This is the "page" I have made for Gill ... entitled "Home".

It's based on a Google Earth map ... though that is a bit vague now ... made of silk and metallic fabrics, beads and cotton perle threads, with a few viscose/lace motifs.

A couple of times the kind people who have left comments for me have asked if the piccy could be a bit bigger ..... this one is, so is that better?

Another Artarazzi challenge, this time courtesy of Faye .. thank you.
Somehow I can never seem to get past Van Gogh when I see sunflowers ... maybe because he painted so many pictures of them!!!
I extracted some leaves and parts of the flower for this one .. added a shadow to give some depth and then ... well, then my silly side took over!!!!

It's that time again .. another challenge from http://artarazzi.blogspot.com/ this time from Kelly, thanks for the inspiration. The empty ladder immediately made me want to fill it ...though not climb it personally as I am scared stiff of heights!!!!
The legs are from my "this is interesting" stash and the shards of glass are homemade in PSE4.

Whoa ... these challenges come around sooooo fast!!! Or maybe I'm getting too slow?
This is another Artarazzi challenge ... "You Give Me Fever" - a modern miss in a very modern stance!!.
I made a porcelain doll costumed as Morgana La Fay .. with a very similar stance ...hence the Medieval take on this one. The emblems on her sleeves and the stars either side of alLure spell out L in semaphore ..thanks to the arm placement .. so that gave me the title and "feel" too.

Another week, another Artarazzi challenge ... entitled Moon.
I have added a halo to the moon, coloured and layered the child and written a little ditty to tell her tale.
Edited to show verse.
verse reads:-The moon looked sad and it seemed to me, that he would like some company, So I took the lantern and a candle, but dropped them both when I broke the handle, So now the moon is sad AND blue, and, like him, I feel that way too!

Time for another challenge from Artarazzi ... this one is a fingerprint!!

I was wondering what I could do, not getting very far and probably slightly day-dreaming when I started to see depth in the print. Isobars on weather maps? Contour lines on maps? A tunnel? !! yeah!

So here is my tunnell/hole - tree rings and all ... being explored by an intrepid team of ashbseilers.
