Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday
to you all! Thanks for your entries into last weeks birdy themed challenge - it is good to be back and thank you for your lovely comments too! The song title and theme this time is all about... NATURE. To
join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something; a card, canvas, ATC, a piece of altered art, bring a bit of outdoors onto your artwork, use a nature themed stamp, use nature's colours... the choice.. it be yours! Add in the theme AND some stamping. Then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to
the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you. If you
haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or
by emailing a small res.pic to me or by leaving me a link to your Pinterest or any other photo hosting site. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 19th September 2015.
My entry this week is a canvas I made as a "class sample" for a private class a few weeks ago. It is an 8 x 8 canvas board and I used Pion Design papers - which I absolutely love, love, love because they have Lily of the Valley and birds printed onto them... and the colours worked perfectly with the colour palette I seem to prefer! Mmm. Blues.... again!!! The stamps are by Darkroom Door... my very favourite butterfly set "Wings" and the sentiment is just about perfect I reckon.
I do love adding in bits of nature into my creations... the twigs are from a hebe that is getting a bit straggly and the feather is one I picked up on one of my wanderings... I am a bit of a womble so do tend to pick things up just in case they "come in" if you know what I mean!
Mr Mojo has been very ungallantry and has released himself from my desk (he must be Houdini) and has hidden himself away somewhere in the Room of Stash... I know he is here, just lurking slightly out of vision... you know when you see something out of the corner of your eye but when you turn to look there's nowt there? Yep, that!!! But! What he doesn't know is that I have been drawing and sketching ideas for things to make so the very moment he pops his head back up, he is getting stapled back down onto that desk again! I don't think I have ever had a dry spell such as this one... I guess outside influences and health issues do have a bearing on how juicy one's Mojo is... but enough is enough... I need to get back to making stuff regularly!!! Perhaps having a room that resembles a landfill site isn't helping... I need to create order in the Room of Stash before I can actually relax and get creative... it is that mountain to climb first though.... not figuratively either... no! The mountain of junk and general detritis that has built up over the months needs to be scaled and seriously, I fear for my safety!!! I shall have to stop procrastinating and get active! But maybe first a little cup of coffee..... ahem.... quite!!!
Anyways... whilst I go off and search through cupboards, shelves and several inches of dust, I shall leave you with my thanks for looking and reading and sticking with me whilst I seem to have dried up... and my greetings for a very goodly day! TTFN!
