Collage Obsession Easter

Here's my Easter postcard using the image on collage obsession. I've been wanting to join in with this challenge blog for a while now but I never seem to have time, so I'm glad to be joining in this week :)

Mess or Muse??

OMG! I was beavering away this morning making some bunny people happy as a clam then disaster struck! I couldn't find my white pen. aaggghhh.... at that moment I actually 'looked' at my little table I use whilst watching TV and creating. The table measures 17" x 24" but can you see any of it??? NO! gosh i was so shocked by the amount of mess I had on it, I had to take a photo!
What's there? wool, knitting needles, collage sheets, bit of cut out backgrounds, scissors, inks, collage images, posca pens, a pedometer (?), an easter chick, a cat toy, stamps and glue

Had to take a pic of the pup-stars keeping me company! The pooches look massive on this photo but they are small.... the cats are bigger!

Time for Tea

Yes, it's tea time on SPA this week.

I made two postcards (whilst drinking several cups of tea!)

I'm sweet enough....

i've made a 4x4 and used Collage Anonymous images.

on Gingersnapcreations the random redhead challenge is 'growth' ~ i thought of birds and eggs which in turn made me think of the age old question..... which came first.... the chicken or the egg? well i changed the chicken to a bird! lol

spring has sprung

on Theme Thursday this week the theme is open as long as it's on a 2 x 4" piece of work. Here's mine... I've gone with 'spring' as it's such a vibrant time of year.

Black and White Tag

On Louise's Tuesday tag challenge. I really struggle with black and white. I tend to see it as 'unfinished' but I've managed to make two tags!

Thank you for looking and all your comments on my blog :-D

Hector's Party

On crazy amigo's they are having a party! here's my atc for the theme. Using cute dog image and stars from Collage Anonymous on Etsy and the mushroom's are from Julia (ceremony).


Martina chose our theme on SPA this week... my biggest challenge... STEAMPUNK. I struggled at first to think what to do... but once Lily suggested making wackadoodle dolls to use I found it much easier. LandofNoDStudio's on flickr was a great source of inspiration too as Deborah has some steampunk people already made up on a FREE collage sheet!

Here's mine
I'm really quite pleased with it!
