Please note that the tiles on the roof were placed individually...I used a tiny tag punch and placed them all one tiny tile at a time.
The house is from Doodlebug design

I enjoy sketching but have been so busy for a while now that I just haven't had the time, it relaxes me and I really enjoy it and that is what is important. This sketch doesn't mean anything, she doesn't even have a title or name, she was just something I did last night as I lay in bed. She won't stay as a lead sketch, I am going to get out my inks and pastels and finish her off...in my own time :)

It's summer here in Australia, so spring is a while off, but with the heat exhausting us all I thought I would create something a little "cooler", Spring Carnival is a bit bigger than the last few dolls I have done, her body is 11 inches in length, the style I have created for her is, what I call, "bottle".

I always state that I'm not a scrapbooker...and I'm truly not, I began my papercraft journey as one and was very dedicated to it, but I totally sucked at it (I can fondly reflect). What has this got to do with the picture? That's a layout I did (as per request from the magazine), it was recently published in Australian Scrapbook Creations (vol8 #11). I was asked to share my fave technique (impasto :) ) I've been published a couple of times but this is the first time in a scrapbook magazine...I guess I'm a casual scrapper :)

My friend (and uber talented scrapper), Gilly came over a couple of weeks ago and I noticed one of her pieces had a lovely leaf headed pin, inspired I decided to decorate some pins myself...I'm going to make some polymer leaf heads when the weather gives us a break.
The paper flower is made of stained and shredded scraps of paper...just for the fun of it :)
The canvas...sorry that is all I can share at the moment but a big thanks to Jan Palmer for sending me the newspaper plates.
It's summer time here in Australia and sooooo hot, I'm not a summer person at all, but I find if I keep myself busy and distracted then I don't feel so ragged. I am currently running another Facebook ATC swap, this one is on behalf of a new friend, Jan Palmer. These are just some of my ATCs for the swap.
"Butterflies", "Fleur De Lys" and "Black, White & Blue"

Happy New Year to everybody, I hope you all have a super creative year ahead...and other good stuff! I bought a ticket for tomorrow nights' $30 million lotto, so please feel free to cross your fingers and toes, Disneyland is a must if we win.
Last night I sat out the front watching my two boys doing relay races up and down the drive way with 65 sparklers, they had fun, I got a small burn on my foot from JD dropping a hot wire on me...oh and I started a small fire, but all in all we had a nice time.
I created my first ATC for 2010 by taking part in Scraptivates' online challenge, hop over and check it out, you can win a prize...and just like lotto "you gotta be in it to win it"
