New Projects...

Happy Wednesday! Today I want to share with you a few of the projects I worked on for SiSversary.

This first one was my entry for the plate decorating contest. 20 people were given a 3" tin plate and told to decorate it any way they choose. For some reason I envisioned a woman's face when I saw the plate, and here is what I came up with. I call her plate girl...
To make her I used acrylic paint and a sharpie for the face, punched holes in the plate with my crop-a-dile and added spray-inked pipe cleaner hair. Her dress and hands are made with Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky back canvas, which I painted with acrylic paint. Her shoes are made from SiStv gaffer tape. Plate girl now has a new home with my friend Julie Weiss!


My second project was a layout made from the Moo cards I received in our Moo Card swap. I made the layout on a transparency so you can still read each artist's contact information on the back...
Materials used include hambly transparencies, glossy accents clear adhesive, Jenni Bowlin cow image cut from her journaling card, SiStv red houndstooth gaffer tape, and some patterned paper from the SiSTV "Girl Next Door" collection.

This layout was completed in a Round Robin circle on Saturday nite. It was a lot of fun! Round Robin is a game where everyone sits around a table and each person starts a layout. Every 4 minutes the layouts get passed to the person on your left. Each person gets to contribute something to each layout. The game (and layout) is done when you get your own back. I wanted to make a layout to say thank you to my sweet hubby - the trip to Nashville was a birthday gift from him - he is the greatest!
I started the layout with the background paper, plaid paper, photo and journaling block. I am so happy with how it turned out! After it got all the way back to me, the only things I added are the words "Thank U" and the journaling. All the artists that contributed signed it on the back. I'm happy to say that Michael loves it!

I have lots more projects that I started, but have to still finish before I post.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! I will be back tomorrow with another update!
