Yeah its me.... i let the side down.... i am so far out of my comfort zone with this i need to get a train to take me back.... apparently i might be on the same train as Vee.... wonder what shes done?
 I am altering a huge(....yes for me its huge...)board book....its about 11inch square..... i did the cover and first two pages about 8mth ago.... but now want to get it finished for a very dear friend who loves Alice and Poe..... and i want her to know how special she is to me.
''LOVE IS WORTH MORE THAN THE CROCK OF GOLD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW'' at the end of my rainbow is a golden crock filled with love....something far more precious than gold or money.
 The images come from various places for this double page spread... including OCTOPODE. I've used promarkers to colour all the images... I've used paint, ink, sprays, stencils, stamps, rub-ons....and MORE.
I didnt have a rainbow image so drew this one with clouds. This old dragon has gone all soppy and mushy this time..... I hope you all have great fun visiting all the blogs on the list..... i'm now waiting for my train back to my comfort zone!!!!
I'd like to enter the following challenges....
I LOVE PROMARKERS CHALLENGE RIBBONS AND BOWS.... on my rainbow page i drew ribbons and bows at the end of the rainbow and the words 'true love' are done in drawn ribbon.
TWISTED TUESDAYS....SPRING LIKE/PLUS USE GREEN OR RECYCLE.... i've used green and the book is an old one of my lasses i'm altering.
Thanks for visiting me. BDx
