tutorials and was off to the races, finally. I started with a Citra Solv background and then did some flower stamping with acrylic paint; then cut apart more flowers to make butterflies with a bead body and wire antennae. Voila!

And a big Happy Birthday (for real) to my son Paul! 24 years today! Ahhhhhhh, I can remember it like it was yesterday!

Grungy Monday challenge (21 I think it is). I also wanted to do a necklace for the September lottery at paperartistsonline so I combined the two and came up with this piece. It's a mini collage with a teacup theme and I incorporated a couple of the techniques that Tim describes on his blog. I used the oval facet and some of my newly purchased beads from my visit to Shipwreck Beads last month. ( If you're in the Olympia, Washington area at all--a must see--bring your wallet). It was a little difficult to photograph the facet since it has faux-etching on the top, but you can see the little teacup at the bottom. Tomorrow we're going salmon fishing. Hope we get a big one!

I'm hosting a swap over at paperartistsonline and I spent the week end finishing up my pieces for it. I decided to go for a Tim Holtz inspired theme on mine and I have fallen in love with that new resist paper of his. I used an entire sheet on each piece. I love how it takes the distress ink so well and the resist just POPS!
