Buried Treasure Blog Hop . . .

Hi everyone, today I`m excited to be taking part in
 " Buried Treasure "
 hosted annually by
 Seth Apter from The Altered Page.
For the last 4 years bloggers around the world have been digging deep into past blog posts to find hidden  little gems to re- post and share . . . it can be one or more of your favourites.
Everyone taking part with be listed with links on Seth`s blog . . . sooo grab a cuppa with me and check out some inspiring blogs today!
Thank you Seth for letting me take part!!!

I have a few favourites to share with you today -
 Altered mannequin back in March.
This was a project for the Get Altered challenge and eTeam picks challenge at eclectic Paperie and one that I enjoyed sooo much . . . burnt fingers and all . . . made from tissue paper and fabric.
I showed a sneek peek on my blog not so long ago in  April
 of my very first attempt at just letting go and not over thinking every step to creating a project -
Again this made me happy, messy and very paint splattered . . . bliss!!
This is how I feel about ART!
The last few months I have been trying to do what makes me happy in ART and trying not to worry what others will think or worrying will they like it - do what makes you happy!
If you know me you will know I love and adore very old books and using them for journaling,
here is one of my favourites of bygone memories with a pocket for hidden secrets back in August.
Covering blocks of wood in old book pages followed by inky/ painty goodness is a joy to do.
That house stamp is huuuuge and I LOOOVE IT!
I made this for the Susan K Weckesser design team, her stamps make my heart sing.
Lastly my first attempt at drawing She Art.
You can find the post HERE .

I hope you have enjoyed my journey into a few of my favourites and remember
Art is not a measure of skill but of Passion.

On looking over my past posts I can see how much I have changed and grown in being part of two brilliant design teams soooo thank you Kim Schofield and Susan K Weckesser for helping me along in the world of mixed media!!
