Alice in Wonderland - Going Postal

This is a challenge I've been wanting to participate, over at The Altered Alice Blog that I've joined recently they have fun challenges. Alice in Wonderland has been always a Childhood story in my life that I will always remember. The first time I heard or saw this was the Disney Movie version and I fell in love with it. Now a days when Tim Burton came out with his version I though it was genius master piece, very Tim Burton style and of course Johnny Depp's touch it is a spectacular movie.

Anyway the Altered Alice Blog recently announced a challenge called Going Postal so this is what I did, I hope you like it. If you would like to see the process of this beautiful postcard visit my Ustream and have fun watching.

The first 2 photos are the front and the rest is the back of the Postcard.

Happy Fathers Day!

I've made this card for someone that has been like a Father to my son, his uncle. After many years Uncle Ivan has been not only an uncle but a friend and truly a man of honor to my son. They went out to day to share fathers day together and my Son's Father is out of town but we have another card and my son called him to say Happy Father's Day.

I wish all the men I know that are Fathers a Awesome Fathers Day!!!

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox


OWH Belated Flag Day Card

You're a grand old flag,

And forever in peace may you wave.
~George M. Cohan

Compendium of Curiosities 2 - Pockect Watch

So for this technique chosen for this week’s CC2C Challenge on the Studio L3 blog is the Pocket Watch.  The instructions for the technique can be found on page 35 of Tim Holtz’s book Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2.

Love the pocket watch is such an amazing thing to do and then yet I feel is like a little treasure that has disappear in time. Now I've always find pocket watches very sexy and attractive in a man, once in my life I met a man that would use a pocket watch and I was so fascinated with his style, this is such and old tradition but men around the World don't consider this an attractive watch to wear or carry. I have to thank Tim for bringing this tradition back in a Vintage way like everything Tim does an I can keep one forever.

So for this spectacular piece I've used as the background for my Pocket Watch Tim Holtz Paper, some metal embellishments metal clock plate, spinner and small key, the stamped number 63 comes from a Tim Holtz Clear Rubber Stamp Collection that is the bingo number line, some very tiny red lace and a wooden clip that I die with Distress Stains.

I love it, I hope you do as well :)

Operation Write Home - Sketch Challenge #125

OK this one was tricky for me but then I kind of dominated the whole thing lol...I use a very nice paper for this and kind of stay off the Inks and the results were so pretty. Now I have discover a new technique for this, I have use a small punch that is a train and I can never punch anything because my fingers are not that strong to punch with them so I took out my Mini Hammer and BAM!!! My Ustream audience was terrorize LOL but I punch and punch and punch LOL....don't worry I took precautions to not destroy the punch. I hope you like :)

Operation Write Home - Sketch Challenge #124

This was very fun to do, nothing complicated but I did allot nice work on this one. The paper I choose for this one were a stack of 8x8 I love working with paper that is that size anything bigger gets complicated cause I don't have the right tools to cut them with. Allot of inking with Distress Inks so the results are very nice...Enjoy :)

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012 - Tag of June

Ok here is my part on Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012 - Tag of June. Now the technique use here was to alter your photos distress style…

Love the technique, I had allot of fun and memories creating this tag cause Tim choose and old picture of a Little Girl so I thought I would use and old picture of mine when I was a little girl LOL, yeap that is me with wild hair hahaha...Love the picture, I was so little way back then and it looks like I loved ice cream.

Then again I didn't have all the Tim Holtz things he used for his tag, but I manage to create my own and I think the results were splendid, I've made the tissue tape on top, the pin with a diamond and the plate that says Capture Life Moments the rest were part of my Tim Holt stash that I've been gathering slowly and as well other embellishments that were given to me as a gift. So this was a very challenging Tag because it had allot of detail. This is a very Vintage and Distress look for my tag and I love it.

Anyways I hope you like my June Tag as much as I did :)
