A Halloween Special - "Reap and Ye Shall Sow"
An ATC for Alicia Caudle

Oh lordy but it's been a busy week. I came to the end of it wanting to just sleep instead of do art
We super women of the 21st century...running a household, managing a full-time job, making sure the family are fed, clothed, sheltered, loved and happy...it sometimes feels like mission impossible..and yet somehow, I managed to slip into my studio this week! Not so this weekend, however (spring cleaning called)! Indeed, I actually feel like I need another art holiday...so if there's anyone out there who wants to sponsor me on a trip to Paris for a couple of weeks, I'd be most appreciative:

Well, some important things have been happening on my art radar this week. The first is my piece to Seth as part of the Art Exchange all of us are (probably) participating in by now. If you are NOT participating in this fantastic exchange but would like to, let me know and I'll be sure to pass on your name to those who still have artist friends to find:

This is the sister collage to the ATC I did for Alicia (the first picture posted above). Lyle from Just a Note (hi Lyle!) sent me these gorgeous little tarot pictures in the post and I just had a ball incorporating them into my mixed media work. Seth's picture, above, really plays on the theme of the wheel of fortune. What goes up, must come down and vice a versa. So the cogs of life do turn...
Another little (well, not so little) project of mine is Lisa Sarsfield's Pulp Redux altered book round robin. Here's a few pictures of what I've been up to:
This is my portfolio (the cover of my altered book).
The portfolio actually folds up to protect and contain the actual book itself. Here's the front of the portfolio:
Although...I'm not entirely happy with the front of the portfolio, so any suggestions on how I could pimp it up would be greatly appreciated.
The book itself is now being altered. I have a story that goes with my first couple of pages. To read this story - it's about the infamous Maude Newton (my main character) - click here and scroll down till you get to the bit about Maude. You'll know your there because there's a photo of her next to her late husband.
Also on my radar at the moment is a neat little mail art project run by Gandha Key. It's called "Cafes of the World." If you want to participate, or just view some of the amazing art that's coming through to him, click here to find out more: http://www.zyarts.com/cafesaroundtheworld/Here's his advert by the way:
Ohhh and I almost forgot. I'm having a break this week on my blogger spotlight post. Next week it's all about JafaBrit. Stay tuned for then!
