Just Magnolia - Week #1

I did not think I would be entering the Just Magnolia challenge for quite a while........but thanks to a very very kind RAK I have managed it...............only just in time!!! So thank you........thank you..........thank you............it is the first challenge this week so was eager to have a go and I liked the look of the sketch by Donalda.

Me being me............I couldn't just have a complete stamped image...............and decided to chop my little lady in half............Oh! dear.........hope it did not hurt too much! LOL

Not whole without you
I coloured her with a mixture of Adirondack and DI's and added a touch of Adirondack acrylic straight from the bottle for the flower centres............I've used some of the papers I bought from Lyndsay available here, and I added a little row of stamped dots all around............I can't believe I had the original stamp so long...............never used.............until I took my life in my hands and cut it up.........and now I find the little dots really useful.............I added a couple of Maya Road flowers and the sentiment was my Studio G letters stamped onto a piece of watercolour paper and chopped up...........Note to self..........must get a few more of those if I can...........they were only 99p!!!

Thanks for looking...............................I'm only just in time with this so apologies for not leaving some love on all your blogs, I'll try harder next week.

  6. Hi - never thought of cutting an image in half!!! What a great idea.

    I only own two Magnolia stamps but if you would like me to send you a few stamped out images of them then just send me an email with your address. It is on my profile.
