15 Minute Challenge

Because I so enjoyed setting a 15 minute time limit for my artwork, I thought it would be fun to see what everyone else can come up with in 15 minutes.

So, set your timer and get going....the heat gun really comes into play with this if you are using paint, gel medium etc. Make sure you have your computer running and that you don't stop to think too much about what you are doing. Leave a comment with a link to you blog with a post/photo by Monday 28th May.

Just make sure your piece is dry before putting it on the scanner bed. lol.

Up for grabs an unmounted stamp by Crafty Individuals.

Wednesday Stamper - Fleur de Lis

When I saw the theme for Wednesday Stamper was Fleur de Lis, I couldn't resist putting something together. But what? So I set myself a 15 minute challenege. Create something in 15 minutes or bust! It was so great to challenge myself, limiting myself to a certain amount of time limited the amount of time spent procrastinating about what to stamp, colour to paint with, image to use etc.

This piece has now gone off to a new home, that of my close friend Lisa H (Happy Birthday Lisa!).


20 years ago today, my Dad was killed in a car accident. I simply can not believe that it has been 20 yrs! I certainly don't feel that so much time has passed. I will go and visit Dad today. This is something that I haven't done in years. I don't feel the need to to visit Dad's grave, not even on his birthday (March 20th - my wedding anniversary) or on Father's Day.

My Dad is always with me, by my side, watching over me. He is a part of me, intwined with my soul, is his.

I love you Dad, I miss you all the time. I cannot allow myself to dwell on things I can't change but sometimes the pain of lossing you is too much and I must allow myself a moment to grieve once again.
