November..... What's been happening?

Not a lot really!
I think because life was so busy for the last couple of months and next month is Christmas I decided to give myself a little break. Although there have been a trip to Rotorua, Whakatane and Tauranga in there.

This months challenge for ARTastic was one I was looking forward to. The art is called Listen by Kiwi artist Jenny Grant.


The criteria was free choice as long as your inspiration came from this art. For me this piece screamed out texture, layers and subtle colours.

So I decided to scrap a picture of my 'Beautiful Ghoul' Alana in her vampire dress up.

The paper is some left over paper I had from a class with Paula Cheney. I can't remember the brand but I love the deep subtle colours and decided to pick up the shades of yellow through the flowers, inking some ribbon and the lace. To add some texture I rolled the edges of the paper and used Gesso with the Prima Doily stencil. A couple of charms, metal flowers and a bit of bling and I am really happy with this layout!

Thanks for coming and looking.
Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
