 The last year had some really sad moments, we lost some of our precious furries. In the pictures here you see Nicky. We never knew how old she was when we got her but we were able to give 6 years in our family.
 Nicky had seizures that were becoming more and more severe. The decision that had to be made was awful and very hard. She came to use as a stray, a little tiny kitten. She never got bigger.
Talkative little lady she was.
 We also lost Kahn the Collie and Chico the Chihuahua . Kahn had had a very rough life when we got him at 6 years old from the humane society. It toke 2 years for him to not be scared if someone suddenly stood up. He was afraid of feet. I do not think i have to explain to any of you why that was right?

 We met Chico at the humane society whiles we were looking for a cat. He would not leave my lap lol. He had been adopted out several times we were told but people had brought him back. My husband was (lol) very resistant in taking home such a little yapper hahaha. But home Chico came with us lol, he won and hubby and him became best friends. Chico was same age as Kahn when we got him. Kahn was getting very senile and Chico forgot where he was and got seizures on top of that.
As hard as it is at some point with as many animals as we have ( all rescue) one has to make decisions that are hard . R.I.P my lovelies.
On another note we have still lots of furries left and we are grateful for them, they are such a big part of our lives. Harlow, Whitney, Amber, Buddy (all dogs), Scooter, Hatty, Kismet and Bijoux ( all cats).
Well that is it for today folks. Did not mean to make you sad, just sharing the wonderful furries that have left us last year and crossed the rainbow bridge. We will never forget them they will always be in our hearts. I wish all of you a wonderful day, take care stay safe and hug your furry friends if you have them.

Altered, mixed media canvas with steampunk elements...?!


 

What can i say, this canvas just "happened". It had been laying around for a while being discarded because it was a unsatisfying accomplishment at that point. So i dived into it with nothing to loose and this is the end result. No planning no idea where it would take me. I have to admit it is very relaxing to play this way lol.





Short post sorry, have to get back to clean the house bit. Then its playing time mwuhaahaaa ( <Take care peeps and have a wonderful creative day!
            Huggies,

Continuation of the steampunk inspired album....


Still have not really gotten the hang of getting them in following order. The pictures i mean.
The top one is the backside of the one underneath.

Getting the little vile to stay on the page required some experimenting, but it worked this way. it is a plastic vile. Was not sure bout the safety of handling the album with glass in it.

The heart is made from copper craft sheet with some pieces of metal roofing tape on it,then it was run thru embossing folder.
 The ruler is piece of chipboard stamped and utee'd.

 Yes..its a real silver spoon that was tortured till it was flat.
Hammer and small anvil did the trick lol. I glued the bottom part onto the page then secured it with some die cut grungeboard.  Using Tim Holz die of course lol.


the full page here.
All pages are not totally finished yet. More embellishments will be added when i have decided how many pages i am making. Working on one more atm. Think that will be the last one. then i will go to town with more stuff to add.
I am hoping this post finds you all wel and that everyone has a wonderfull creative day.
If you have any question bout my posts plz shoot me an email i will be happy to answer.
Thanks for visiting :)
             Big hug,

Steampunk album in the making...

Hello peeps, hope this day finds you all well.
Today posting couple pictures of an album i am working on.
Actually its the first 2 pages..lol. It seems i am picky on the lay out of the pages, this is what takes me more time then actually making them. You see them as not fully embellished yet tho. While working on the pages, embellishments that could be bit more bulky or in the way of making the backsides of the pages, i write those down so i dont forget them. When the album is about finished i will add them.
Maybe not the regular way its done, but it works for me :) . Above is the cover( not fully embellished as i want it to be either yet. "sigh" Colors are lot more vibrant then the pictures show here on the blog, sorry.
This is the backside of the cover page for now.

Here is the first real page. It has 2 pieces on it that in a way open up.
This is the page "opened".
The back side of it is not glued down yet, have a couple decisions to make on it still ;)
So back to that then.  Take care everyone and have a wonderful creative day!
                         Hugs,
