See what I've been working on?

I know my blog is lacking in art posts lately so I figured I better share with you what I have been doing. I'm working on a website, it is far from done but I have the main format set up for now and the header image done, well at least until I feel the need to redo it. Once I get this done I can advertise locally, print up some flyers and kick this into high gear.

So what do you think? I would love some input as its been awhile since I've worked on a website or done any design work, I'm a tad bit rusty.

I promise to post some art soon : )

Saucy's Wedding Party

After visiting a friend's blog - 3rd Eye Muse - I learned of this fun wedding party at saucy's. And seeing as I just celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary on the 25th I figured it would be fun to post some pics for the party.

DH and I had a small wedding of about 50, we were married on Siesta Key at the Summerhouse. Our metaphysical guru as some liked to call him, performed the ceremony and wrote our vows which were called Angel Affirmations. AB wasn't legal to do the ceremony so we paid for him to become ordained on the internet. We even named our first born after him, which was a cat of course!

So here are some scanned prints, sorry no digitals so they are not the best quality. Guess I should add that to my list of things to do. Can they take negs and make them digital? I would hate to have to scan in hundreds of photos and then "fix" them on top of it. Anyway here they are unedited from 13 years ago - enjoy.

Oh and the top photo on this post was taken at Busch Gardens the day after the wedding. We spent our wedding night on Siesta Key then headed to Tampa for a few days. We both needed to get back to work. We took our real honeymoon in July where we spent 10 days camping in the Keys, it was beautiful.

Technique Tuesday: Fun Foam ATC

I recently wrote a new Technique Tuesday for Altered_stArt, I really enjoy doing these for the group. This one uses Fun Foam which is easily available, you can even get it at most dollar stores now so you can save yourself a trip to the craft store. That's where I got these great fun foam letters that were already sticky so no glue was needed. You can cut your own shapes from the sheets of fun foam as well.

My original tutorial is posted to the group as a PDF file so I decided to do a photo sideshow for my blog which is posted below. If you click on a picture it will take you to the album where you can see the comments on how I did this technique. Enjoy!

Stamped Image Swap

Last month I hosted a stamped image swap on Altered_stArt and look at all these goodies I have to play with now.

Everyone stamped 10 sets of 4 different images so everyone got 4 from each player. Then some even stamped extras so I've got over 40 images to work with - yay!
