I really liked making this art doll and I've set myself up to make lots more - there are body parts all over my work table!
I will probably do some swaps with them soon - if anyone wants one! Just give me a week to make a selection of different ones.
The stamp is from the Lost Coast Flying Flower Girls set, but I've cut it up and changed it a bit.
I'm going away for a couple of days, so I'll be back with news on Thursday morning.
See you then!
Love Linda xx

Here are 3 similar backgrounds I made at the same time. I just used 2 colours; Lettuce and Stream. Hope to buy some more soon though! Thanks for the inspiration Karen.

I have used three of her famous quotes - there are loads more! On the one above I tried to replicate my icicle doll.
Bit radical this one - a landscape ATC (is that allowed?)
Thought I'd keep it simple for this one - I just love the photo.
The full quote for this is..... I never paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality. The quote becomes even more interesting if you look at some of her more bizarre paintings.
Well the DVD finally arrived this morning, so I'll tell you more when I've watched it.
Off now to take mum to the hospital to see dad.

The two below are a bit gothic, lol! Just wanted to try a night time background, but I'm not sure it worked. Oh well, I'll keep trying.If anyone wants to trade, let me know.
Yesterday was a non-celebratory day...my daughter failed her second driving test and was totally distraught. Its really hard to watch your child in distress. She has a car and starts a new job soon and really needs to be able to drive.
Anyway, we tried to put things into perspective and I helped her book another test. (An expensive day!!)
I'm off now to photograph my birdhouse ATCs - its time I put some pictures on this blog!

I've also finally cracked the gingham ATCs for Chriss's monthly swap! Its taken me ages to come up with an idea so I'm pleased I can still take part. Can't show those for a few weeks.
I feel I have to apologise for this next ATC (- my daughter was appalled when she saw it) but it had to be done. So thats it, I've got it off my chest. I can keep it above my work area and look at it whenever I like.
Off now to finish my new- style funky icicle doll.
I'll show you tomorrow.

Shame I didn't manage it - that would have been considerably better than being a teacher. Oh well... maybe there's still time.
Hope you're having a good weekend.
