Reading for Fun

Hi, its ages and ages since I've entered into the Art Journey Challenges and the challenge this month is to use a page from a Dictionary.  The background is from a Dictionary page and so is the paper the little boy is reading.....so cute


Stamps used:  Art Journey and Molly Blooms.  Products used:  Tim Holtz Diecut, Distress Inks, Paint Dabber, Whisper Pens, Black Flowersoft and a little chicken left over from Easter, he looks a bit scary doesn't he............lol

Also wanted to let you know I won't be blogging for a few days as am catching up on some Artwork, but  will be visiting your blogs as and when I get the opportunity.  Wishing you all a smashing weekend, Hugs Annette xx

PS.....wow have just realised my blog has now 400 followers, that's an awesome responsibility don't you think.....Hells Bells will have to sort out a giveaway in celebration.

Hi Annette,Thank you for your sweet comment, I am feeling a little better today, sat at my computer in my dressing gown., having spent four days in bed, coughing like an old man.
I have missed seeing everyone’s creations and am now up to a bit of commenting…… so here goes.

Congrats, Netty, for having 400 followers! Wow! When I check the stats on my blog, I think you are my #2 commenter. Your work is so beautiful and you are so real (as opposed to being fake) that people love to come visit your blog. This piece with the dictionary pages is wonderful. Love the fact that even the little boy's reading material is of dictionary pages.
