Brighter than Bright!!


So between the sniffles and the snuffles I've found time to play.  Linda's second technique involved using the portfolio pastels, which I just happened to pick up whilst in Utah.  Linda created a journal page, but as you'll know by now, I don't do journalling, so I used the same techniques but on the old faithful, a tag.

To see how it was done and to join in the fun, hop over to the PaperArtsy blog.  

I've also just stumbled across a new challenge site over at Country View Crafts courtesy of looking on Julia's blog - thanks Julia.  So I am also entering my tag as their first challenge theme is 'pick n mix' and lots of things have definitely been picked and mixed on this tag!!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
