thnings with wings

Good day, 

I am so proud of this canvas, it sits on the living room wall all shiney and poffy and dare I say a bit smug. I am entering it in the current TIOT challenge, which is things with wings. I would love to see what you come up this so let rip!

Blog Hop -found or recycled


This dangerous felon (stumpie grumpie) is entering the Smeared and Smudged blog hop. His cell is made from steel (or a mini ceral box) which is painted in anti grumpie paint so that he does not escape to ravage the world with Grumpie disaproval.

Only approach his cell if you can stand the ardent grumpiness.......

Do have a look at my have a look at my other hoppers, they have made some spine tingling awesome stuff.

Dearest Minions,

one of my all time favourite monster munch movies is Jaws; I like the first 3 movies and do not mention the fourth film as it was rubbish. Here is my card for the current TIOT challenge one for the boys. I used a tiny fisherman from, erm not sure, picked it up at a craft fair and a beautiful stamp from paper artsy which is normally a fossil, but add a small dot for an eye and it comes to life.

Unfortunately the same does not apply to museum specimens, the staff get really cross when you try and bring dinosaurs back to life.  The quote was added with two types of pegg letter stamps.

The back ground was created with water and distress inks, I then added more shading with a water colour pencil to create a horizion.

I am also setting this loose on:
Eclectic Ellapu - for a bloke
less is more -bedroom colours (blue and white) and of course dangerous fish!
