I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL
And I have 4 great kids and 4 grandchildren that I love to pieces. Hope you enjoy my ramblings and my creations...and remember
"STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"
He's called Wheely pig....and its was designed by Mary Vogel Lozinak.
She has designed a lot of stamps for VLVS...so be sure to check out her
other designs while you're there.
A little bit about how I created this cutieeee..
I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with
color pencils and blended with OMS and a paper stump.
The saying was computer generated. I used a new pennant punch from Creative Memories to create the border at the top.
An 'art deco' embossing folder was used on the orange-y layer.
Bakers twine was used for the tightrope.
I tried to create a "Circus Big Top" feel.
Here's a close up of the glitter gel pen I used for the wheel.

Until later, piglets.......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
I stamped it using Black Stazon onto white cardstock. Then colored with Bic Markers.
I used some crackle finish on the entire surface and let it dry, then I rubbed it with a sponge with ink to emphasize the cracks. Modge podged the crackled image to a wooden disk. Wrapped the edges with leather cording and left the ends rather long to create the necklace part. Added a wooden wheel and bead; tied off the ends. Adhered a faux flower like kinda reminded me of a gear.
Tied the ends together and now its ready to wear!!!
Until later, holy rollers.......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
