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 (trees)

I had the opportunity to play with my new distress inks while doing this weeks Gothic Arch Challenge and oooh they is gawgus!! Didn't buy the tool to use them with so used a makeup sponge to apply them and I love the effect they give. I wanted to have a bit of fun with this one and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The trees and bird are Crafty Individuals stamps, Mona is from Lost coast designs, nests are from Lisa's altered art and Little Mona from Artchix. I even used some of the sticky ribbon I've had in my ribbon box for about How good am I? ;-0

Well I'm lovin' Mona's head dress!!
The background is amazing - I so struggle with blending inks - they always go streaky and you see the sponge marks etc, I need a distressing class!!! LOL
