Gypsy Dance.....Gypsy Sing....

Time for our next challenge at 


sponsored by PpinkyDolls Art

*using Little Gypsy*

In a previous challenge I saw a gorgeous creation by Aunty Sue
that reminded me how much I enjoy making wall hangers.
*using recycled store bought ones*

...and as I was "tidying" my stash I came across this stunning 
single sheet of glittered card.

I had to cut and join it to fit the mdf board,
but was able to conceal the join under a lace flower and 
layered sentiment :D
*you can just see the sparkle from the glitter to the left*

I knew I was going to use that darling Little Gypsy image in this 
gorgeous meadow,
and it was easy to match up the colours from my Promarker stash.
Then I spotted my yummy Bee die I bought on sale...
3 inches across it cut out beautifully first time!
Set on a piece of cream card stock, added acetate to wings and 
glittered on the underside..I love it!


Inspired by one of my fav All About Eve tracks Gypsy Dance
" In a Circle...in a Ring....
Gypsy Dance....Gypsy Sing..."

Dark humoured....Me???

Ok, some days you just have to let the darkness out to play
*encouraged mightily by  Dream in Darkness and
mwahahaaa.....


It all started quite innocently....
I have these blank ink pads and thought I'd try making my own
random colour pads...

 which are now resting on a shelf...
 but then I had all these ink bottles out ...
 to make smooshy mess with...
 and then the gesso had to play too.
 Soon the stamps wanted to join in...
 which lead to random collage papers spread all over.
 Naughty collage papers...
 more gesso, more collaged stamped paper...

and Dark Art was created mwahahahaha....

I had meant to play along with the Sisterhood last month....
but forgot to finish and post doh.*the traumas of summer break*
These are the pieces I was working on for their 
"Something Old, Something New" challenge.
Guess we'll have to save them for another day :)

Playing along at ;

Enjoy :D XXX

Fall Dressed Up!

Another season and another challenge from
sponsored by


I chose to use 
(coloured with Promarkers)
I cut out the 3 girls so that I could layer them to add dimension
and used a collection of random "autumnal" papers from my stash.
The tiny leaves they are happily kicking through
 I made with a selection of tiny punches
(rather neglected since die cutting arrived).
Finished off with a hint of stickles on the leaves for that frosty morning feel.
Now I'm off to raid my wool stash as I feel the need for 
a colourful jumper so that I can go play in the
leaves as they fall :D
