An Arty Crafty Week!

Hi there blogging friends! I enrolled in Christy Tomlinson's 'She Art' on-line class earlier in the year, so have had a nice week coming up with my own style using the techniques Christy teaches.

Christy's girls are so bright and colourful and her backgrounds are alive with stamping, doodling and layers upon layers of papers and paint. If you haven't seen Christy's work you must pop over to her blog and drool over her talent.

Anyway; I'm a bit more conservative with my work, so came up with my first girl on a soft, soft background. I've allowed more of my papers to show through and tried to capture my girl walking through a garden in autumn.

With the aim of being as original as possible; I decided that my girls will have hats on their heads, so this one has a nice soft hat for her stroll in the warm sunshine. I also decided that I would have a foreground in front of my girls and this pretty bird sitting on a gorgeous open rose was just perfect. The papers I used are; 'Sweet Nothings' by KAISERCRAFT....just adore them!
Tags were also on my desk this week. Below is a special tag for my partner Jane who I have been paired with by Tee on The Altered Paper Blog. It is winging its way over to the USA as I type this post. Our subject was "Spring", which I believe is the upcoming season for the States.
The next tag is one of three that I completed for my friends at 'Roses On My Table' for our theme 'Lights-Camera-Action'. It was great fun searching through clip art images of Actors and Actress's to come up with a layout. In the end, I decided to go with; Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon who are both dressed up as women in the movie 'Some Like It Hot'. Marilyn Munro was the leading Actress in the movie as well.
I didn't have good light to take this pic but Tony is saying to Jack "this corset is killing me Jack" and Jack is thinking.....Mamma said there would be days like this! I loved keeping this layout in the black and white movie look of days gone by.
