Chunky alphabet book

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.

4" x 4" pages

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.

6" x 6" canvas board book covers.

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.

Artsy weekend

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.

Chunky house tags

These are for a house tag swap, and measure 4" x 2 1/2". They were to have the shape of a house on, and some sort of 'chunk', ribbon, embellishments etc. All the images are stamped, with inked or collages backgrounds.
