Rose for you

Today it is pouring with rain here, such a nice change, its lovely to sit here in my craft room and hear the steady pitter patter on the roof. We have snow on the mountain peeks now and there is a definite crispness in the air. Winter is on its way. I love winter, it means I can snuggle into my craft room and not feel bad about not being out in the garden!  

Today I do not have much to share, I have been busy all weekend working on my Paper Chase brief, but am not allowed to share that with you. Instead I will show you the very simple page I put together to go with my sketch for BOA F

 As I said, its simple. I have used a denim strip of fabric, in keeping with my son's jeans, I have also used leaves  and a single stem of barley grass, in keeping with the photo. This challenge calls for a little, or alot of distressing. I added just a little, in the way of an embossed 'smudge' near the bottom of my LO.

    This is the sketch, simple as well, which I hope allows you plenty of room to do your own thing.

To join in with our challenge, and to check out Carols awesome take on this sketch, pop over to BOAF

Latter this week I am going to have the pleasure of Kristi Wrights company. I 'met' Kristi a few years back through the Glamour Girl Stamps Swap site, and got to know her reasonably well via the computer.I have had the pleasure of meeting her in real life at SENZ last year, now this week she is coming to stay for a couple of nights! How cool is it when you get to meet up with on-line friends.....VERY very cool indeed!

Thanks for popping by and have a great week!

What fabulous layouts! Love all the open space. Our weather will be warming up soon, hopefully and I'll be neglecting my craft room. LOL Funny how things are the opposite for us.

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.
