NOEL SISTERS...PPF

So, this is something that I did alittle while  ago and it was one of the very first ARTY sort of things I did since I was a kid. I used pigment pen and drew little images on cardstock then I used water colour, cut them out and created this scrapbook page of my sisters and I. I really loved it back then and I still love it now.I think I will do some more of this style because it;s something that I thoroughly enjoy. I have framed it in a black box frame and I put it up at Christmas...

I am linking this to ppf..I know it's sorta cheating but I consider this as when I sorta started getting arty again and wanted to share it with you all...thanks again for all your lovely encouraging words...i love them...




ok
until next time
lots of it

Gorgeous page.

Thanks so much for looking at the hooping video. It was not in front of our place. It was shot in Old Town Spring, a little shopping center. The shops are in old houses.
