The challenge this week is to create something with texture. I bought this fabulous little book and put on this image
and then added Golden Glass Beads gel for texture, I rubbed gold acrylic paint over it. I want to use this book for a deco that has the theme Vintage and so I am just waiting to post it off once the deco starts.
I shall start work inside and then see what others manage to do wit it....I find this so exciting!

I am doing general run around duties at the moment as my son broke his leg on Sunday playing football. He will be out of action for 6 - 12 weeks, he has been playing since he was 7 years old and this is his first major injury so he can't moan (though he does). I am sure he will be counting the days till he puts on his boots again.
Peace reigns in my house at the moment - why? well my darling daughter China has gone off to Hastings till Saturday and she is such a whirlwind that the house is quiet without her! Teenage girls + hormones + impending exams = a volatile mix!!!

Anyway that is it for this post.Thanks for looking.

Oh, this is stunning, Dawn. I made a little gasping sound when I saw it. The woman herself is so engaging and the glass beads around her give a dreamlike quality to her. Beautiful work, my dear Friend. Sure appreciate your lovely comments on my blog.
