Challenges ....

..... Linda and Rosie have been issuing challenges these past two weeks and these are my responses .... a Matchbox Book. Rather finicky but great fun!!!!!

This was the first challenge. I used the water, acrylic paint and coarse salt technique on the paper. Yes I got messy and I thoroughly enjoyed myself making this, my first Shrine.

I did have hysterics trying to photograph these! We had sunshine but rather strong winds blowing and so if my photography is not up to scratch, it's because I'm a lousy photographer!
I cannot blame the wind or the sunshine!
Have a wonderful week!
Huge hugs and love to all and thank you to all who've sent encouraging e-mails and left lovely comments.

Thanks so much for your encouragement Chriss! The dragonfly was a die-cut from Brenda Walton K & Co that I 'dollied' up with Stickles, beads and sequins. I haven't found a dragonfly stamp as yet but am on the look out!
Thanks again for your kind words.

Oh how pretty! Well done indeed! I enjoy how you go ahead and stretch yourself beyond what you "think" you can do. It makes others of us brave.

You go, girl!
