Anyway, the lovely lady in question has passed on a blog award to me - so thank you Dyan
The idea is that I pass it on
Then I have to list 10 things that make me happy
- My little boy (little almost 10 now!)
- My hubby who makes me smile every day
- My amazing family
- Snow at the weekend when I don't have to worry about going to work
- My art journaling - an absolute passion
- Going to the theatre - love the atmosphere of live productions
- An empty ironing basket
- Curling up on the sofa late at night
- Sookie Stackhouse novels - pure escapism
- The sounds of the sea on a crisp bright morning.
I've really struggled with this double page over the last couple of weeks, because my style has changed again and this was started before this transitional period but I left it alone and came back to it and now I absolutely love it! I extended the brick work on the picture which was good fun, although my pointing of the bricks leaves a lot to be desired, if my Dad was still alive he would certainly criticise the state of it LOL (he was a builder)
The other side was harder work as I did quite a lot of alterations on the image - for a starter the original picture was a white suit!
A close up of the extended brick wok I love it that much LOL! And now for something completely different this is a double page layout done with a kit from my local scrapbook shop, I missed the class and although the lovely Sandra sent through photos of the original it was stamp heavy and stamps I don't have so I took up the challenge and did something completely different with it.It was also to prove that I can still scrapbook as it's been an absolute age since I have, note the art journaling style blocks on the left hand side!
And I added sewing on the page as well - something I haven't done in ages, although not sure if the combination of crossbows and hearts makes sense?
Ok I'll leave you with photos of the in progress art journaling day my Mum and I enjoyed last week - I had to document just how messy we were on the day! - Look at the state of it!
We had such fun though so I didn't mind at all!
OK you've reached the bottom of my war and peace - if you got to this point without dozing off leave us a message! Hope you're all having a good day - make up bag calling and seven minutes til we need to set off!
