Fabric and stitching

Have you checked out this months challenge over on the Up2scrap blog?? If not, you still have time! Check it out HERE

Here's my take. Just for fun I went bright, and I could not resist a play in photoshop...check out the coloured headbands in my black and white photo.

Instead of flowers, which I tend to use far too often, I went for star embellishments. I cut most of these out on my cricut, except for the tiny ones, which are punched.
I love Vicki's pocket, but was tiring hard not to copy. Instead of the pocket I stitched up a little party handbag.
My photos are slotted into the bag, along with a little letter to our dear daughter, which is hidden behind the photos, to keep it 'private'!
Louise posts a new challenge on the Up2scrap blog each month so remember to keep a look out.

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
