another two in a day

Another day away from work and I managed to rustle up another two Los inspired by things I'd saved over the last two weeks
our first trip on the London eye- we have since had three more
this weekend was spent searching for Wenlocks and Mandevilles all over London- the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic mascots- this was my three with one of the 23 we found

american crafts-

Anothe failed attempt at the American crafts design team- admittedly I was a bit last minute getting this ready but I tried

I'm not so good at the project/card element. This was an attempt at a piece of decoration :( 
I have since cut it up and re-used the circles for a design team piece of work that will appear here later in the week
I quite like my card
LO one is a photo of the pod on the London Eye my children were in while I stood on terra firma
LO two- anothe LO of our trip to London and seeing the Queen

getting brave

this Lo is for the latest challenge at Sarah's Cards
I used a couple of Jillibean Soup journalling cards and a Hipstamatic photo of Arthur on the London Eye
its called "Getting Brave" because he was petrified at first but started to enjoy it in the end- even going on a second time  when I bottled out
this is the sketch

this is a close up

carry me home

Scrap it with a Song have a new challenge- We are Young byFun.

I took the line "carry me home" for the inspiration for this LO. the picture is Stanley carrying his little sister. We weren't actually on the way home at this point but I'll take the artistic license.

The photo is from one of our walks on our recent holiday in France
this was my second attempt at the LO- I am much happier with this one

this was my first attempt at the LO and I really hated it -

water colour

the latest challenge is up at Child's play- this time it is water colour paints.

I loved the circles of colour so I used some bits from a failed project to make this LO- You can see the failed project if you scroll down a bit or look at the previous post

my Jubilee Year Art Work

I made this to go on the wall in my lounge. I bought a few job lots of the Machin style stamps from e-bay and stuck them down in a rainbow effect. I had so many stamps I made a second, slightly smaller one ( by about three rows) to go on the wall in my bedroom
