are a favourite of mine. My Chinese zodiac sign is a Fire Dragon, so the theme at TMTA this week to create art using dragons appealed greatly. I have used a range of shades of red to create my ATC, putting down a base coat of distress inks and then using clear embossing powder on the top to stamp my dragon image in. I then stamped some lettering over the top of this, and to finish added some darker red shades to make the embossed image stand out and added some gems.

is the theme over at CBH this week. So in the feel of the theme I have created an ATC using some Native American Indian stamps, stamping in stazon ink and using a masking technique to layer two different stamp images together. I then added colour using Copic markers and finished the edges with Memento ink. Having looked at other sites this also fits the TMTA theme of Red / Yellow this week too. I love the rich warm colours and how Native American Indians made the most of these vibrant colours.

It was so good to get a lie in this morning and a chance to have a play around with Photoshop. ACF this week have a background to be used to create a piece of art. I chose to use a photograph I took of myself recently with leopard print facepaint and combined it with the background using layering techniques and digital brushes.
I have also had a chance to photograph some of my scrapbooking and altered art pieces which I have created over the year and just not had the time to share, so hopefully I will get a few of these uploaded this weekend. I hope you all have a relaxing time.
