Not Paper Crafting but....... I think it's still ART!!!

Hello everyone!!!! It's not been such a great week. Both my babies are in the middle of being sick or getting over being sick, and I think I have strep throat, uuuuuuuuggggghhhhh! Anyways I thought I would share with you all another passion of mine. I know it's not paper crafting but never the less I still think it's art. Everything you see was made by hand by me, including the carving to get a 3d cake (like Lightning McQueen). Everything on or around these cakes are edible. The first four pictures are of the cake I just did this past weekend. Like I said before I know it's not paper art but I still consider this an art form. I've been think that in the future I might take a class or to to improve my abilities, but have ultimately decided to pre sue an degree in Graphic Design. Someday I hope that I will be able to design my own line of patterned papers. Hope you all enjoy the pictures!!!!

Another Recipe Box!

This recipe box is also for a swap I'm in on 2peas. My partner wanted me to make her son a recipe box because he loves the recipe card swaps that we do and he wants to be a chef when he grows up. The paper line that his mom chose was "Live Loud" by Imaginisce because he's such a huge music lover. I must admit I was stumped for awhile on how I was going to incorporate this paper line, music, cooking, and food. So this is what I came up with. The actual recipe box is made from vinyl 45 records, and 4 out of the 12 dividers are made from the small vinyl records. The rest of the dividers are chipboard based.    

I also signed up for 7 spots in a recipe card swap on 2peas. Each spot you have to create 16 of the same recipe card! 48 down and 64 to go, well actually 24 to go. I have most of the other ones done. I just haven't taken pictures yet! Each recipe card comes out of their pockets! The Recipe card with the coke bottle I think is my favorite. You can't tell in the picture but you can see through the Coke bottle and you can sort of see through the brown "Coke". I tried to photograph it so you could see what I'm talking about but it just wasn't coming out right.

Sorry everyone that I've been MIA! I've been busy on getting my swaps done, and................ ordering a ton of stuff for the giveaway. I'll post a list of all the stuff that I have now and that is on it's way to me as we speak. Before that however, I would like to share with you all the finished Steampunk charms for the "Anything with Wings" Charm Swap on 2peas. I wanted to make all the charms identical, but that was impossible since all the hearts were hand molded, so I decided to make them all completely different but in the same style. For these I used polymer clay (Fimo), tiny watch gears, cogs, and other tiny watch parts, copper and brass wire, antique brass wing charms, and mica powder for coloring.

Hello everyone!!! Hope you all had an awesome weekend! Sorry, sorry I have no pictures for you today, but maybe tonight or tomorrow! I've been working on a new recipe box for a swap on 2peas. He wants to be a chef when he grows up and loves the 6x6 recipe cards. Almost done with that and will post pics soon. I also have dug into all my Sassafras papers! That's the one paper line I tend to hoard because I usually can't bring myself to cut it. I'm making a file folder mini album, and loving the way it's turning out.

I've got the blog giveaway "stuff" sitting in a box, and more stuff on the way!!!! The G45 "Oz" line is secured and will be shipped to me when it is released!!! The lucky winner will receive the complete line (12x12, 8x8 paper pads, 3 stamp sets, 2 chipboard embellishment sets, and 12 12x12 coordinating Bazzill cardstock), plus all the other stuff!!!! So if you haven't told all your artsy/scrappy friends, please do so. I can't wait to do the drawing to find out who the lucky winner is!
