Apologies for being late with this challenge - I seem to be experiencing no end of problems this week with uploading to blogs, commenting and just connecting to the outside world - aarggggh!!!! Anyway.....
This weeks theme over at Stampotique has been chosen by the very talentedValerie
who has challenged us to use various shades of winter whites in our projects - white,
shimmer white, off-white, ecru, eggshell, etc. Here's what Valerie has to say about her color choice, "Well, it wasn't planned, but this theme has a striking
significance for those of us here on the East Coast who have just endured a big
winter snow storm! All of nature is drooping under the weight of a heavy white
winter blanket! Mother Nature really does provide the most beautiful
inspiration!" I decided to make a bookmark using Karin which has been coloured in with Polychromos Pencils. A length of ecru velvet ribbon, some metal embelishments and here it is.....
Do pop over and see what my other very talented DT members have created for this lovely challenge and hope you will join in with us. Thank you for looking
Hello, I'm Polly.
I love altered art, cardmaking, ATC's, in fact anything that needs gluing, stamping, inking or cutting is just my idea of heaven!!!!
I am pleased to say that my husband of 7 years is extremely tolerant of my crafts, especially as I tend to spread from one room to another,well aren't all we all a little messy when we're being creative!!
I like to incorporate all kinds of embellishments in my work especially lace, ribbon, butterflies, angels, hearts etc in fact anything pretty and girly. I soooo love pretty and quirky pieces of art. I was lucky enough to see Tim Holtz in the flesh recently - seeing him was just fantastic. It was only a one hour demonstration but its amazing how much inspiration you come away with.
I hope you enjoy my blog
