When I was growing up I would have loved to have curls like my brother had, but no, I had to wait until I was older for those - just when I was growing my hair and I wanted it straight! To be honest it wasn't so much curls as waves but the frustration of trying to straighten it still remains in my memory!
For the most of my childhood my hairstyle was like these two TH Paperdolls girls - straight and cut into a fringe(bangs, I think if you are in the USA)
I recently made card using kraft card - I had forgotten how much I love kraft card and paper so I grabbed some scraps of Pears Cyclopaedia paper(Thanks Jo for reminding me!)that had already had a good ink spraying! I ripped them into smaller pieces and stuck them onto a partially gessoed page before adding more gesso!I then - and here I really got so involved I can't remember half of how this came together, but some masking, stamping, inking, more stamping with my new Paper Artsy Everything Art stamps(EEA06), stencilling using crackle paste, stamping onto some of hubby's old teabags, more stamping using a favourite text stamp - I definitely wasn't thinking 'less is more'!
I would like to enter at
Moo Mania and More where the theme is 'Hair'
Art Journal Journey where the theme chosen by Rosie is Circles - there are several if you look!
Craft Stamper Challenge - Take it Make it - Anything Goes
Fashionable Stamping Challenge 124 - where Avril has chosen the theme of 'Make It Feminine'
I'm pleased to report a slight improvement of the BPV I have been experiencing - the exercises are really working! I have managed to leave some comments on blogs here and there - apologies if I haven't visited yet - we went away for a couple of days and I am definitely on catch up!
Thanks for looking, Chris
