Making Art Studio 490 style!

BFa1101

I was lucky enough to get Wendy Vecchi's book for Christmas ... a personally addressed signed copy no less ... yes I am bragging ... but the credit for the signing goes to my wonderful mate Andrea ... who I just love to bits!

The content of the book is pure magic.  Wendy has written the book very much in the style that she types her blog ... crammed full of inspiration ... ideas ... cool tricks and fabulous advice! I do LOVE that lady!

BFb1101This piece is inspired by an Anniversary card that she has demo'd ... very clearly ... in the book! It is my contribution to the Bubbly Scrumptious blog this week.

I have added a Timmy frame ... you know Tim ... the man that can create supernatural artistic objects with just an edge distresser and a solitary brad ... and filled it with crackle accents ... again ... this time on purpose :0)

I hope you are all having a good Monday whatever you are doing ... stay safe and warm.

Another one loving the birdie here :) That flower is so unusual too. Could you have gotten a more perfect Christmas present for you? I think not. What a fab mate you have there :) Not like my letter from Alice that came via my bf in a Christmas card from her... and Alice's writing is suspiciously similar to my best friends too. Hmmm.... Come to think of it... I never have seen them together...

That flower rocks! I love the way you've layered it up, it looks great. I need to play with my one tonight. I can't wait for Wendy's second book, the first one as you say is wonderful. I think you should write one of your own, though!
