LED scribe

I have done my LED scribe (I am using it as a night light ..a gift for my mum). I got the green one. Its turned out rather well.. I used alcohol inks and fusible film and fibres at the back to diffuse the light and also it looks pretty lol.. and i stamped the front and added an embellishment swirl given to me by My friend Ginger!
It was easy and fun to do and the end result is something you can easily justify as giving as a gift .. people will think it cost a fair bit. and they are actually very cheap.. and it took me about an hour to do.
If you want a kit to try one for yourself this is the link . I also have a permanent link in the LEDScribe logo on my blog
For other examples of the assembled LEDScribe kit have a look at these links

As its a free theme on crazy amigos challenge blog I am entering it on there.

Mixed Media Monday RUST

mixed media Monday's guest hostess is Gillian and she has chosen my favorite theme at the moment.. "Rust" .. i was so pleased it was rust that I spent all of Sunday evening making this picture .. its 18 inches by 12 inches approximately. I don't have a ruler here and I am too lazy to check lol.. if you want to ask anything about how it was made just email :-) x

mini friendship Canvas (This thursday)

I made this for Clau in a friendship swap. Its only little and the blank canvas was given to me by Lazykay another forum craft buddie. its about 6 or 7 inches tall I think.. (the canvas! not Lazykay lol)
It is also made from nice happy sunshine colours of sky blue and yellows.. so I am entering it it for this thursday's challenge "colour is my obsession".

Another canvas (this thursday)

close up of one of the bits of mica tile
close up of the rusted metal embellishments
Another canvas .. with ribbons on so that it can be entered for This Thursday its all about...
I added some of the metal embellishments I rusted up when preparing for the mixed media Monday Rust challenge.. I didn't use them on that piece but liked how they turned out. also on this canvas are bits of Mica, Fantasy film fusible fibers.
Its similar in layout to the last one I did for this Thursday but that's because they are now a pair hanging at either side of my window, so I wanted it to tie in somehow!
