EXTRA ZETTI

Last night turned into a bit of a production line. Again, it was late, but I had the urge to make and so I damned the consequences and got on while the going was good. I dunno what it is with Milady Muse but she only ever seems to come under the cover of darkness. Not that I'm complaining, I wouldn't dare!
This is an extra Zetti I made for the Artist Trading Card Swap and it will be winging its way today. She is made entirely from scraps including the dots, which used the bits left in my Crop-A-Dile when I punch holes .... nothing goes to waste in this household! (Weird old lady with loads of cats and a garden full of 'scavengings' ... I can see my future!).
Thank you all for my Birthday Wishes - they were lovely and encouraging to receive. I really am having the time of my life!
This new large font is at the request of Numinosity! x

  4. Great Piece, and if you find your meltpot intimidating, I shall try to find you a way to stop that...maybe a video would help?

  6. I love the fact that you waste nothing - and everything that is not tied down finishes up in your beautiful pieces of art. This one is gorgeous!

  8. I see we have much in common :) Late night creating is the BEST!! and waste not is definitely my philosophy as well, which drives my husband a bit crazy as I pull things from the garbage and run out of room for all my bits and pieces. Love your new ATC, she's got great character! Happy new you year!! (I like the larger font)

  10. I think the muse is quite like us, some are morning creatures and some are nocturnal, but whatever she likes, this piece you have created is wonderful and quite steampunkish methinks!

  11. Thanks, I immediately noticed the larger font! Much easier on my eyes. I hope others like it too. (I have an eye appt later on this month)

    Which swap are you involved in? I'm sending one out today as well. It's my first one ever.

    I love the bifocals too!

    I've done lots of darkness creating when I was in Alaska which isn't hard when it gets dark at 3:00 PM. I had to save the daylight for going outdoors for snowshoeing. Now that I'm wintering in Arizona I never seem to get anything done after dark. I'm not sure why!
