a set a day...#13...

YIKES!!!

the CHA crunch is on...
so this will be a super quickie post today...
I still have mega LOTS to do...

here is set #13...
another large one called...

CELESTIAL ART...



I really like the first saying...
I like what it says...
and it's FUN to use with the ART PARTS trucks...
and I think it can be a card sentiment too...
and good for altered books...

I've been wanting a large star background for a long time...
it's 4 1/2 inches tall...
and 3 inches wide...

I like to stamp an extra star on a grungeboard scrap
& highlight just one star, like this...


"embrace the possibilities" is fun for altered art...
just the word "embrace" can be used with hearts etc...
with mini ART PART hands...
and more...

"become" is another saying that I used with the altered phrenology ART PARTS head I showed yesterday...

I made a funky ART PARTS head collage for tim's idea-ology booth with lots of his fun embellishments...
it is for sure out of THE box...

I'll show you that after CHA...

the large background looks kind of dark on the storage sheet...
but it's exactly what I wanted...

I like to ink it randomly...
to create a worn/ vintage background...

when stamped with my fav coffee archival ink, it looks like this...




so...only one more set to go...

and it's a good one!
I PROMISE!!
it has THE CUTEST matching art part...
it's stinkin cute...

See you tomorrow &
HOPEFULLY, I'll be able to show you
the final ART PARTS packaging...

so far...
it's looking good...

yes...
that's me running to the studio to...

make art!
wendy
ps...
let me just say...
ROCK!!!
WOW... WOW...WOW!

Couldn't you make just one set that I could live without?! lol Love them all and I see lots of new stamp sets and a couple more acrylic binders in my future. Thank you for taking the time for sneak peeks but mostly for all the ideas you share with each one. Hope you get lots done today and get a chance to catch your breath before CHA!
