Artchix Studio Contest

Thank you Artchix for offering a free digital sample of Helga's altered book pages. I used the sheet to make a wooden pendant necklace. The design is placed on a 1.5" wooden circle that I colored with watercolor crayons. The paper design is sealed with Beacon Fast Decoupage. Check out the Artchix blog and website, you will be inspired!

Treats for You Tag

Halloween Treats Tag

This tag was created from a Designed2Delight image. They have a progressive weekly challenge. If you go to their site on the first Friday of the month you get an image to use in your artwork. Use it and post to their challenge and you will receive a new digital stamp in your email. So easy to do, but a lot of fun.

I colored the tag with the Paint program on my computer and markers. I used some orange glitter on the pumpkins.

Hope Butterfly

Hope Butterfly Tag

I created this tag with an image from Designed2Delight. It is part of a progressive challenge they sponsor throughout the month. Check it out! I printed the design on light pink paper and colored it with chalks and colored pencils. I then placed it on a printed paper and cut around the design leaving a colorful border. It is embellished with glitter, a wire antenna and yarn.

Along with the challenge at Designed2Delight, I am also entering this tag in the following challenges:
