I have had the pleasure of being the guest designer for 2 challenges at CRAFTS AND ME this month..... and the new challenge there is LACE.
Well i'm not the lacy type really but i knew exactly what i was gonna do.... i was given this lovely CELTIC ANGEL to work with..... (you can see her better in the pictures below.)
I am a member of the SMEARED INK DT and the challenge there this week is GOTHIC NEW BORN (i cant imagine which idiot picked that theme!!!..... Oh it was me!)..... Kapree on the team is expecting a Hallowe'en baby ( a little girl.....yay!).... and i wanted to do a 'welcome' canvas for the little one.
The canvas is 18''x 10''.... i painted it... stamped wire mesh on it..... added fabric mesh... black lace.... i coloured images with promarkers/ink and paint. I made flowers from paper, fabric and an old coke can... i used silk leaves and black plaslic ones i cut off an old head band of the lasses.

Theres chains, tassels, hearts, wings so much.... and i hand cut the name at the bottom.

I have no idea whose stamp the baby image is, but its adorable! The mesh stamp is from QUOTH THE RAVEN and the wings are cut from one of the FLYING HEART digi images both form smeared ink. The window is a freebie digi from the internet.

Please come and check out the challenge at CRAFTS AND ME..... and play along at SMUDGY ANTICS

i shall enter this mixed media canvas into the challenges below.... GOTHIC NEW BORN

 THINGS WITH WINGS....angel, and the baby is asleep on ravens wings. MYTHICAL CREATURES/FAIRYTALE.... angel... or maybe they exist? ABAC. ....this is a canvas.

 FOR SOMETHING NEW..... a baby not yet born.

Whilst i was away.... it seems soooo long ago now.... i thought i had auto posted my 1st guest piece for CRAFTS AND ME.... but because i am an idiot....see post below to confirm this!.... it didnt work.... so you can see it below.... its another wall piece.... i used the same angel, a DELICIOUS DOODLES celtic frame and cherry pie stamps for the scene i created.

I coloured it with promarkers and ink.

The challenge was to have a NUMBER on it.... 381.... 3x words 8x letters 1x meaning = i love you.

I triple heat embossed the numbers hearts and word in blue then stamped into them with chocolate brown.

I shall enter this into the challenges below......

Thanks for visiting me and getting to the end of this long post.
