O for Omnibus

We have reached the O page in our A-Z journal and the challenge was to be outrageous !!! So what is more outrageous than a flying butterfly bus clone ??!! I just loved playing with this one, got out my favourite watercolour wax crayons to make the background and sky line, found a nice red bus in Google images and in my collection of images a nice butterfly to cut the wings of( hehehe ! )
My Hubby actually loved this and said it could be the next Flaming Lips album cover ! For me that is a huge compliment as I LOVE the Lips !!

N for Nursing

The N page for my A-Z journal was for Nurses, well they had to come into it somewhere as I used to be one. I found this wonderful image I just had to use but struggled a bit with the needles challenge. In fact this is mark 2 as I totally ruined the first one when I tried to machine round the outside, so I just settled for the pin pricking I did along the top of the mount ( don't look too closely its not that hot ) and a bit of a cheat but the lace must of been made by a needle ?????!!!!!

perr ATC

This week there is an open theme for my Google groups ATC mingle so anything goes, here is mine

Sky scraper ATC

This weeks challenge on TMTATC was architecture. I just love the retro look of the skyscrapers in New York that were built in the early 1900's and so chose the Empire State to use this week. Thanks to TMTATC I can use the German instructions to get ready for the new term for my German course. I always check though that I've got the right end of the stick though !!!
