art from the heart class and my first inchie

i haven't got around to finishing the inside of the album yet, but here is the project from tim's art from the heart class. i love this album, it combined a number of techniques, but the one i loved most is the type set letters, they are made from grungeboard - who knew??!!

i am getting around for round two with tim on thursday at artsycrafts and there is an inchie swap taking place. i've never made one before, but i love to work in miniature and this was a perfect excuse to indulge.

anyway here is my first attempt, i am quite pleased with the result.

cards to share

for my husband's birthday

one little word - february

This months prompt is to find evidence of your word throughout your daily life.

this was a perfect start:-

also, to help keep me focussed, i ordered the one little word necklace from lisa leonard. it's beautiful, i love it!

something creative to share

i was asked to make a special birthday card this weekend and here it is. the papers are a mix of bo bunny and prima, 2 great favourites of mine. the flowers are also prima, and the tag is a tim hotlz adage ticket. all the papers have been inked with tim's vintage photo distress ink.

stamperama haul

last sunday i went to stevenage with jen, to try and drum up some inspiration and to see what was new. i guess it was a bit early for the cha releases to be available but i did manage to find a few little treasures, aren't those little bottles of glossy accents the cutest!!

olw february

my word is being put to the test at the moment. the prompt for february encourages us to look for our word in the world, and photograph what we find.

i have several exams to pass over the next two years, i need to believe i can get through these.

focus, i can do this...
