MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Fairy fridge magnet

Still in my altering phase and trying to create new things I decided to make myself a fridge magnet. Something pretty to look at with a sentiment to remind me when I am being forgetful (which is that I should try to be more patient with myself. Don't know how many times I've gone to put a pan in the fridge or put the milk in a cupboard!! Concentration is the key... only more oft than not my head is in the clouds with thoughts of what I want to create next or full of the necessary little details of doing the shopping list and paying the bills uuuurgh ;-)
The main image and those gorgeous wings and crown came from Scrapz and though they are only small they definately add a bit of glamour don't you think.
I love butterflies so just had to add one, more German scrap... I love using this and it is so cheap that I can afford to use it lots...whooohooo

The base is made from folded ribbon (oooh aren't I getting good... think my addiction to hoarding it is placed on top of folded strips of vellum, another of my must have products in my craft box but underused lately. The words are cut from a sentiment strip also available from Scrapz... just finishing my little magnet off nicely....

and here is the completed thing... not a great photo as I managed to miss the bottom but you get the idea.
Hope you are having a fab day :)
Catch ya later
