Hi everybody. Another day has dawned, cold, wet and windy, I think I will be stopping home again today! Yesterday I finished 2 challenges, so have at least caught up a little bit. The first one is a Chipboard Album, which I have turned into my *home, sweet home* for the challenge over at *The Three Muses*. I got these albums ready cut some time back for very little money; an online shop was selling off all the chipboard albums, so I bought a large supply. The chipboard has been covered with small scraps of paper, splodged with remnants of paint, and then painted over with sparkly mod-podge to make it all more durable. I have used loads of other 'flying bits and bobs' to decorate it, including some old costume jewelry. The doggy with the bag on the front page belonged to me as a little girl, and the hat & watering-can brooch belonged to my mum. The 2 little Black Forest dolls were a present I got many, many years back. I like using old things in this way, it gives them a new lease of life. I have put a quote about home on each page. The bell in the tower used to be on a Xmas ornament. It was fun making it!
The second challenge is for Haunted House Design, who want to see a lurid or looming landscape. I did a spread in my journal, showing a haunted house, a bloody sky, and a graveyard. This was great fun to make; as you know, I love Halloween!
So, before I stop, I've got a good tip for you. If you want to heat up your soup, it works more quickly if the hot-plate is switched on. And a second tip while we're at it. Flat plates are not really good for soup. That's why people invented SOUP PLATES! Anyway, the cupboard door and floor have now been cleaned, and I enjoyed the fried noodles I made instead. Have a good day you all, take care (Believe me, I am the right one to tell you that!) and thanks for stopping by!
