Queen of Autumn

Hey guys....
i'm late blogging this... no excuses as I made this on Sunday!!
The theme is 'leaves' and Ive chosen to use autumnal leaves in my creation.  The lady is off a collage sheet from Art Tea Life on Etsy
You may not be able to tell on the picture but every one of these leaves is cut out by hand and built up.

Hi guys

This is my tag for the Go Tag Thursday theme of Go BOLD.... well now are bold colours the same as BRIGHT colours? That was my interpretation of it.

Windows of the Mind

this week's Take a Word is yellow. I'd seen a lot of yellow door images on pinterest but then I stumbled upon this building with lots of  windows.

this is a page in my mini A6 journal.

Hot Cocoa

still a bit for that isn't it?

I love these vintage adverts though and this one has inspired my theme for Sunday Postcard Art this week.

here is my tag for Go Tag Thursday where the theme is book print.

I've used book pages on the background of my tag plus I stamped the flowers onto book pages before water colouring them.

Our little baby boy, Diablo is now 5 weeks old and is a real munchkin. He's very mischievous and a rascal.

His eyes are just starting to change colour.
love him

New Journal

A few week's ago I got myself a smaller journal A6 in size... however,  after one page it fell apart... the glue had not gripped the pages.

so yesterday I found this one, it's still A6 and it's sewn together (from Rymans - £3.49)
the pages aren't super thick 110 gsm but seem to work ok.

so here's the first page in this journal.

i'm entering it into the Take a Word challenge of circles.

Round and Round

this week's SPA theme is chosen by Kay and it is WHEELS

When I first heard the theme I could only think of wheels/cogs machinery but having pondered upon the theme some more I had some ideas.... spinning wheel... wheel of fortune... bicycle wheels. I love the idea of the wheel of fortune tarot card and so I found this fortune teller image on a sheet I had from Art Tea Life on Etsy and also on the set of images was this little tricycle.

it's very textural IRL
