Atlanta & optical art...

let me start this post by thanking you all for the sweet comments about my new art adventure...
I sincerely appreciate each & every one of YOU...

I thought I'd share this photo & the note that came with it...

Hey Wendy...
Since you are a frequent PEEKER on your blog, I'd like to PEEK you a photo from January market in Atlanta. Please jeep in mind that there are 3 buildings, each with 20 floors that are packed with incredible finds. Attached you will find a little PEEK for you.
Hope we cross paths in Atlanta.

OMG...poor Rick has NO CLUE how much trouble I can get into here...
I'll have to duck tape the American Express somewhere safe to keep it out of my reach...

take a gander @ this beautiful sight...


phew... my hands get sweaty looking @ this photo...

today's stamp giveaway is...
optical art...

I adore this background...
and there are some fun sayings on it too...


the background is a good one for embossing...

here I used it on my new bird art part...

and stamped on the new art part bottle like this...

after I inked the bottle with rusty hinge distress stain, I stamped the background over the bottle with vermillion archival...dried it,
then painted rock candy crackle paint over it...

I LOVE this effect...

and a very small detail again...
Ranger's Memory Foil Tape seals the bottle...

new fun charms & labels from tim too...


yes...I have used this background LOTS...

here it is on the new art parts lamp...
tim's chain tassel makes the cutest lamp pull...



the winner of yesterday's stamp set is...

I am so glad you show us things you create - I wasn't so sure about that background stamp, if I "needed" (lol) it - now I see I do!

You are SO going to love the show in Atlanta! I've always wanted to go, too - so will be living vicariously through you.

That background stamp is a must have! Hope they become available soon. It would be fun to be around all of those items in that picture! Not sure if there is still a gift show in Chicago anymore. I used to work as temporary help in a rep booth about 18 years ago!
