hey guys
well i said i would show you a the things iv been working on, or should i say playing at lol
a friend of mine gave me the idea for this one, so i made her one.
now i know nothing of harry potter having never seen or read any of the films or books so this was all done from pics on google. everything is made from paper, clay or cardboard.

this is the finished cabinet 

on the top shelf we have harrys letter of acceptance, some spell bottles, a map ( dont tknow the name of it) and a book,.these both open and are tiny replicas so as exact as i could get them.

on the middle shelf we have a history of magic book, a wand, a snitch, 
and some scrolls (which do open)

on the bottom is a spell cauldron and more scrolls 
monster book of monsters

sitting on top is a finding hat, and a dobbie? i have to say my sculpting leaves a lot to be desired but i did kind of fall in love with this odd little guy even if he is ugly lol .

then we have hedwig, this poor guy was finished and sat drying on the window ledge and my cat took a dislike to him! and i had to do a bit of a rescue on him....

and of course we had to have his broomstick.

the cabinet itself is made from cardboard saved from deliveries, accetat and the hinges are from tim holts grungboard, the keyhole i cut on my craft robo a few times and layered then it was all painted 
in acrylic paint, and finished with a couple of coats of varnish.

i hope you like it guys i had a lot of fun playing with this .

Hello my lovelies
well i am here today to tell you about the new
That Craft Place challenge

Anything goes

sponsored by 
All Dressed Up

here's mine

this little girl is so cute dont you think, im practicing a lot with my colouring, and loving it, still loads to learn and improve on but its so relaxing to just lose yourself in a  couple of hrs colouring, ( i just cannot get the hang of leaving white bits though !)

So it a simple mat and layer and the image topper which I coloured using spectrum noir pens and then the pencils on top, the pencils really do add depth and vibrant colour.
I added some of the fabulous flowers and a bit of bling both available from That Craft Place .

Now just a little side note to apologize for neglecting my blog somewhat of late, I had kind of lost confidence in my craft, iv given myself a bit of a talking to and as you can see I had a little play and changed my blog a little , made myself a new banner (quite pleased with myself).
So anyway iv been playing and have made a couple of things just for fun which I will share with you all over the next couple of days.

Now come on and get your entries in :)
