Saturdays Workout - Bandana Technique

Another great technique is displayed as Sandy's wonderful example on the above link.

Here is my 1st attempt at this technique but I certainly will have another go as it's such fun to try. I can't wait to view the other entries - always inspiring! I think it would have worked better with some extra yellow but didn't have any!

Dans ma maison il y a un arbre

This is an appropriate theme for me today as I am off to visit a local arboretum , hoping to take lots of great autunmal photos with my new digital SLR camera. The problem is that it's pouring with rain so I might just have to settle for creating more tree artwork instead!

Anyway I enjoyed putting my tree house together.

Haute Couture or just bizarre?

This is my entry for this weeks challenge on gothic arches. The theme is Haute couture. I did change the label to correct my little spelling error but haven't got time to rescan!
I hope you like it anyway

Have a great week everyone!

Tongue Twister

Bet you can't do this! People often comment about my dogs long tongue but I didn't realise quite how long it is until I took this photo and saw it spiralled right around! ( Click on the image for full size & you will see what I mean!!)

Gothic Arches Challenge - Turquoise

This is my turquoise entry for todays Gothic Arch Challenge.
I have used wax, clear embossing powder and the speckeldy effect is a splash of adirondack, over the embossing glaze which was dryed quickly with a heat gun.

Hope you all have a fun week!

Gothic Arches - Tribute Arch

My freestyle arch is a tribute to Paul Newman who sadly died this week. Although he was twice my age at his time of death I remember having a picture of him in my purse (along with that of Tony Curtis) when I was young. He defined the meaning of handsome.
I chose a blue background as his eyes were such a piercing blue.
One of the things that I most admired was his loyalty to his wife, quite rare in Hollywood. Apparently when questioned about this he said " Why have hamburger when you have steak at home".

Dans Ma Maison Challenge - Vintage

The photo from yesterdays newspaper feat. Grace Kelly was published just in time to incorporate into my vintage collage. Her classic beauty is timeless and she would still be considered gorgeous today!

The background uses distress inks, a vintage themed rubber stamp and the tulips are courtesy of Xyron Design Runner!
