Back from the wilderness

Hia all, I am back from the wilderness, I have been in the wilds of my own brain for a while. When she was up she was up and when she was down she was deep deep down! Anyway nuff said! Here are what have pulled me out of my cavern! This halloween treat is late but will be on the way to Cathy soon.
This ATC is for Marga and was part of the motif lottery on Textile challenges. It is a background of wrapping paper fabric paper and gold lurex. Marga's motif was a moon, so I went for a festive feel.

This arch is for Hannah and was made by laying down lace and then painting with emulsion and then acrylic and highlighted with bronze acrylic. I love it!!!!!

I am behind with my calendar girls postcard but getting there slowly This needs to be made into a postcard but will be my offering. I used Carol Mcfee's technique of using wallpaper and moulding paste. I then painted over with acrylic and highlighted again with bronze.

I messed with this one on PS elements I love the contrast and would love to play with this more when I get 5!!!!

Hope you are all well and would love to hear from you, my self imposed exile is over come on let me have it, how are things in your world???????

Welcome back to the creative side Carol--it's not nice to feel down but it's great when the rise starts again.
I love your last piece-- if this is a sign of your work in the future then everyone will have to look out.
