Flight 32

Flight 32
My latest Art Doll

she was a 'hoot' to make, if you've not made an Art Doll yet,

I would really encourage you to make one, they are sooooooo much fun :)

I really love Assemblage art, I love taking the things that have been long discarded like this 50 year old pen nib, or the old worn builders ruler that has knocked about in a tool box for many years long since replaced by a new retractable metal one, the Vintage Optical Testing lens that was used for testing Eyes, Brass Military Wings that never saw service but were packed away with other Army Surplus for years, and there is an WW2 Badge that has been kept for years in a button jar.....

They each mean nothing to the other separately, but together look what they have made, a little piece of Art from my Heart

The face on 'flight 32' is a hand carved bone bead

and the crown is a Brass Stamping that I embossed with Embossing powder.

Hope you have a Delightful Week :)

Chapter 13.........

Well I'm now the mother of a Teenager!
My eldest turned 13 this week
I make my children a little piece of art just for them each birthday, they love their collections and look forward now to receiving a new piece to add to it on their birthdays.

Look at this Cheeky Pair, they make me smile every time I look at them,

a bit like my two boys really!

Now Jacob is a Very Committed Reader, and just loves Maths

so this ATC reflects his two of his passions

the little Arrow and the numbers represents him growing up (Way too Quickly!!!)

I just love Stamping over the top of Old Text Paper,

But particularly love this look, Using a Number Stamp over the top of other Numbers going the opposite direction.

This Fabulous Queens Dresser Draws Stamp was in my last

The Stamping Queen

Design Team pack, I combined it with my Favourite Paper Artsy Numbers stamp, Pages torn from old maths text books, Collections Arrow, Number Stamps, Computer Generated words & my sewing machine.

and my Jacob loved it :)

Her Fathers Eyes

This is the first in a New Series of Collage Pieces I have decided to work on.
The collage pieces themselves may vary in size and shape,
but they will all be sewn onto a 12 x 12" sheet of card stock.
The idea of course is that they become easy to store in a Scrapbook album.
This first piece is Titled
Her Fathers Eyes
If only she could see herself through her Fathers Eyes

Most of the lovely supplies I've used for this piece come from
The Stamping Queen

I have used some Beautiful Collections Vintage Wallpaper Printed Paper, Collections Chipboard Frame, Bracket, and word, Elegance Rub-ons- SB537, pages torn from an old Maths book, rusty old pen nib,number stamps, Versa Ink pads, vintage 1/2 stamp, and my sewing machine :)
You are a Masterpiece!
