Every Inchy Mondays Inchy 4* 'Maudlin'

Here is My Monday Inchy
'Maudlin'
I decided to base it on a sad face.
I distressed an image and glued this to some thick card 1"x1"
I then used didtress ink around the edges and lightly sanded the image.
I used vintage lace along the bottom.
For the tears I used a Versa marker pen to draw the tears and then sprinkled Bronze pearl-ex over them.

Highly Prized 'Sketchbook Challege'

I Have joined the Sketchbook challenge.
The challenge is to work in your sketchbook each month, on a 
suggested subject.
The subject provided for January is : HIGHLY PRIZED
I have done two pages so far these are based on the Sea and My Garden.

If you also would like to join this challenge the button is on my sidebar.

I painted the pages in acrylics and added papers then painted some more.
I have also used fabrics for texture.
I painted the sea, and used items found on the beach.

For the Garden page I used the same process but used some items from the garden.
also I used some stamps and embossed.

 I have also been to Moments in Bude and bought some lovely papers,

I am just thinking about what to make using them.
Tags are on my mind.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy New Year

Sorry about being soooooooooooo  belated but have been suffering from the dreaded flu
Better late than never.

So as I am feeling a bit better I am now starting my New Year.

This year I am going to try to blog more often.
Please note the word TRY !

I am going to TRY and make more goodies and am thinking about arranging a goody swap.
Also I am thinking along the lines of a weekly post a pen letter.
for 1 month per quater.  In this we will WRITE a pen letter to unknown participant and post them a small ATC or tag or handpainted postcard.

Will post more about these when I have worked out the details. 
( see I have been pondering idea's although I'll)

All the best for the New Year
XSam.
