All Washed Up!

If there's one thing I really like to do then it's beachcombing, I can't resist picking up all kinds of everything..... these are a few bits of driftwood from a previous foray, a long piece for the body and a lovely round bit for her head.

It's been a while since I've done The Three Muses challenge but this week it's Things with Wings........ and my little angel has very big wings!



They're cut with a Sizzix die... I really should be on commission from Sizzix considering how much I use their stuff!

Wow Effie, this is a seriously wonderful piece of art. Absolutely superb - especially as you have made it from bits and pieces you have picked up along the way. I love the sad little face which is so appealing. A standing ovation from me. Whoohoo.

(PS - we have another challenge opening next week Monday November 1 if you are interested. It is a simple one. Each week a one word theme will be posted and you can take it into your imagination and do whatever you like with it.
