And breathe........

Phew, thank goodness for half term!  It's been a really busy week, but great fun.  We had Arts Week at school this week and we have packed in such a lot of fabulous activities.  The highlight of the week for me though was on Friday when we took the class to the library to see an exhibition by a local artist by the name of Fran Rogers who's gorgeous artwork absolutely blew me away.  Fran does the most gorgeous, gorgeous maps of local villages and lanes and I came away from there so full of inspiration.  She runs a class on Thursday afternoons apparently, which is fab because that's my afternoon off!!!  However, I've had to leave my number with her as she's fully booked at present! Argh!!  What she has done though is inspired me to get my pencil out again and draw, and, with the help of my Linda Ravenscroft "How to Draw Fairies" book I created this little beauty.  If you would like a copy of this image then please leave a comment and I will draw a couple of names next week!

Over at Keep it Simple this week our theme is Take a Bow (bow rhymes with No! LOL!) and here is my offering.  It's another of my Friendly Plastic scraps creations, moulded together using the lacework technique and cut to make the bauble shape.  The top of the bauble was just cut to shape and warmed to stick to the bauble.

Well that's my lot for now.  I have a number of gorgeous new images from Teri's Delicious Doodles to play with this week and I intend to make the most of my week off using her fab creations.  
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great Sunday!
