Well I finally finished the entire package for my lovely niece. I made a card for her as well of course! It is a fun card which of course has the same colours as the fairy and art piece I created for her. I was a little late in sending the package but it got there only one day late. I sent the package via Express post and it took two days to get there.
|'The Birthday card''|
This is a side view of the card to show the depth and dimension of the card. I popped the dress form up with my wonderful Helmar zap dots. They stick like nothing else!!! Love 'em!!

Oh my!!! Now this is worth every single minute of work.....and there were many many hours put into this art piece. She is so precious to me. I hope she knows this! I don't get to visit as much as I'd like to due to our respective home locations.....there are about 3500kms between us.....Ontario to Calgary it's a long long walk...........I hope that she keeps this forever and can pass it along to her wee ones....she did state to me on the phone as she thanked me for the gift that she was going to keep some of her dolls and toys for her children and give some away to other children. So generous and thinking of others already. As I stated a little angel and a very special niece!! My hubby and I love her.....as of course does the rest of the family. She is my parents first grandchild. My first niece and just a spitfire! I love you so much!!!
Now on to an ATC JAM that I have set up and started to send on for two others to work on!
|Watercolor oil pastel ATC Jam starter!|
I sent this set to an ATC Jam trader in Finland. I wanted to send a set that was NOT a bit of pattern paper! I started by adding a wax resist crayon using a stencil. I then put some glitter spray from Tsukeniko on and finished by using my new Staedtler watercolor oil pastels. Oh wow oil...water...yeah it works well the pigment is fun and great to work with....not the best pigmented pastels but fun to play with. Love that resist technique!!
Well that's it for this post!! I will be posting after this......I made an ATTEMPT at an art journal page..... yes an attempt!
