Introducing . . .

 . . .  my new friend, you will see him poking his head into some of the pictures . . . 


Last weekend I decided to have a Kate Crane inspiration day, so I prepped my work surface chose some colours and some paper, popped Kate's DVD on, and away I went, I had great fun if slightly messy (buts that what's supposed to happen isn't it) and created various journal backgrounds, a colour wheel (hope you are proud of me Kate) and a masterboard.







The masterboard got chopped up into tags and that was as far as I got at the weekend, then it didn't get returned to for a couple of days as had a humdinger of a cold, when I got back to it decided I needed to add stampotique figures to it, so did some stamping and some pro marker colouring, sort of worked out what I wanted to do on Friday evening and then was gonna get started on Saturday, but I got sidetracked, I blame Kaz, she had been playing with the new Tim stamps, now there is only one of them I really wanted and off course that was featured in Kaz's play, so before you could say boo, I'm on the phone to Pickleberry to reserve them and outa of the door to get them, well Kaz you have a lot to answer for because of course I didn't just get the one set of stamps, there were other tempatations put in my way, like a set of the new Dylussions and a mask of two.  Anyway one happy bunny set off home if slightly (cough cough) poorer.  So here are the tags that I have finished, bright and pink, not my usual colour scheme.




So did you spot my new friend, yup its Billy the skull, there is a new kids magazine series building a skeleton and luckily the skull was in part one for 99p, well it would have been rude not to, so I bought him and am hoping to distress him so much he wont be recognizable, poor Billy !!!  LOL

Oh and finally here is a pic of the rose my boys bought me for valentines, its looking a bit worse for wear but I am loving the colour tones in it, now I want to keep this forever, do I press it now or when its dried out?

You are fabulous in your pinkness, Pidd - I love it all! Also insanely jealous you can just pop out to Pickleberry Craft. My nearest craft outlet is the dreaded Hobbycraft. Looking forward to seeing Billy in all his glory - have you thought of making him into a Day of the Dead sugar skull?
