Isn't this the neatest birthday Zetti card a girl could ever get! I absolutely love it, thank you my friend Pam McKenzie! You always make me feel so special. I just love my online friends they know what an art chic wants for her birthday! Seriously birthdays were never this good until I met my online art friends! Thanks sooooooo much Pam!

Didn't feel like doin much this week soooooo...

I used a packet of stuff my friend Caryl Hoobler sent to me for inspiration and made a bunch of atc's. Some are for a sweet swap and others are just for trades! Thanks again Caryl!

Here are three ArtChix Post Cards I made for a few friends!

We had a Post Card swap on the Art Chix sister site, and we could each have up to 3 partners so I chose three. Sandy, Suzie, and Val are mine hope they love my cards! I sealed em inmatte finish and then dorlans wax so they would do well on the trip. They go out tomorrow on my birthday, right before I go to lunch with Daddy.
I also made a lotto card for the groups first lotto even though I can't be in the drawing because I am the one drawing a name this round. I am so glad I thought to have this site and that Helga liked the idea! Love these talented ladies and a man!

I am teaching a Steam Punk Class!

Yes I am teaching a class and what's more it's free and online! Starting May 15th, I will be teaching a class on how to make a Steam Punk Shadow Box and backdrop canvas! Basically some ins and outs I learned as I made mine. You can see my box here below. It was fun and very stimulating. If you want to take the class all you need are some old pictures of the industrial revolution. Bits of collage pieces you think might be of interest. Bobbles you might have found on your travels to the antique stores or even the dump! Some gesso, some e 6000 glue, paint brushes, tissue paper with victorian designs or basic black and white shapes. Old junk jewellry and I even used some dried flowers. I kept mine sepia and black and white but the sky is the limit! I also had some tiny metal frames, some krylon silver paint to spray on junk plastic pieces.
I will be teaching the class on the following group:
