Ok I finally think I am happy with it.

I'm a bit picky.

Here is my ATC for Jenny.. I lovvvvvvvvvved using my 3RD EYE STAMPS!!!
I used the Skull (TES-010) and the Kardiogram (TES-006).

I did glue microbeads onto the skull and I used a chalk like atc and chalk ink .. so it was black and then I used a pink chalk ink for the skull.. and then I used metallic distress stains and crackle paints and found some spiders that are trying to break out.. It came out kind of cool.

I am mailing this to Jenny tomorrow. Hope she likes it. I took lots of pics and tried my hand at editing once again.

Sorry it took so long Jenny.
Happy Scrappn!

The gears part 2

Earlier I posted my beginnings on making gears. Here is an update. This is how they turned out. Front and back. I did trim on them and if I do this in the future I'm using Dixie cups and eye droppers to control the liquid. Thanks for looking.

Happy Scrappn!

Ok another step if breaking out! Making sure I end this year full of trying new things! Cooking is an area I wanted to expand. Here is my latest tool! I bought some roast carrots and potatoes! Let the experiments begin!!!
