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.

Mona Lisa altered photo frame.

You could be forgiven for getting fed up with seeing Mona Lisa on my blog buuuuut I just can't help it... there is just something about her face that draws me in and I love to create around it :D I always seem to use her on things that I have no intentions of giving away cos I can't bare to part with anything I make with her image on... freaky or
This time I altered a frame with papers from Crafty Individuals which are sooo pretty. I just love the delicate colours.
I gave Mona her own headdress too... found it in my bead box... from my days of messing with wire and pearl beads in the hope that I would come up with something worth looking at or wearing. This was a project that didn't quite happen for me but I think it's arty enough for Mona and she wears it well :D

I recently received this fabby award from Dawn and just this once I really can't just choose a few people to pass it on to because I greatly appreciate every single comment that any of you leave for me... they really make my day and I so love knowing that you like what you see when you visit my blog.
So please if you have EVER left a comment on ANY of my posts pick up this award and display it proudly on your blog with a HUGE THANK YOU from me xxxxx

See you soon
Chris xx
