The Lurrrrve Chunky: VooDoo U Love?

  Over on UKScrappers, Chrissie is running another CHUNKY Swap.  A CHUNKY is a 3.5" x 2.5" wooden block which you decorate to your swapees theme/description.

I was given the theme:

The Darker Side of Love.

And voila!  A heart with pins, handmade roses, a skull and a candle.

It will be winging its way to my swappee on Monday.

Thanks for looking.

Purely Paper Collaged Postcards

Over on Collabor-ART Sarah challenged us all to create postcards using a background created by one of the other members and using only scissors, paper ie magazine cut outs and glue.  All my favourites like Paint, ink and stamps where forbidden.  The postcards had to travel through the mail 'naked' ie not in an envelope.  Sonja created backgrounds for me and these are the finished cards, both have been posted.

This cheeky little number is my favourite, all credit to the zebra's!!
I'm drawn to clocks, compasses and globes at the moment and this collage definately reflects the time and travel aspect.

Thanks for Looking :)

Shabby Chic Altered Mouse Trap

Xmasbaby on UKScrappers is hosting an Altered Mouse Trap Swap.  Naturally being something a bit different I signed up for it :)  My swappee is Scrapnanny and she asked for a Shabby Chic theme.  I really enjoyed making this,  I had grand ideas but the canvas was way smaller than I expected.   Hope its meets my swappees expectations :)
