GOTHIC ARCHES - 'TEXT' AND THE THREE MUSES - 'HATS'


























Hi,

Have just started my first Art Journal and really not sure what I am doing at the moment so its all trial and error, but am thoroughly enjoying it as its so relaxing. So am putting this page into the Three Muses challenge - Hats.......


The second piece is the front cover of a small book which is going to a blogging friend for her birthday and I think it will amuse her........well I hope so........ and hope this will be OK for the Gothic Arches challenge - Text.


Both of these challenges are just for fun. But there is such a variety of artwork contributed and all terrific pieces by some wonderful creators. Hope you get the time to visit both these blogs (shown on my sidebar) and have a go yourself.


Well its all exciting here as the cards and packages are piling up from some terrific blogging friends, just cannot believe how kind you all are. Tomorrow I am 65 so hopefully I will have reached the age of maturity................the body has, but the mind........heaven only knows what age that is..........lol


Thank you for supporting me and all my adventures into craft and wish you all a very happy weekend. Will be catching up with your blogs tonight after Strictly Come Dancing and Merlin......Take care, Annette x

Yes, I love both of these too - especially the "naughty ladies" - a totally scrumptious card. The all-hat-and-legs card is funny and creative. Thanks so much for joining in the challenge, Netty.
