Your Fate Awaits

Aloha

This week's SPA is Hawaii.... chosen by the wonderful Electra

I've had these images printed out for a while and didn't think I'd get anything made as my mojo doesn't want me to play these days.

But I've snuck in just under the bar




thanks for visiting my blog
see you soon

Altered Cutlery Wallet

I came across some cutlery wallet recently and I knew without a doubt that I could do something with it. I was inspired by LaBlanche



i am loving it (and that is a rare thing from me lol)

Pictures of Lily

This week's SPA theme is photographs chosen by Audrey.
I've chosen one of my fave photo's of my beautiful daughter Lily.


Not happy with the photo of this postcard but my camera is hiding so I only have my phone to take photos with at the moment.

What's all this?

I've heard a lot of anti-Valentines comments of late.... I don't care for these 'hallmark holidays' one way or the other but I do love the vintage images that represent LOVE

The theme on Lunagirl Moonbeams this month is.... LOVE
it's a great opportunity to win some digital collage images... so why not come over and join in? Don't forget it's your interpretation of LOVE

I'm trying to challenge myself to use 'square' images rather than cutting all the images out....it's very hard for me to do. (watch this space!)

Question of Medium?

I've  been pondering the question of mixed media.... I like to refer to my 'artwork' as mixed media.... I even googled the definition which states.... artwork made using two or more types of media. Then I pondered some more.....  is  what I make better described as multi layered?

This was my entry for last week's Orange theme on SPA.... which I didn't get around to blogging in time, even though I had made it in advance...

and so to break the postcard down... the base card is white that I added some some rubons to and then some acrylic paint . Then I used some mica sprays on top to add some shimmer. Collage images and stamping and some water soluble pastels. Lastly, I added some flower soft (i've never used this but found it in some of my mums craft things) 
Therefore.... is this mixed media or multi layered?

Here is my postcard for  Anne's theme of ADD A CHARM
