Well I'm finally beginning to feel normal (I know it's subjective but I base it on the fact that I feel healthier, not completely healthy in a I'm ready to run a marathon but healthy enough to feel able to do something apart from sit on the sofa like a consumptive Austen heroine).
So back to work, back to the battles over my malfunctioning car (I'm at the garage so often I have my own parking space) and back to the creativity.
I do like reading the challenge bogs and on occasion take part if I can meet the deadline or am inspired enough by the theme. I was going to enter this one, but guess what - missed the deadline as I spent too long faffing.
Colour scheme was based around sand, pomegranate and lilac paints.
Inside the frame I embossed some cream card in a polka dot folder and rubbed over with some Old Paper DI. Some purple metal was cut with a PaperArtsy die and embossed in a Tim Holtz folder to give a different spot effect. Then lightly sanded, black paint swiped on and then off to age a bit. I then cut in half, well three quarters to be exact and glued on top of the polka dot card.
