July Challenge at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and It is ATC's!

July already and in south Mississippi it has been soooo hot and muggy for soooo long now I am ready for some cool weather!  But alas that will not come for months so not being able to visit my beloved beach and snorkel with my son this entire summer due to mom's illness is making it a very long summer!  The one good thing about it being July is our new challenge at the  Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and the theme is "ATC's" a good an easy one to play along with us!

I wanted a themed set and the lovely faces of women and images of women that Lost Coast Designs has is staggering so lots to choose from.  And you know me, I love to show the versatility of rubber stamps so I did some editing to two of my stamped images.  That is the beauty part of rubber stamps; you can use just what you want, even stamp it and then copy it smaller or larger, even roll up unmounted ones to stamp portions right on to mixed media work.  I used Franco Face (the eyes), Mucha on Pillows (sans some pillows and a part of her legs), and Butterfly Face Girl.  I was inspired by a video and blog on how to make these at Artful Flight .  I needed some chippies but had none so cardboard from packaging to the rescue and a circle punch :)  Use what you have.  My gold flakes photographed quiet bright like little light bulbs and you know my photography skills so.....

Homemade enamel dots, white glitter, all substituted for some awesome products used in the video but I really like how these turned out.
We hope to see your entry this month at the Portal for our challenge; just look to the left and click on the challenge box and it will take you right to us!  And keep an eye on the Portal as this summer we have a lot going on with events and chances to win shopping sprees at the stores!  Always fun to get free shopping so start a wishlist at both stores and play, play, play so you can start checking that wishlist off :)
