V IS FOR.....




V is for Victoriana over at inchy challenge blog - we're nearly at the end of the alphabet and a big thank you to all my ladies who have stayed with me from A-Z! A mean feat.





I've been toying with the idea of finishing the blog after the alphabet challenge but then.....what else would I do on a Monday morning and I've been inspired by what the ladies have come up with for the alphabet challenge and its given me an idea for a new challenge - slightly different to what else is out there in blog land. If you nip over to inchy challenge blog - you will see I'm running a little competition - why not join in?




On a different note - I've had another dose of Jane Austen this week - whilst wandering around my local Oxfam shop getting some holiday reading books - I came across a hard back book of Sense and Sensibility, the Film for which Emma Thompson wrote the screenplay and starred in. The book had all the screenplay in it - it still had some still photographs of all the main characters and it also had Emma's diaries of the weeks shooting the film. A fascinating insight to what it takes to make a film.

I've joined in with a couple of challenges today and hopefully one piece will do all.
Mixed Media Monday wanted us to use something "Borrowed" on our piece - I have borrowed the inchy of Mona which I received in an inchy swap.
Theme Thursday want us to use "Torn paper" on our piece - I have even laid the torn paper on mulberry paper which is the paper I usually tear but for this piece I've left it whole.
Think Monday Think ATC have the theme of Mona Lisa and here we have two for the price of one.

Very neatly done Fi!! Yes, I re-use practically everything, but it takes the fun out of buying new supplies!

Fiona, this is great Mona art. I love anything with newsprint, and it was a brilliant idea to use the inchie in your piece!

I really enjoyed the movie (as well as Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth), though have yet to read any Austen books.
