Do you do the lottery?

No seriously, not the one with the balls, but the UK ART Lottery. Fancy being in the draw for a box of fantastic arty pieces? Then do go and have a look at the ts and cs.

The theme for the January lottery is 'Shiny' in honour of a brand spanking New Year, not that there's much sparkly about it from where I'm sitting!! Still, I have used everything shiny I can think of with metal, embossing powders, FP, glitter and a bit of bling to make this 4 x 4 hanger. The image of the magpie was copied from a photo, rendered into a line drawing and then tinted. The message reads 'I have a magpie mind, I love anything SHINY'. Hope that fits the bill.



The ACF challenge this week was to use a lovely picture of a little girl who looked like she was on her way to school. As I said in one of my previous posts I am going to use this challenge to make a 4 x 4 journal, a size I'm getting quite fond of. I used acrylics and stamping for the background plus some stamping and opaque permanent pens for the background. Additional images courtesy Flickr collage group. I felt it needed some words but 'inspire' was the best I could come up with. As I'm keeping this one for myself I may add to it if inspiration strikes (ha ha) before I make up the album. Any suggestions?



AND FINALLY.......

The piece of Mail Art featured in my last post is on its way to Babs in Oklahama. Hope it gets there in one piece! Thanks for playing Babs.

Ha! I always refer to myself as a magpie because I love anything that sparkles! This is a lovely piece. I hope you enjoy your journal. I've seen lots of lovely art journals and I'm slowly beginning to feel inspired by them. Just need to find an old book to hack up and turn into one, now!
