I have missed creating things so I had a look at my usual challenge blogs to see the themes available. As usual, Hels over at Sunday Stampers has a lovely little challenge based on the theme of 'Words'. Dedicated to the sad passing of Robin Gibb - I so love the Bee Gees and would find it difficult to name a favourite track!! I like the idea of using words but don't have a great many stamps for this so have used some that I felt were appropriate and improvised with a little old book paper too.
Over at Artful Times, the challenge is to use some ribbon and lace. I love both of these elements but don't often use real lace in my craft work. This time I've dug out a little piece of white cotton lace, added some Distress Ink et voilà! A lovely challenge which allows a wide range of creating to take place.
Another challenge blog which I enjoy visiting is 'Shopping Our Stash Weekly'. I seem, like all of you out there, to have loads of 'stuff' in my collection which should be used up before buying anything else . . . . . . . . . it's so difficult when you NEED to buy that new Distress pad or Dylusion spray ink though isn't it. . . . . . . . ! The challenge here is anything floral related so I knew I had to join in as flowers are always something I enjoy using in my work.
So, here is what I've created in my new, lovely room:
