Fly Me to the Moon

Salutations Bloggers .
Seems so long between posts. 
Although the month has flashed by ,
I have been able to fit in a few pieces of arty scrapy goodness to keep me sane ,
 oh and a rad retreat as well.
but first lets go back to my last post and the Gauche Moon challenge.
*see the post below for the moodboard. 
Here is my spin on it .
A faux leather journal .
You can head on over to Gauche to check out the process of turning 
cardstock into a leather like paper product .woot 
Of course , brown doesn't float my boat, so I went with a black and white .

 another layout using a photo from camp mojo.
no need to explain, im sure you get who i am :) 

I seem to be creating so much more with mixed media , an outdoor painting area was needed.
This table is definitely getting a good workout atm.( thanks P.C.)

A Little Country Charm

Last Months Gauche Alchemy challenge was a little out of my 
comfort zone .Country Charm is not my homeland for inspiration,
and the mood board at first threw me off,all that leather and Brooooown :(
But once I honed in on the smaller images I found my inspiration.
I started with some texture using an old plastic placemat and textured paste ,
 added some of the gorgeous turquoise and white paint, then some inca gold in silver to highlight those lush textured patterns .
Out came some natural materials,hessian,muslin,natural ribbon
 plus a few metal elements and this baby fell together . 

This months Gauche Alchemy Challenge invites you to the Moon.
What inspiration do you see when you view this "Lunar" mood board?
I see NO colour :):):):)  A real challenge! :) :) :) this will be fun .
Don't forget to pop over to Gauche to check out the Alchemists Lunar pieces,
Unveiling all month for all artists out there to be inspired.
