WOYWW???? ........par inspiré

~Happy Wednesday all,

~Can you believe it's WOYWW again???? This past week has flown by again... in a flood of busyness. The theatre last Wednesday was great, I really enjoyed the show. And well the rest of this week has just been oh so busy, and it's not getting any quieter!!!!!!

~Anyway this week is WOYWW's first anniversary - it's been going for a year, a whole year!!! I've only been doing this for a few months, and I have so much enjoyed my time and I loved making new friends. So Julia, challenged all of us to make a piece of art using the letters WOYWW and I came up with Morgan:
~What do you think?? Her official title is par inspiré WOYWW (or Inspired By WOYWW).... I used the fabulous papers by Graphic 45, Le Romantique. Ok so here are some close ups:
~She was totally just a wooden artist's mannequin just a week ago, give her some gold perfect pearls, like a TON of glue and some yummy papers....... and on Monday, Miss Morgan was complete. I'm so pleased with her, it makes me want to make a whole family!!!

~Obviously I'm still going to show you what is on my workdesk today...... as you can see Morgan is in her new place, beside Morph and Kirk. On my desk are some alcohol inks and some stazon inks....... I'm finishing a project for the Scrap Tiffany Recycled Blog Hop (this saturday), I've put the project in hiding for the purpose of this photo tho!!! NO SNEAKS!!!:

~And lastly, every week I get comments about how "creative" and "arty" my mat looks, so I thought I'd give you a close up of the worst affected area:

~Wow, messy huh??? Lots of stamped images, glue, paint, glimmer mist, and loads of ink!!! So there you have it!!
~Well that's me for today, make sure you pop down to yesterday's post and enter the fabby giveaway that my gorgeous fiance Jay has done for me!!!! I'll be back tomorrow with Creative Favourites.

~love, Vicki xxx

Your art doll is beyond beautiful. I'm totally in love with it. Puts my little doll to shame. The sentiment is perfect for the WOYWWAC, too! You are one seriously creative artist. Happy WOYWW.

I knew it - seriously I did..I knew that it would be a stunning WOYWWAC from you..OMGee she's fab. All the layers and shaping- just gorgeous; don't think I don't know how hard it is to find time to do this sort of project, you and Jay are soo busy with your real lives. Love it. Feel like you could do with a new mat now.

Love that doll so much, the little touches are all just perfect! And really enjoyed reading about Jay too. Her layouts are stunning in the feature you did. I am not much of a scrapper, more of an altered chick, but if I was I would come learn from you guys! So inspirational! Thx. Leandra

Jane said...

Wow she is FAB!!

angeleef said...

Oh! That doll looks amazing! You must really have a creative brain to come up with that!
I couldn't bear the idea of spilling some inks or other things on my mat, so good for you that you can think 'outside of the box'. Me? I need those boxes (cm squares) too much for cutting my papers, LOL.
