Along with Elizabeth, Bevlea & Glenda( 3 Fat Ladies & 1), we have been getting together & creating a book to honour our familes, heritage etc.
We used Jen Crossleys lovely frames for the foundation of each page.
We cut, pasted, talked and sometimes swore our way through this challenge.
Numerous coffees, teas, food etc were consumed along the way.
The back of the book is a reliquary honouring my late Dad.
I am so thrilled with the results!!
Even though most of my family just doesn't 'get it' in relation to my art, my aim is to show this to them on Christmas day, when we are all together.
I'm hoping they will understand it & like it for what it is.
I will always remember  the great times I have had in the creation process with my beautiful, funny, irreverent  friends.
Below is the slideshow, let me know what you think, OK?

Now Fairies are not really 'my thing', but I decided to join in a 'reverse fairy canvas' swap on Paperarts Yahoo Group. I made this one for me, because I had purchased these little gates a long time ago, loved them, but, never had the chance to use them.
The decorations on top & the wings were made with great moulds I purchased from my favourite E Store, Wednesday Wishes.
I like the result, let me know what you think.

DH & I went to the Camberwell Market today.
Weather started off cool, then turned into a lovely sunny day.
I spent about $20 on these treasures, old folding ruler, 2 old tobacco/cigarette tins, old mini spirit level, some old metal 'things' old glass chandelier bits,tiny old padloock & my favourite, a cork topped glass vial of Hansens Junket Tablets!!
Love all my treasures, though DH thinks its just junk!

Finally, my 'Medieval, Gothic, Religious' City Scapes project is finished.
A departure from my usual 'Vintage' style, but, I am loving the change of direction in my arty attempts.
