Lily's Painting

At school, Lily had to reproduce a cubism picture.... here's her painting. I am SO SO proud of her! Lily says most children at school use felt pens and pencils so i'm glad I can offer her the opportunity to use acrylics and watercolours for her work.

just pinched this off the bbc website to show what the original looks like!

Pay it Forward

well, i'm hoping to be a lucky one on tina s blog! for the pay if forward art :-)

I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF (Pay it forward) exchange.

I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise!

The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I love this idea!

WS ~ Diamonds

I love the colour combo of turquoise and purple which I've used here, however, you can barely see the diamonds are stamped in purple stazon as it's such a dark colour.

Saturday Stampers ~ Tone on Tone

I've chosen to do blue for this challenge as it's not a colour I really use too often. I used a large versacolour ink pad which has a range of different shades of blue on it for the background... used colourbox catseye cerulean blue and midnight blue for the stamping.
I've made two things very similar as I wasn't sure if the 4x4 is a bit too 'busy' so I made a atc which isnt as 'busy' but looks very similar! lol (waffle waffle!) The main stamp is from the 'Christmas Past' plate from Time To Stamp.
Thanx for looking :-)

TMTA ~ houses

This is my submission for this weeks tmta challenge on houses... its also my 'H' alpha swap with Donna.
