Christmas catchup!

Nathalie made me this lovely junkle in our latest QB5 swap, using an old lightbulb and some glitter, totally inspired !! The little hanger is made from buttons, beads and the top of a Xmas bauble! I love it all! Thank you Ms N!
Nathalie also included an inchie, glitter felt, lace, cards and blanks to get me started on a New Year's project, oh and the whole package was filled with snow! I'm still finding it, and it's the end of January!!
Carole made us each an anytime ornie, a 'snippet roll' out of fabric, lace, paper and bits and bobs from her stash.

I love the cotton reel hanger at the top and gorgeous detail she's added. I'm going to try one of these, such a great way to use up all those leftover treasures! Thank you Carole!

All about the birds

I think I've got 'winged things' on my mind at the moment as it's the theme of a swap I'm involved in. Below is another page awaiting writing! (I did say by the end of the year right?)

okay, so this one is stamped!

and a couple of ATC's, Neocolour crayons and babywipe backgrounds, love this effect!

Journal joy

Hello! and Happy New Year! I think the less said about the half of January that's already passed me by the better!! anyway, I hope 2011 is treating you well! I've set myself a new challenge this year and that is to keep an art journal and not give up after two pages! I should say at this point that I don't like my handwriting but with help and plenty from lovely You Tube I will succeed (at least by the end of the year!) I don't want to write a lot, just the odd word here and there to compliment my art.
I didn't trust myself on this and stamped it! the rest will be written if and when...
another page and another writing challenge which I've so far managed to avoid!
Today I went out and bought a small sketch book to practice in! I'll lay down a bit of colour and get writing, EVERY DAY! no really, I will...
