Punch Art

I am taking a break in between cleaning to do a little blog update. It's a very pretty German day here feels like spring....could it be?.....really....spring time in Germany?!!! So I'm doing some cleaning with the windows open and fresh air flowing through the house. Here in Germany we do not have any type of venting or air circulation, so if you want fresh air or air to even circulate so you don't that stangnet smell, you have to open your windows...even in the middle of winter....BURRRRRRR! Anyway.....

I joined a swap that was doing punch art. I thought, this should be easy enough. Well, it wasn't as easy as I thought. I just didn't seem to have the right punches for the things I wanted to do....meaning....I need more punches!! LOL! So I finally found some purses, we all know I'm a total girly girl and I did those for one of the layouts and then I decided on the ladybugs and whatever those other things are!!! They were suppose to be ants but after all that wire curling I just didn't feel like doing anything more with the wire so they are like worms with antenas I guess! Either way they are kind of cute!
It was for a 6x6 layout type for a scrapbook page so here are my three pretty purses and one of my favorite sayings. Also some close-ups of the purses.

I used the round punch and the scalloped punch for this one

I used the round punch and I'm not sure what the name of the other one is, it's from SU!

And my cute little clutch is made from the heart punch (the triangle part) and an oval punch from SU!

Here is my adorable little lady bugs and other bugs. I used the scallop punch and the different sized round punches and then used wire for the antennas.

April your amazing, these turned out GREAT!!! Maybe you can draw legs on your ants to make them look like ants. If not they are super cute either way.
