Dragonfly wand

I had to make a wand for our online art group and I decided to do a dragonfly wand. The main dragonfly was done by me some years ago and it is a cross-stitched and beaded dragonfly. It was originally designed to be a pin but I never worn it much. When I was searching for a project to do for my wand, I came across it and thought that it would make a good project because it didn't get appreciated shut up in my drawer and I've always thought it was so pretty. The dragonflys on the back and on the tag are srinky dinks. I had a small dragonfly stamp and a friend let me use her larger dragonfly stamp.I found the poem and thought it would go well wish the wishes theme.

Ice blue - Think Monday - Think ATC

This is my ATC for think Monday - Think ATC. The theme today is "ice blue".
The image is from The Ephemera Book CD. I added blue ink to the image. The snowflakes are embossed with with detail embossing powder.
The word, "snow" is stamped with blue ink and then has several layers of ultra thick embossing powder embossed on it. This was my first time working with this powder.
The half round glass marble has snow patterned paper under it.

Queens - Think Monday - Think ATC

Today's theme at Think Monday - Think ATC was Queens and Kings.
I had done the Birthday Queen a while back and I made the Dream Queen for today. These are magazine pictures that are glued onto the cards with gel and then I draw over them and paint over them with water colors. Then I seal them with gel. They are such fun to do! The Dream Queen's crown is from Tim Holtz's Distressable elements CD.

Motoring South - Think Monday - Think ATC

This is my ATC for this weeks challenge on Think Monday - Think ATC. The challenge was to
use automobiles as a theme. This included everything with an engine used to get from A to B, i.e. also motorcycles, trucks or busses that could be used as a subject.
So my subject is a Vintage Indian motocycle. I used a map of the Atlanta area and an old stamp that shows a diner that looks like it could be from the same era as the motorcycle.

Snow tag

A friend and I attended a class at our favorite local store and we did a Tim Holtz inspired tag. I had a blast at the class and I love the way the tag turned out.

cowboy - Think Monday - Think ATC

The challenge over on Think Monday - Think ATC was a challenge to play cowboys and indians. I had this little guy in my files. I think it may have come from someone in my art group.
Thank you if you were the one who shared it with me. I promise to try and keep sources better in the future.
