Happy Halloween

I have been so lax in keeping up my blog lately....I guess that is what "blogging without obligation" is all about though. right? I have been doing a little art and thought I might share some with you.

Creepy Cottages
Here we have some more little houses, but in a Halloween genre. This was another swap I hosted on Paper Traders. Each of us made little "haunted houses" to swap. I had so much fun making these little creepy houses that I also made some to give away. All of them are layered to make them dimensional although that is hard to see in the pictures.

Bobbin Book Pages
This was another Paper Traders Swap. We made little book pages from cardboard embroidery bobbins. I painted mine with Making Memories paint, then added T!m Holtz printed masking tape, pictures, and rub-on words; then rubbed them with distress ink. They turned out pretty cute!

My art for Keron's Swaps

Little Houses
My friend Keron hosted two swaps recently on our Paper Traders Yahoo group. The first was a little house swap. I love little houses and this was so fun to do. My favorite"arting pal" Quincy and I got together one extended weekend and made ours. The houses turned out so cute and "playing" with Quincy was the best part.

Here are mine:
And here are Quincy's:
Even though we both used pieces from the same set of chipboard houses from Maya Road, our choices of materials made them unique. Aren't they sweet? We think so!

Swapping Silliness
The second swap Keron hosted was Swapping Silliness ba
sed loosely around 'the da vinci COD' by Chris Riddell. We were to make ATCs featuring movie titles changing them to make them silly. It was great fun, although challenging to come up with ideas. Here are my creations.
