She made me do it

Amanda “demanded” I submit to the ARTastic Challenge for this month LOL, as she is Guest Designer. Of course I said anything for such a loyal customer who has turned out to be such a good on line buddy! Yeah good on me, until I saw what we had to get our inspiration from!

What the heck!

Okay abstract that ain’t me, so I did a bit of changing – turned it into a sketch and dumped the white for yellow. Shazza’s probably thinking what planet is this girl on! Its my own planet Shazza so far off this one!

The dress Sarah is wearing had pink flowers on it, perfect, the colours matched our new yellow and pink flowers. And our new pink fabric brads, which are a darker pink this time were the exact colour of our other flowers. So I was onto it … well so I thought …. 2 weeks it has taken me to get this completed. Am I happy with it, sort of!

I used our white scalloped felt frame and sprayed it with Yellow Daisy Glimmer Mist - doesn't show up there well on this photo

Deep Pink flower with Eye Pin, White Organza Ribbon and our Large Heart Locket Charm

Yellow stemmed flowers tied with our new 20mm white organza ribbon and our yellow and white frangipanis

These are the new flowers I mentioned with our Princess Crown Charm. Used two different sizes of our white organza ribbon on these flowers.

I sprayed the Buzz and Bloom chipboard with Yellow Daisy again, and the scroll chipboard is from SBL in the chipboard misc section. The stemmed flowers are the dark pink ones.

Oh well all good things come to an end … school holidays start in 40 minutes. Mind you these holidays are going to be a good one with us going down to Tassie, stopping in Sydney for about 6 hours, so I can show the angels the Bridge and Opera House. And most importantly my gorgeous beautiful boy is turning 13. (I can still say that cause the hormones haven’t kicked it too much YET!)

I feel old!!!!!!!!!!! How about you mum? what’s worse a forty year old daughter or a 13 year old grandson. I can hear the phone ringing now LOL

Take care
