The first four are finished tags with friendly plastic embellishments
These are the tag backgrounds that I made for Calendar tags for friends for Christmas.. They are made on watercolour paper, using Distress inks. I then stamped them with flourish stamps.

I am doing another Nature book with some friends near me, well 1 hour away to be precise.
These are the backs and fronts of the seahorse and tree pages. The backgrounds are inked or digital with stamped images, brads, and sizzix die cuts. There are small shells on the seahorse one. The tall tree images are Crafty individuals.

I am doing a chunky alphabet swap on one of my forum sites, and these are the first 4 letters.
The cards are covered with background papers, some of them my own marbled ones. The letters are sizzix cut outs which I have painted with metalic paints, some are crackled.
The elements are collaged, with embellishments of shrink and friendly plastic.
I have a 4 x 4 obsession at the moment, and have been doing quite a few chunky books for swaps. These are for a private swap, and as my friend loves vintage, that's the main theme of these three. They are collaged, with bits of lace,bows and flowers added.
These are two 6" x 6" canvases that I am going to use as book covers for a journal. The backgrounds are inked with distress inks and stamped. The slightly stronger images are stamped on to tissue paper then applied to the canvas. The key is made from friendly plastic.
I have two more to do, but Xmas cards call. The next two have a seaside theme.

I had a fabulous time on the Artsy weekend with Lin and Leandra. The subject was Time, and we each made a clock, a box, a little book, and a thingy to put on a box or book cover. Lots of different techniques and textures, with lovely colour schemes. The colours on the clock are a lot richer than the photo shows.

The Gothic arch challenge this week is cities. I love Rome, so thought I would do that. I inked the background, and stamped the image of the Colosseum. I then added some bits from an old travel book on Rome.

I'm still in the chunky book mode, and these are for a swap for 4" x4" doors and windows. Having just done the chunky house one, this one was a must. Found it more difficult than I thought. They are a mixture of collage, texture paste, baby wipes, and images.
