my ' Ecclectic Mayhem'.....

Hi are you?.....I have been having  play around with some ideas I have had in my head for a while... I kinda like what I have made but it's not exactly what I had in mind.....I think I need some more supplies-  but what?.... I wasn't sure how to create what was in my head... because I wasn't sure really what I was doing...does that makes sense or am I just waffling!
... anyway he's what I created from the 'Ecclectic Mayhem' in my head.....I think that might be my new blog name!
firstly  I must say I don't do photo's of me.....I usually try to make sure that I have the camera....I printed this off on to some canvas and then used the colours of the paper to try and blend in the edges of the photo....hmm maybe I think my next  purchase should be some texture paste!....although the design papers didn't really need anything else I added some extra ink in places and slightly diffused the colour behing the photo and then really just went for it with some of my favourite things to embellish with....
all the additions I used have all been altered some hoe ...either with ink, paint , glitter, crackle glaze  just to mute them slightly.... although I love sparky glittery things I  am not  a bright and shiney blingy person!

well thank you if you are still I do appreciate you visiting me... any tips or techniques you thing I should have used or wether it's just something I did wrong please let me's been a few years since I did anything 'odd'....I'm enjoying the challenge

Make it Crafty ... Guest Designer

Hi everyone.... Woohoo I have been asked by the fabulous Zoe and her fantastic Make it Colourful  team to join them as a guest designer for the new challenge......and  how could I refuse I just love all their work and the inspiration I get from them.
The new theme up and running is Spring Colours.
I have used one of the new super gorgeous Gumnut flower girls available here....

 I layered the skirt up for a change, and I coloured using promarkers.
Please head over to the gallery and check out the gorgeous work from the girlies ......
Have fun and thanks for stopping by.
