A Life Book lesson

This year I have joined Life Book, and am determined to get further than March, which is where I gave up last year. I will try to do some of the old lessons, but don't hold your breath.
This is one of Tam's who runs the course and it is in the first week. Just in case you didn't guess, she supposed to be a garden fairy. No I do not have elephants in my garden

Thursday Journal with Neet

My choice this week, and it's grey and pink with Window as the subject. My second colour is green.
The background is Dylusion pain with the use of a stencil to make it look like wallpaper.
I cut out a picture from my gardening magazine and some brown for the window. The two figures are Dylusions and I coloured them with watercolour pens and pencils.

Tag Tuesday -- Anything goes

This fortnight on Tag Tuesday it is Valerie's turn to choose the theme, which is Anything goes.
I have chosen to do a textured tag with no particular focal point. I have used various ways of making texture such as Plasterers tape, texture paste through stencils, scraps of torn paper and buttons. I also included a topper from my stash which I am trying to use up.

Every Inchie Monday -- France

This week on Every Inchie Monday we are back in Europe, and it is the turn of France. As soon as I think of France my mind goes to Paris and all it's famous buildings, wine, the Alps, the Loire valley,
the famous caves of Lascaux, and others too numerous to list here.
For my sewn one I have sewn the Eiffel tower with sewing cotton, and for the card one I have drawn the Arc de Troimphe.

3D embroidery no 8

This time I have used brown and gold and really enjoyed doing this one. After the green it's my favourite. The scanner has made the colours go a bit blue though.

Thursday Journal with Neet

Neet's choice this week with Hearts and flowers and the colours funky fuchsia and slate grey. I added some yellow with mine for the bull dog whose name is Butch.
I used the two main colours on the background and a stencil of flowers with the same colours on the top. The figures are all Dylusions.

Tag Tuesday -- New beginnings

For Wilma's theme on Tag Tuesday I have chosen Bird eggs as a new start in the Spring for the birds. I am away for a while, but will try to do another one when I get back. I seem to be chasing my tail at the moment.
