L3 Studio Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 7


This weeks L3 Studio Compendium of Curiosities Challenge is page 55. I have made a hanging fragment out of a packet of fragments that the lovely Pat gave me and will be adding this to a project that I will be finishing later in the week. I have had a small surgery this week so I have been unable to complete the project for the challenge but I will finish it I promise!!!

What is that!!!????


What is that?? is the question I had yesterday about 500 times, well its Ruby the ''Labradoodle'' and my sisters almost 1yr old puppy and currently the bane of my life. My Aunt was supposed to be looking after her but when I went to pick up some things yesterday for my Mom I was told ''Take it, its doing my f***ing head in'' so I have to look after her for 2 weeks while my sister is in Spain....... she not trained in any way, an escape artist and doesn't come back so you cant let her get out or let her off the lead, she is eating everything and peeing everywhere, its a good job I have a wash vac, the things already nearly worn out from so much use!! So anyone want a dog? any takers? its err house trained honest!!!!

Gutter Girls Prompt 39 (Warning Swearing Involved)


Due to the image of my journal page containing rude words I thought I would put up a random cuteness picture from my kitties first and post a warning. So here's Wodderwick and Stumpalina, they don't share very well and were both fighting over who had the crinkly tube then they got bored and went to sleep in it like this, odd I know. So on to the Gutter Girlz prompt and swearing.


The part of The Gutter Girlz Prompt 39 that I have used is the song Dickhead by Kate Nash, now I can't say I liked it and in no way did the grammar make sense but I used it to my own advantage and changed the grammar (I really couldn't stand it, ''Why are you being a dickhead for'' I mean seriously, no wonder kids these days are like they are, they cant even speak, anyhow back to the topic) So, mixed media piece in my Moleskine journal, Dyan's new inks  and they have 10% off on-line orders at the moment too, Lots of stamping with distress inks and other random inks I put my grubby paws on. If you haven't guessed it yet this is another page about my ex. I cant seem to do anything different when I get him out of my system, the page's all look the same to me, I think its the anger I cant concentrate and just get so annoyed I have to blurt it all out at once so it doesn't look very pretty.

Canvass Picture


It was my sisters birthday last week and well I hold my hands up I forgot - luckily for me I haven't seen her so she has no idea that I forgot!! Stroke of luck or what? So I have made her a little canvass that I am combining with a couple of challenges.  First is Studio L3 Challenge: Multi Medium Collage, Second is Tuesday Tagger's Challenge: Make a canvass which is sponsored by the lovely Dyan over at Art from the Heart.

Canvass and wings are painted with ranger paint dabbers, heart and wording are painted with blonde moments acrylic paint. Heart and wings are made from grungeboard, heart covered with book page using multi-medium. Phrase is from Tim Holtz. Hope she likes it!!

Dirty Hands = Fun Day


Stained hands = a fab day at Art from the Heart!!

Today we made a very usable little handbag from some cloth and some inks and a nifty cheap sewing machine, here's my effort, head on over to Dyan's blog later (once she has uploaded the pics) to check all the other class member's bag's out. (sorry for the bad light we are in the middle of another thunderstorm)

The dog days (were) over


Well just when I thought all the problems with the pub next door were all fixed and a journal page was finished that very night the same problem of noise in the early AM hours started again. Sods law really I shouldn't have done a page so fast.
