Time For Love

That's the Theme for the latest journal swap I'm playing in and below is the page I created for Rhea.
I just love it when you know exactly what you want to create and it turns out how you envisioned.
I created a pocket watch using Tim Holtz Bigz Die.
Added a chain, a charm, a pair of tickets and a word stick and its ready for romance.

This is a close up of the clock. I made multiple layers of the die cut and filled it with gears and a heart. There is even a "crystal" made from repackaged plastic packaging.
Even the back has a heart. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did creating it....

With One Image Card Swap

Yeah, I know it looks like a kaleidoscope, but its just my latest creations from a swap I'm playing in.
Every player got the same image and you were to create 6 -5x7 cards using the same image.
Still wanting mine to all be one of a kind I decided to make each one a different color.

Here are all of my creations. I pixelated the image just slightly and colored each one with Distress inks through a stencil to really give them a "pop art" look.
I'm really happy in the way they turned out and hope the recipients like them as well.

Lynn's Round Robin Journal

The current journal I just finished on the round robin is for
Lynn Stevens. The theme of her journal is vintage Paris and this is my page for her.
When I saw this image I knew I just had to use it.
Here is a close up of the flowers I created. I used vintage buttons for the centers. 

I double layered a die cut of the Eiffel tower to give it more depth.
And this is the back.
I found this incredible vintage fashion image and knew it would be perfect for the theme. I added some rub ons and rosettes.

Of course I had to add some bling to add some texture and highlight to the black and white imagery.
I hope she likes it....
