This is the Lo id did for Ann's Sketch challenge in Artistic Document. Tried a few new techniques. well new to me. I was surprised how quick this came together. I used Joss paper on the open heart and distress ink. On the solid heart i glued muslin and sprayed with chocolate glimmermist. I also sprayed the flowers with marshmallow glimmermist.

Happy Valentines day girls. (and guys, just incase any look at this blog)
What a day!!! spent the day with Terri & Kerryn at the papercraft roadshow. Spent WAAAAY to much but now i don't have to buy for at least a week. lol
picked up some great tips from a couple of stalls. did a couple of tags. Watched Julie from connection demonstrate and had to go back and purchase some more of her gorgeous stuff. will be playing around tomorrow night when i have my daughter over for scrapping.
Charlotte from Charlottes web did a demo for the DVD that is going to be made from all the shows around Australia. So we stopped and watched her make up a little tag book with Glynn Nicols(the comedian) sitting next to her. couldn't here a lot of it but we could see what she was generally doing so will have to have a go at doing that. very vintage
One thing that stuck in my mind today and that is i over think most of my LO's so i have to stiop thinking and just do.
Well that was my day. which was a memorable one and a very enjoyable one.

This is the LO i did for Ann's Inspirational Challenge. Hope you like it Ann. Its In Memeory of Noriels and Gary's Uncle and Aunt who were two very beautiful loving people.

This is the card i made for my man for tomorrow. My mum ripped the instructions out of a mag for me and i thought i'd give it ago.
excuse my meesy had writing and mush.

This is my LO for a challenge set over at Artistic Document. The challenge was to do three techniques, Masking stamping and inking. Ive done the title a little bit cryptically. I've called it Timeless Love. The timeless part is that the clock has no hands. Hubby groaned when i showed him and told him the title. The Picture was taken when we went on the Melbourne tram for dinner. We went with my sister & brother-in -law. Fantastic night. i would recommend anyone to do it.
