Catching up?

Recenty, Patricia and I were having an email conversation and she suggested that I post some art work that I never posted, as a catch up.  Unfortunately, the light's gone for tonight, so I can't get good photos.  Maybe I can get to that tomorrow : .) After I go to spin class and see Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows

: .)

I managed to do these two pieces today and last weekend.  I find it so funny that I get stuck on a color scheme.  (I've also done  a few Frantic Stamper design team projects, but I'm hanging onto those until I submit them and they are posted on the FS blog.)

Last week while I was out jogging, I was listening to Eddie (& Pearl Jam) and was inspired to make  this piece:

I was also inspired by this great picture from Disney by Mark's blog post about Tim Burton, the Un-Disney Legend...

 I love Tim Burton.  I love Disney.  (Don't get me started on the park ticket price increase however...)
& I made this:

Isn't that black masking tape awesome?!

I thinking about doing a shadow box with the wire/tape ears, but I think I need a different wire gage.

Its Frantic Stamper sketch time! 
 I took a cue from my most recent STM layout, as well as the sketch and made this!!!

From the Frantic Stamper shop,
I used my new Dylusions Spray Inks  in London Blue & Vibrant Turquoise
Frantic's French Newspaper Background stamp.
Also, some Basic Grey Urban Prairie cardstock and
 I think the star brads are from Impress Rubber Stamps.

Scrapping the Music - Sparkle

Another challenge is up at Scrapping the Music!  This time around we are doing Sparkle by RubyHorse.

Another song I had not had the chance to get to know.  I think I am lacking in my musical education. Nevermind that most of the music on my iPod is probably 4-5 years old!!!  heh.  Ok, recently I did download Gotye's Somebody That I Used to Know. (At first I thot it was Goat-Yees, but its actually Gauthier. Pronounce THAT!)   I'm so hip.  yeah.

Don't forget that the new format at Scrapping the Music has two parts, the music challenge and a prompt.

The prompt for this challenge is "Your favorite singer when you were a teenager",  or currently if your Dad still calls you a teenager.   Oh wait, that's probably just me!  : .P

OK, I couldn't help but go with, the what do they call it??? the gratuitous picture of the day (GPOTD).
I took it while I was practicing TTV shots during my class in SF last year.  To see if its possible to take a self-portrait TTV.  It IS!!!  I love this picture of me, not only because its so dorky, but because I think I'm so funny and I think its quite representative.  I'm quite modest too, right?!  (SO laughing at myself RIGHT NOW!) AND I SPARKLE!  hee!  But I am NOT a vampire.    And while I'm thinking of it, why did they only show Edward as sparkly in Twilight and not the other Cullens?  Sorry, I digress yet again.

You might recognize the papers and the alphas, they're from the DCWV - Colorful Life set that I used for this...I needed glittery stuffs.  Unfortunately, all of that is lost in the photography.  I'll have to check with my photography expert (Patricia!) to see if that can be rectified...

Oh please do stop by and play along!!!
