Well it's all go here today! I've just done Sian's AJ page - she wanted us to choose a word from her list and illustrate it (I think). I chose "Crazy" but took a somewhat light hearted view after finding an old Disney magazine article with the pink elephants from Dumbo. You'll see what I mean! I hope you like it Sian.
Mojo abounds in the snow. So I wrestled it upstairs and did my January AJCJ page for Lexi. I saw the quote this morning and it's really moved me and got me thinking.
I used.....Mister Huey gold spray, a couple of distress stains, an Inkadinkadoo stamp that I'd doubled up on and shared on SSers, and frankly had put aside thinking that I'd never use, but ooooh! I like it in the flesh so to speak. The other stamp is a Studio Calico one that I use ALL THE TIME because it's so fab. This is a bit 'lighter' than the stuff I've been doing lately and I was really quite pleased. Thoughts? Comments? Complaints (the complaints department is out to lunch at the moment, please try later)

This is my AJCJ for Chris. I've not done any 'she art' before and it's not exactly the same as Christy Tomlinson's stuff, but hey, I actually really enjoyed doing it and may well find myself doing some more. The background is a mixture of Dylusions spray ink and inktense pencils (both of which are pretty new to me but I'm liking a lot) which I then stamped with an umbeliifer stamp that lurks in the dark recesses of the broom cupboard. I 'dotted' the seed heads with a white sakura pen and I really like that effect. I distress stamped the stitching around the top corner and found a nice grid stamp that I used for the hell of. My lady is my own drawing, coloured with ProMarkers and the dress is made of two bits of paper - a book page which I stamped with the ladybird and and piece of raspberry plainish paper for the bodice. Her name is Michelle and she's quite a one. Oh, the words say 'she flies with her own wings' which is a saying I found on a site (which I will reference when I can find it....) but I really liked it - sums up how I feel at the moment which is a good thing I guess :)
I was initially a bit not freaked, but concerned that I hadn't explored this area of art before, but I'm pretty pleased with the end result. What do you think?

Whilst I'm on here I'll post the gorgeous page that Leanie made for meee :) Here it is:
I took the piccy in front of my laptop but the light from behind actually goes really well with the theme :D I love that you used my love of astronomy in your choice of words Leanie - big hugs xxx
Here's my page for Tigs aka Helen. I spent ages looking through my quote book and on the net and I just couldn't decide then I was looking through my Timmy stamps and realised I had a quote stamp that I love and have never used but rather than just stamp it and be done I've done something slightly different. Hope you like it Helen :)
I used Dylusions sprays and border stamps. The little girl is from my favey TH stamp set Winged Things 1 and I used the retro circles from the TH set Bitty Grunge - the actual quote is from Urban Tapestry but I hand wrote most of it on some dylusioned card in contrasting colours to the background and I stamped the words that are highlighted on the actual stamp, cut them out and added them. It took me quite a while lol and I hope the fact that the little girl's leg dangle off the end isn't a problem - otherwise ye shall have to chop them off arrrr (pirate impression) - Sian :)
