I missed you..........

Well it has been so quiet over here at Whimsy Dreams hasnt it?..........so whilst I have had my nose into Eclispe for most of the time, I have been creating aswell I am so excited to share that I sold my very first pieces of Art over at ebay last week. What a great feeling that is....for me anyway. I have been lucky enough to take some wonderful workshops with JoAnna Pierotti from MossHill Studio....amazing workshops and JoAnna is such a great teacher so you must head over if you havent already.

A BIG Thankyou to my lovely friend Dawn she sent me some amazing tiny canvases last week, she knows I love anything like this. This pendant was inspired from 'Collage Mossy style' Workshop I took with JoAnna. Thanks for Inspiring me JoAnna.

Another Workshop...see I told you I had been busy.

I had so much fun with this workshop. My little bottle is 4" x 1", great size to work on. I love the smell of the beeswax so much fun to work with..I think I feel another addiction coming on.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

"Le Projet de Masque le plus Splendide et de Ventilateur"

I was recently involved in an amazing project over at PaperWhimsy hosted by the wonderful Gale Blair.
It is January 3, 1776, and Marie Antoinette, now the Dauphine of France, is soon to be on holiday in Nice. She plans to celebrate Le Carnaval and had commissioned her finest couturières to come up with an amazing masque and ventilateur in order to hide her identity. But, alas! The royal couturières have not come up with a design that pleases Her Majesty.It is now up to you... My dear Artistes Extraordinaire... to create the most magnificent, indeed, the most splendid mask and fan befitting The Dauphine of France...
I had so much fun with this project it was hard to decide a colour to chose but well it had to be pink for me......


I wanted to blog another ATC Block I have created. I love this little pieces of Art. All Images are from PaperWhimsy. I have various pieces of wood to alter so will share with you as I create. Thanks for stopping by, and leaving me such lovely comments it means so much to me.

Moss by Hilda Conkling

This is another Collage created for the quote Challenge at PaperWhimsy.

Moss by Hilda Conkling

Green velvet to look upon.

Shaped and woven of tiny trees

Soft velvet to make a pillow for the birds

Or flowers when they go to sleep,

Velvet rugs for the footsteps of the wind(Though he leaves no footprints behind him.)

I too have felt that softness:

I have heard the wind pass and return And stoop down to whisper

Among the trees of the moss-forest.
