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.

Manic... Manic... Manic...

few days I've had ... with my Grandson, Sister and two nieces staying with me.  Don't know where the time goes but my poor blog has  So all by myself once again which gives me the chance to do some crafting and catch up with you all.
One of my favourite actresses of all time is Audrey Hepburn... she is so elegant and thanks to a gorgeous image from Narry at Etsy she now has pride of place on an easel in my room :D

I added more colour to the already beautiful image with distress inks and put on some half pearls cos I love things to be touchy feely.

I also gave her a butterfly in her hair and decoupaged the bird with it's crown cos I also love 3d bits and pieces... like you don't know that right :D

I was a very lucky girl to win Patty's fabulous giveaway from her guest spot on the Artist trading club blog and oh what a delightful array of goodies she sent me (see below).  Thank you sooooo much Patty xx

I also received this gorgeous brooch as a RAK from Rosie... isn't it just so lovely.  Thank you Rosie... you made my day xx

Blogging buddies are just THE BEST!!
