Challenge 9 for This Thursday

Its been another hectic week, where a lot has happened. Unfortunatly Fiona of This Thursdays design team has decided to leave . due to being amazingly busy with other projects. Suzie and I are sad to see her go.

Our challenge on This Thursday this week is "Colour is my obsession" which is a quote by Monet. You can work in your favorite colours. or colour. Or just use loads of colour. We will also except entries inspired by Monet

The prize is 10 digital collage sheets from our sponsor Lisas Altered art She has some really useful and unusual collage sheets

So here are my entries for this week all using Lisas images and phrase sheets


I used this collage image from one of the collage sheets. I lifted the colour of the clothes and created a background . I used one of the free doodle overlay downloads from one of This Thursdays free downloads. I love the phrases on Lisas sheets and I loved this balanced diet one.

This says. "Sometimes in a world so big I feel so small" I used Urban Rhapsody papers. I triple inked the edges, Starting with light pink quite deep. Then A distress ink pad in orange then a dark blue just around the edge . I also doodleed inside the florish just to give a bit more definition .


Finally my favorite peice that I have made this week , and certainly the one that took the most time



This is a gel medium paper that I made for the background. The 1st gel layer 1misted with blue and green glimmer mists and left to dry. Then the next layer had glittered ribbon inlayed and when it dried I added gold paint with bubble wrap. I also added some red acrylic ink and some plain ribbon. The final layer has purple, gold. green and a rust red glitter in various places. Which dosn't show up in the photo. I adored this little girl on the collage sheet she looks so delicate . The beaded braid came from dunhelm mill. I bought every colour they had last year , this is only the second time I have used some but it finished this so well.. This peice was inspired by two regular entrants to This thursdays challenge Barbara, and well I can't tell you who the other one is as she will be our new guest designer next week . But I love all her work and we are really pleased that she is joining our team .

Love all your pieces. The hanger is really stunning.

Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind words. The green art piece in the museum is made from mulberry paper, drawn and painted on and than pieces cut out. It looks very organic, I liked it a lot. The hanging pieces are all made by Nikki van Es.
