so it could be an atc, an inchie, alter a domino, a topper for a card...anything goes as long as the size is no bigger than an atc (3.5" x 2.5")

Here's what i made its kind of a Folkart hangie type thing it looks a bit dark in the pic but its not as dark as it looks.

I glued 4 Jenga blocks together (the cheapo ones )its a bit smaller than an atc in size.

Arty Girlz challenge #63 Framed

The challenge this week over on Arty Girlz challenge blog is frames
As usual the interpretation of the theme is down to you so maybe you'll decide to alter a frame, use a frame around a photo on a scrapbook layout, get some wood, hammer and nails and make a frame.......the choice as always is yours.

My mixed media creation was done on a 6x6 canvas and i used a 12x12 designer paper from paper mania's nostalgia warm colossal pack to make my frame and leaving the rose's in as part of it, the indian girl image is from suzan the colours were a bit pale so i used oil pastles over the image to brighten it up i also used them on top of the paint and paper all over.

The picture is rubbish i just couldnt get a decent picture.
