Here is the new blue metal roof we had put on last weekend.I picked the color blue because I thought it would look nice against the blue sky.And besides on our road we have at least ten other neighbors with metal roofs green and red.The bad part about all this was we had to remove the dish DSL and went "with out" internet from Saturday till today.And my Husband and I will be starting to put up a ceiling in the den and bed room.See the new roof was because we sprang a leak.Me and Steve will be putting up the ceiling our selves,LIFE gets in the way!
Here is the scare crow...parts.I took pictures to add here because I thought some one might like to use it for them selfs.I still don't have them alll cut out and the edges and details added but time will tell,they need to be finished by Oct20th. But as you will see in my next post (LIFE GETS IN THE WAY)
This is the start of the scarecrows I chose to make for the Halloween ATC art doll swap I'm having in Valeries group.I couldn't resist using the coffee can foil to make the face.I painted the foil with acrilic paint and then dry brushed it to make it look more like a old weathered corn bag.
Here are two more collages I made on the collage machine..what I like about the computer generated collage maker is that it lets you not only put a collage together. It allowed you the re-size and change the transparency of the item you have chosen. The page has a way to save you work or for you to print it out.I wasn't able to do that so I just took pictures with my camera and cropped it.
I just had to blog about this and share with everybody.This is a interactive page that lets you create collages and do other fun imaginative stuff. If you want to go to the web page click on the title and it will take you there.
Here is my Swamp Na Na Fortune My sewing machine is broken.And so there is no sewing on her.I cut strips of material and ribbons for the skirt and made a loop around a wire tie.Then I put that around her waist.The bats and bells are a symbol of good luck. So is the monkey bead skull.
These are the charms I made for the Sum Of All ATC's yahoo group I'm in.I made eight charms but both sides are the same,so I made 16 foil pieces and glued them together with E-6000 glue.Then I used bic permanent markers to color them.They are very light weight.Look under the labels listed on the left of my blog and you can see the tutorial I have to show how.
This is the little VooDoo doll I've been working on for a swap in Kas's the dark side group.Not even close to being done yet.I still have to add her dress and all the little money drawing charms that will go on that.The head is made out of a jewelry gourd,and then I used some sculp epox for the face & glasses.The eyes I made out of some small minny magnifying glass pieces I had.This will be a long post so I will add some more latter.
Here are the two ATC art dolls that came to me from Tess C. and Deb F. I just love mermaids...who doesn't? Tess made the one with the long flowing hair.And the top is made out of real sea weed!Deb made the one with the beed bubble top.The little fish and sew weed stuff in the backround is dimentional.Thanks girls this was a great swap,I don't have any mermaids.I have promaced my sister to make one and send to her.But she might not get it till christmas.
