CC #8 The Secret Garden



"I feel good...nah nah nah nah nah na...you know the way that I should....so good... Whoo!" Ok, that's just a little James Brown for ya cause I feel all better and ready to rock the studio again. I have the best kinesiologist/chiropractor in the world...seriously. He's kept me walking and moving for years and I dedicate this weeks post to Doctor B. ! Not only do we laugh way too hard sometimes but he lets me take pictures of his amazing tie collection for inspiration. :)

Anyway...I had so much fun making this piece from Linda's Compendium Of Curiosities challenge today. I usually do it on Monday but Thursday it is. You should read TH's book..page 39 and have some fun. It involves ink and grunge. What's not to love? And I did a bit of organizing. I made labels for each ink I used and a chart of how they look on grunge too. I'm just too proud of myself tonight for getting a bit of organizing in with the fun stuff......LOL!

I love your secret garden. The flowers are fantastic! I organize when I can't create and then when my muse returns I mess it all up again. Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words. Your dresses are very cool! 3 cheers for Dr.B!

I love your assortment of flowers, really funky and colourful too!

Those distress inks are much easier to use now aren't they.

Glad you're feeling much better too!

I really like the patterns on each of the flowers, you can look at the garden for awhile and continue to see new things. Love it thanks!
