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.

Gothic arch challenge... Turqoise

This is my entry for this weeks Gothic arch challenge which was Turquoise... didn't think it was going to work for me because after spending almost all day with my friend Chriss... with the intentions of doing some full on crafting yesterday... we spent more time chatting and eating chocolate than actually getting anything creative done. Our mojo just didn't seem to be working but in the middle of the night, not being able to sleep I got back up to find my mojo in full swing again.... so not only did I complete my arch... I also started on 5 other projects too...lol I tend to swing from one thing to another without completing any of them and then somehow they all seem to come together at once. Anyone else do that or am I just peculiar (or unique...whichever way you look at it..lol)
For this arch I stamped the background paper with a music stamp from Crafty Individuals and added images from Cen's Loft freebie decades papers. A bit of fun with this one for a change... seriousness isn't in my vocabulary just now. Wonder why it is that some days the slightest thing tickles your fancy and has you gut wrenchingly laughing to the point of hysteria...lol Probably has something to do with going to see all the pics of the girls who went over and Yearbooked themselves ( see the link on my yearbook photos below if you want to do it yourself) I have had soooooooooo much fun and laughter looking at what everyone else looked like in their different guises that if you are up for a bit of fun you just HAVE to do your own!!
Okay that's all from me today... off to spend the night at DD's looking after my gorgeous DG so more fun for me later on with him :)
I won't have time to blog hop till I come back so thanks for popping by...will catch up with you all later :)
hugs
Chris xx

Chocolate, friends and artwork all go hand in hand without a doubt. Don't we all have a chocolate stash in our art areas? Love the movement and joy in this turquoise arch. It just makes me want to get up and dance!

This is GREAT! I sometimes start more than one project at once, but not too often. I probably would if I had somewhere to put a work in progress. As it is, I barely have room to work . . . my area is too overcrowded, and it's always messy! Oh well! Great project Chris!

Your mojo does work wonders.
