Long time no post

It's ages since I last posted, been busy and still managed to do a bit of crafting.  A couple of years ago I signed up to do a Suzi Blu on line class but never managed to finish it.  I finally decided a few weeks ago that I would start again but couldn't find it on my computer, then suddenly realised that I'd put it on my external hard drive.  Went to find it there, then remembered that I'd deleted everything on the hard drive to start afresh, what a fool I am.  Anyway this week I've been playing with drawing faces again, but I still cannot get the eyes right.

All paints and sprays are Dylusions, dress cut out of a piece of 7 Gypsies paper.  If you look closely you can see when I painted in the eyes. nose and mouth, but they were awful, so went over with skintone paint from Dylusions which is on of Dy's new colours and is fantastic.  The writing says I'm giving up but since I made this, I've decided I might joint another course on how to draw faces because I'm not going to give up, lol.  I think my girl looks very sixties, in fact I remember Dusty Springfield having hair like this.

Art from the Heart's 10th birthday blog hop

Lots of exciting things happening at Art from the Heart next weekend where the big birthday bash is happening. Want to know more then do click here 

So in Celebration we are having 5 birthday blog hops.
You should have reached my blog from She and are on the Stampotique Team hop

here is my first project

I used Dylusion acrylic paints, then sprayed through stencils with Dylusion inks, I stamped  Stampotique Supergirl and Uncle Buck onto an old book page, added some circles and lines, bit of splodging with a paintbrush loaded with watered down acrylic paint, machine stitched around edges

Here's my second project

Background is the same as the first project and the sentiment is from Dylusions Say What you Mean

Before you move on - you will need to collect a letter from me which is K
This is part of an anagram of a Stampotique product
Once you get back to Dys blog please email your answer to Ben.

So after leaving me a comment you need to move on to
