Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


When I just typed that, I thought of that movie “Princess Bride”! My Mom LOVED that movie and could watch it every day and laugh no matter what.

It is challenge time again at the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog. A new challenge starts on a Tuesday and ends on the following Monday.

This week’s challenge is to create a New Year’s themed project using one of Michelle’s images.

I’ve used the Fairy Bride in my card to give you some inspiration for the challenge. I colored her with Watercolor Crayons. I cut 2 slits on either side of her waist sash and put tulle through each one, hanging out the back where you can’t see it. I added a couple extra punched flowers and vines for a wrist corsage.
