whispers from the wall...at the grand ball

...Lady Charlotte watched the couples dance from the side of the ballroom, they waltzed with ease around the room, often changing partners. The room was a magnificent sight with velvet curtains, a grand orchestra on a golden stage, grand glittering chandeliers, ornate framed mirrors, oil paintings of the masters and the most beautiful ballgowns she had ever seen.
She also hoped it would only be a matter of moments before he noticed her, the Count was enjoying dancing with a elegant red head in a strapless full green gown. Tonight was the night that she would make him hers! She knew that he would finally see that she was the only real grand masterpiece in the entire room...

A Mixed Media Collage by the Butterfly Collector. I used lots of things that had been lying around begging to be used for this piece including stamps, fine glitter, ripped papers ( I love ripping paper for my art ) mount board,feathers, fabric, ribbon, threaded beads, paint and pencil.
I have been very inspired today by heather's post about the candy store she possess for a work room. Beautiful colours, jars, fabrics and great ideas, I think it's time for a clean up around here in see through storage so I know where everything is!

it's really hard to work around the bub, I try to do stuff at night when he's asleep, today I gave him his own brush and paint and we have a lovely new masterpiece on the fridge!!! I have to watch him like a hawk though, because now we have paint on the table and his good jumper!!!
