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 altered candle

I've been going to try transfering an image stamped on tissue onto a candle for ages but never seemed to get around to it.... but when I got my favourite Mona Lisa stamp out the other day ...I just knew where she was going to end up :D

I gave her a crown which was a pressy from my pal Chriss and used Heidi Grace plastic embellishments to decorate the candle along with some half pearls.

I also put some sticky ribbon around the candle to tie in with the colour scheme and add some more decoration.

I've been at my friends'  for a couple of days and was over the moon to come home to this fabby prize that I won from The Artistic Stamper with Hels challenge at Sunday Stamper...whooohoooo thanks Hels it's amazing :D

I also won this cosy hot water bottle and cover which came with this shopper bag from the gorgeous Terrie's blog a while ago and forgot  to share it with you.... Thanks Terrie.... big HUGS xx

It has been my lucky time cos I also won a gift from Patty which I will share with you when it arrives :D

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.
Chris xx
