My Fantastic Followers:)

Friday, July 1, 2011


Hi Everyone!!!!
If you read my last post, by now,  you could be wondering what DID I come up with??
Before I show you what I created, I would like to recap and add  from my last post...
Make it Crafty is a fabulous Australian site and last weekend I bought  some wonderful digital images and to my delight, Zoe had a 40% off all MiC images,  so I couldn't stop at just one or two or three or.........could I;)
Anyway, I just had to make something with these gorgeous images especially when MiC was having 5 fun challenges ....and mind you I used all MiC images to create it.
So I put my thinking cap on and came up with.....
It took me just over a week to finish, as I could only spend about 30 minutes each night after work but the remainder I finished today...
And here is what I did today to finish off my little creation:)
This is the right corner and if you look closely I have added Zoe's talkative parrot in the shape of a button that I made....
To colour the images I used the baby oil technique with derwents, copic markers and crayons.
On the left hand side, I added these cute button mushrooms.
I love this spray of prima wild flowers, sort of  reminds me of the gorgeous bloom in W.A.
I also added more flowers to the spray,  just give it better coverage...
And here is the finished frame...I added my own sentiments too.
You know if I had the time I would have loved to papertole entire pic but unfortunately it would take me forever...but then again one day I just might:)
PS: The camera really doesn't do the images or colours justice...
Now off to some challenges
