Happy News for Lily!

Lily had her first interview yesterday to get into a college (ncn) in Nottingham. She got in! yay! Needless to say they were very impressed with her artwork. However, she has several other interviews before she makes her mind up which she wants to go to in September.

After the interview we went and celebrated at Rock City with Reel Big Fish!

This is part of Lily's final project at school ~ she has to make something 3d and she chose to make this dress out of chicken wire and papier mache which she then painted on and is hard at work finishing off!

oh wow I've stitched on card!

yes I am sooo pleased with myself! I kept wanting to do some machine stitching but was too scared in case it went wrong and ruined my artwork. But yesterday I had the machine out sewing an art bag for Lily so I thought *go for it* so I did!

I'm using these for the MMM challenge which is something new as stitching on cards is something new and very EXCITING for me! lol

I used Spice it Up collage sheets for the images and the backgrounds are both handmade by moi.

is the theme this week on SPA ~ chosen by our first host of twenty-ten Anne Swinkels

I've made two postcards even though I really struggled with an idea for this week. Rapunzel was my first thought and so Lily drew me a Rapunzel head to use. The second one has a similar vein running through it.... she was my first Rapunzel-looking lady from a magazine fitted with a new face from jades funky junk on Etsy.
