A Motley Crew

I decided to add to these cards according to their names... I'm not sure if I like them better or not but I guess that's the whole point of playing around with things.

I decided to make a few more friends to go along with my first two...

These are all made using Keron Lee's wonderful rock photos.

The Errant Knight

I thought these lizards were so cute that I just had to make another one using more of Keron's wonderful photos!

I call this guy The Errant Knight because he is off wandering on his own personal crusade.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

My friend and fellow Paper Trader, Keron Lee, sent me some photographs she took of stones along the River Hutt on her recent trip to New Zealand. I am playing around with some ideas for my upcoming Sticks & Stones swap. Here are a couple of playful attempts:

I call this first one "King of the Mountain" (for obvious reasons =)

This is the chinese symbol for "strength" which was the only word that was simple enough for me to draw and was somehow related to stone... hahahahaha!

Pretty in Pink

This was another experiment in backgrounds. I followed Connie's instructions for decoupaging little torn bits of paper and then "sealing" them under a layer of tissue paper. I followed this up with a thin coat of pearlescent acrylic and a light spritz of Moon Glow's Starburst Stain.
