Angel ATC

I made this for the ATC Trail on UKScrappers. I thought the girl looked a bit like an angel so cut around the body shape and added wings. The background is a bit of left over paper from the steam punk screen I made.

Places Art Journal CJ

I was tempted into another Art Journal Circle Journal, this time on UKStampers (link on sidebar). I've been wanting to try more journaling and this was an ideal opportunity. I chose Places as a theme as I love a bit of armchair travel!

My Page

I wanted the background a bit brighter but stuck the girl on and couldn't get her off to stick her on a brighter page- so I used the new page for the cover!

Steampunk ATC

I chose this chain image for my design team ATC  for the challenge over on ATCs and Cards with Attitude. It was lucky as I had some cogs left over from my screen. I embossed a background and stuck the chain image around it before embellishing with embossed cogs. I like the shiny feel it has and can't stop touching it!

Steampunk Screen

Another swap from UKScrappers, this time inspired by the screen from last month's Craft Stamper. I was given Steampunk as a theme which flummoxed me as I don't have any steampunk stuff!

I sprayed the background with Glimmer Mist and randomly stamped some of my Victorian travel and people stamps around, and was surprised to find I had a cog stamp! The die cut cogs were scrounged from someone and embossed in silver and copper.

I made little badges by flattening bottle tops,putting a stamped image in and covering with Glossy Accents. Couldn't resist adding the wings!

I added some little watch parts randomly over the screens then bound it with ribbon.

I covered the back with watch patterned paper and embossed some flourishes in the brightest blue I could find! I really enjoyed making the screen and plan to make another one for myself soon.
