Another two LO's done!! The first one is a sketch from Pencil lines by Debee Campos (Sweet Erin Claire) and the second one which I finished this afternoon is for the June challenge at white with 1 blog. (Blue Eyes) I think these challenges were just what I needed to get me into gear again. I certainly have missed my creative outlet over the last few months.
The White with 1 challenge was to use mainly white with one other colour (which was blue this month) and to add a paint technique. I used paint on my wooden mesh stamp and stamped onto the CS and also stamped onto the chipboard letters of the title for a different effect. I love this photo of Matthew taken while we were on holidays at Agnes Water in January. I altered the photo to focus on his beautiful blue eyes (pasting the B & W photo over the coloured photo and then using the eraser tool to rub out the eye area to bring the colour through to the top layer) I added blue sequins to the chipboard tree and scattered a few.
I am really happy with how the LO of Erin turned out using the Pencilline sketch. I have used no PP at all. I love using white backgrounds and B & W photo's and I think the colour of the flowers was just enough to make it pop.
Well the weekend is almost over and it is back to work tomorrow. Liam and Emma were home from Gladstone, it was good to spend some time with them. Of course I cried when they left to go home this afternoon, I am such sook!! I always cry when either Liam or Michael leave to go back to their own homes. I really miss them.
I suppose I should go and finish some housework and get dinner ready.

I would also like to wish my baby a Happy Birthday for yesterday........he is now 20 years old. OH how time flies, I don't know where the years have gone. We had our usual Monday night is "Fish Night" tea and Matthew helped Clinton blow out his candle (we used a tea light cause we didnt have a real birthday candle LOL) I left my purse at work so poor boy had to pay for his own birthday cake and the rest of the groceries!!! Happy Birthday Wink!! We love you!.
On a sad note, our community lost a young man in a car accident on the weekend. Such a tragic waste of a young life. Our thoughts go out to his family. RIP Mark.
