Garden fairies are for the current swap over at the Artist Trading Club.
Birds of a feather is a one-off, the only thing that came out of the doodle challenge.


A couple of time related pieces here. The first is one of my "Time" coasters for the March swap over at the Cubby Hole. I'm not so sure I'll be enjoying this month's swap though....

The second piece comes from yesterday's Art Journal workshop at the Cubby Hole. As Sue Roddis is swaning off to pastures new, we have Sarah Anderson taking over the workshops and trying to keep us in order. After we'd prepared several pages with paints we had to try and finish at least one page before heading home. As I looked through an old Elfin diary for something to add to the page I found a planetary ephemeris, with the note that "All times are GMT".

I've been roped into doing another CJ by Palma (so I've roped in That Woman to keep me company).
The Journal is hosted by the Altered Gypsies, who are a friendly bunch of ladies - mostly on the other side of the pond. The theme of our journals is Raven, and this is my cover and first layout. There's a couple of additions to be made (such as binding holes) but the artwork is complete.
Hopefully I'll have the second layout in a day or two.

International Women's Day

This week's theme over at 4x4 Friday is International Women's Day (8th March) with guest designer Athena.

I must admit, my first reaction was Eeeek!, but then I remembered a song that I was introduced to by my youngest "Terror" by My Ruin. It may not sound like a good choice, but it's a very powerful song, and the words on the 4x4 are extracts from the lyrics.
