I am not quite sure how I feel about this piece....I think I like it, but I am not quite sure if it has enough depth or flow to it yet. And does anyone know why my images have gone all pink? Is it a funny reaction with the lazertran? I have never used that before either so lots of firsts for me this week!

Continuing with 2009 and this page shows what my children did with our downstairs toilet. None of them liked going in it so I said they could paint it so that they WOULD! We found all the tins of leftover paint and away they went. The only bit done by an adult was the shark which Dad drew (but they painted!)

Week 5 and our Recipe was a stamped heart, red and text. I have had this stamp for a while, I bought it off a forum buddy, but I think I have only used it once, and I don't know why 'cos it's lovely! The BG I did using pastels and a sheet of scrap paper and copious amount of hairspray to fix it! Then added a strip of torn red card and the stamp, coloured with the good ol' water colour pencils. Finally I had a space at the bottom so added the 3 eyelets!
Week 6 requires BIRDS!!!! OMG better go start thinking....

challenge is "Love is in the Air". So this is my Valentine's card for my OH! I just loved this little frog when I saw him but this is the first time I have used him ...And I got to play with my cosmic shimmers (or whatever they are called!)

Anyway onto my LTDO piece which this week is "Backgrounds" Well it HAD to involve my new misters! I decided to make a page for my Snow Book. So i ripped up some pages from an old book (the Snow Queen), inked the edges and stuck them down. Then I covered them with spritzed distress inks and sprayed on a white shimmer mist (think it's called baby's breath!)

I found this rather cute paper with owls on; doubly significant as Leaders are different varieties of owl (well they are in Brownies. At Guides I am Robin and the Leader is Kestrel) and not only that, I think I got about 2 hours sleep as the owls in the wood were screeching all night long! A very scary sound when you are on the hard forest floor with only a plastic sheet for protection! I also added this little stamped owl!
Did I enjoy the experience? Hmmmm not too sure, the setting up and building and cooking bit was great but I think I prefer a proper tent as a minimum requirement!
