Peggy's theme this month for our 8x8 tip-in swap is Famous Movie Couples. I originally was going to do Lucy & Desi but someone did that already sooooo.....I chose Cheech Marin & Tommy Chong! I just love these two guys and their movies and comedy crack me up. I did a little different background technique...tissue paper, soft-gloss gel medium, pearl-ex powders, stickles and rubber stamped images. Really soft hand and beautiful in person. Hope Peggy likes them!

As many of you know, each month a group of us swap gothic arches and 8x8's for a year-long tip-in project. This month I was to create an 8x8 page spread for my friend Gina using her theme of Bible stories.

At Paper Whimsy we are creating Vintage Ornaments for the holidays. We signed up in groups of 7 and will mail out one ornament to each of the other 6 participants in the group. My group's colors are pink & gold and these are the ornaments I made using my chosen template. Each person will be using a different template so that in the end, we will have a wonderful assortment of pink & gold ornaments to hang together in a beautiful holiday banner! Paper Whimsy has absolutely wonderful images, talented artists and super-duper swaps. Hugs to my Whimsy Friends!

I don't know why I ever start out with an "idea" in my head for a project cuz my muse just takes over and does it her way! SHE didn't want to create what I had envisioned so I went along with her...I never argue with my muse. :o)

If you are under 18 or if nudes offend you, please look the other way but I do hope you will enjoy the copper row houses I made for Lenna Andrews' current swap. I LOVED working with the copper! I used copper mesh, copper sheets and copper tape. I embossed, distressed, painted and texturized it....and next time, I am going to try heating it! After I had the houses cut out, I used the new DigiSheets from Paper Whimsy for the backgrounds. Then I began auditioning images and the Playful Nudes transparencies just seemed "right". I love how they look over the swirling fruity backgrounds and in hind-sight...it creates a bit of voyeuristic art....which I love! Hope you do too. Namaste, Carol
