

i later took this off and used Tim’s industrious stickers which i hot glued to the edges.

so as much as i loved how this was turning out i just knew it needed a little bit of colour so what to do…..

well out came some recycled plastic packaging and my alcohol inks (which i am not sure of what colours as they are packed…) i played a bit trying to decide just what i wanted to create..what did i want to have that pop of colour. and what did  i find but a piece of square plastic i saved from yet another package of goodies. once dripped onto this piece i used my can of air and spread the inks around until i was satisfied on how they turned out.

then this is where i lost myself. i so wish i would have remembered to stop and take pictures but once again i got caught up in the whole process and didn’t stop til the end.

i did however remember to stop to take a picture of the stand i was going to place my chariot on

it is one of the largest fragment pieces which i drilled a hole into each corner and place these fantastic wheels into

so here are some close ups of my wonderful chariot of love.

another picture which i of course forgot to take was once again i used mirrored sheets and placed one on the inside bottom and one on the outside top. i wanted the alcohol inked piece to reflect both inside and outside of my chariot

i love the reflection from the bottom side of the cover.

i even used alcohol inks to colour my frozen charlotte doll!! and a piece of tinsel for her crown!

she is missed…

hello there.. i am here today to show you a layout / shadowbox i did using Art Anthology Sorbets and colorations along with a few pieces of Tim’s paper stash  wallflower (http://www NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.com/TH93110 NULL.HTML) thrown in there. i think the robin was made for me !!!!

there is a short video (less than 5 minutes) for you to take a boo at over on the Art Anthology YouTube page ( you can find the link here (http://wp NULL.me/p4DD9n-14N)) to show you how long it takes me to do a layout!! (HOURS!!)

i am linking this posting up to

Simon Says Stamp (http://www NULL.simonsaysstampblog NULL.com/mondaychallenge/) Monday challenge this week, using white in any way. i used a black and WHITE picture as well as whitespace, yes for me that is white space!.

there are a lot of symbols in this piece for me. i created it based off my thoughts/feelings/emotions when i happened to snap this picture of my son cleaning off one of my mom’s grave markers during a recent trip up to visit her and my Nanny.

i learned of my mom’s passing on a really late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. i truly believe she comes back to let me know all is okay through a robin. there are three feathers to symbolize that she is with her Dad and her brother Blaine…they truly were birds of a feather. there are 4 eggs to symbolize us, her children, the 11 and 18 are the birth numbers of both her and my son. there are 6 and 49 letters as the last thing i remember being told what she was doing was going to get a paper and pen to write down the logo 6/49 numbers after returning home from playing bingo with my Nanny, her mom.

this by far is one of my most treasured layouts. in the tag tucked in behind at the top is a little message.  thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget that it is the little things that make a big difference. write on those layouts/projects….even if you have bad penmanship. the journalling is probably more important than anything else to those who will treasure your art.
