A little bit of this

and a little bit of that.....
A week ago or two THIS PLACE. had a post about altering your paper and I thought that I would try it out... and this is what I created

This was a portable sanitation truck and the sticker read CAUTION, this vehivle is full of political promises!

(see... boring little paper)

I used this old K&C paper that I have had since my Angejolie was born, cut it into a 6 X12 and used the other half to layer a little over the paper, I used my Tim Holtz stamp and 2 more stamps and when I was done stamping & inking I layered the entire paper with medium gel mat to give it some more umph!
I have to say that I silently stalk that blog because they constantly challenge you to try new things. So if you have not checked them out before, I strongly suggest you do.

Now this is a page that I did with my Angejolie last night, she did the painting with a paper towel and some gesso, I layered the papers (all scraps) for her and let her go wild with the little stones.


And this is a little message holder we did for my brother with some scraps. The cute little boy is my nephew. I figure if he wants to look at him on his desk he better make sure he answers his messages pronto!!!!!!! :D :D :D


Well ladies, that is all I have for today, summer kind of makes it hard for me to create and blog as often as I wish I could but a little is better than nothing.
As always, THANK YOU for your sweet comments and have a wonderful weekend.
