This is a sample I made with one of my new favourite things... Heidi Swapp masks - this is the butterfly one.
I was just doing a really quick 'thing' to see how it came out ... so I stuck the mask onto a sketchbook page that was laying on the desk (there's a lot of those), stippled lettuce and denim (love that colour combo) inks over it and then - 'cos I was on a 'what happens if I do this...' roll by then - peeled it off and stamped over the top of what was left... I really liked it (mmmm could also combine with sequin waste (gotta love that sequin waste!!).
I like that you can see the pencil notes behind the image.

I made a simple set of ATCs for this months theme of Birds......, and here is one of them with the matching card - I always put the ATCs in a co-ordinating card when sending them to to the swap hostess...
its a simple card but I really like it - taking the 'less is more' approach (nb. after I'd taken this photo I penned a silver centre to each flower)
(and I was ahead of the deadline!. . . yeay for me!)
(the bird stamps are from a set of 4 from Hero Arts, branch stamp is Great Impressions)

Someone has taped this notice on the door of an empty shop in Leigh - I thought that was very resourseful of them! - If you want a certain type of shop in your town - ask! If you don't ask you don't get.
(though the person should maybe take a quick walk around the town - there is a haberdashers and two shops that sell art equipment, just around the corner from where the sign was!)
I'll let you know if they get their request!!

The purple wonderfullness (is that even a word? - I don't know, don't care!!) that is Prince at the O2 Stadium in London, in the round !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and we're sitting (well, probably jumping up & down & dancing :o)) 5 rows from the front!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Thank you sooooo much Matt!!) (and sorry M, in advance - this is going to cause me to be singing lots of Prince tracks for a while (before and after the event!) .........)
Now, please excuse me while I go off and dance like a person possessed around the flat for a while - probably 'til I have to go to college at 12.00!! (and I may start again when I get back!!!)
Will post something more creative and sensible later!
Did I mention that I'm going to see Prince!!??
