My Creative endevours have moved

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.

Artygirlz challenge #59 and Big Art Adventure challenge catch up.

I began this project for last weeks Big Art Adventure challenge to make a 3d house but didn't manage to complete it on time with Dad being in hospital and everything but the Artygirlz challenge this week gave me an extra push to complete it :D This weeks Artygirls challenge is to include a hand drawn element in your project ... so I combined the two challenges (hope you girls don't mind) to come up with my little fairy house :D

This side of my house has lots of my favourite things... bling, flowers, pink paper and chipboard :D
The papers I used are all from Willow Designs Occasions Cd ....

and these are two of my favourite stamps... the 'for you fairy' and cute little doggy friend (sorry I forgot his also from Willow designs :D Aren't they just scrummy!! The other side fits in with the Artygirlz hand drawn element :D I decorated it with more papers from the same Occasions CD but I drew some curtains, window boxes and a door on the pink dotty paper before cutting them out and sticking them on and then sketching in the windows and flowers... loads of fun ;-)

I am just so happy with every little corner of my little house and I even added some bling fairy lights... imagination overload happenin' right

Had to eat lots of chocolate last night while I was finishing my little project as I got together with my pal Chriss for a crafty get together... surprising how company and chocolate seem to give my crafting a push in the right direction.... 'specially if the air is sprinkled with a fair amount of laughter. Not quite so happy today when I look at my 'Nanna' arms... you know the type... underneath hangs like bat wings and the rest looks like curdled custard...rofl... BUT can't blame anyone but myself, lack of exercise and a bad diet will do it every time!! A long way from looking like a pretty little fairy... those days are well gone... but I guess soon I will manage to take the part of Grandma in Little red riding hood... eeeeeerm... oooooh what big teeth you have Grandma... all the better to EAT you with my dear.... ha ha ha

have a great evening :)
