Can't sleep so will create to the wee hours of the morning, life is good.

Sketch Used
Source of Inspiration


At the moment it's still really hot in Sydney, I normally love the heat but because we have had so much of this weather I am looking forward to it cooling down. Yesterday I just couldn't sleep. I set myself up in the lounge room with the airconditioning, a glass of wine, put on my favourite radio station which was playing some fantastic music and crafted away to the wee hours of the morning, had a ball. I did get up extremely late today but all is good as its a Sunday and I could sleep in.

I have been seeing bird houses everywhere used on craft projects thats what gave me the idea for this card, I was especially inspired by Patti's card over at TPV. Planning to use their sketch for my next card. I cut out the bird houses, stems and leaves and created this scene. I used twine to give the look of  attaching the little houses to the stems, it was alot easier to adhere the twine than what I thought it would be. As usual I used foam squares to give the houses dimension, because this is a side on view of the card you can sort off see the foam squares in the photo, this is not the case when looking at the card front on. I have a few more ideas of projects with bird houses, looking forward to making them in the near future. I am definitely on a roll at the moment and enjoying every minute of it. As the title of my blog says "imagine, create, express" and I am certainly doing this and hopefully will stay motivated from now on.

The challenges I have included-
Sketch-s'Sketches
Source of inspiration-Wee Memories.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and doing something enjoyable. Thanks again for visiting, I really appreciate the time you have spent here.
