Weekly Challenge #31 - Fairy Land

I've been absent from the challenge world for a bit but am slowly finding my way back.  Last week's challenge was to create a zentangle that a fariy would like to live in.  So with the swirly clouds above, the toadstools to hide under and the flower petals to sleep on here is my littel fairy world.

Keep tangling!!

Dill Pickle Walls = New Light Switch Plate

I always heard that painting your walls can do wonders for reviving and renewing your home, but seeing is believing!  I wish I had before and after pics to share but what a difference going from a deep dark blue that made our hall feel like a cave to a lovely light green better known as Dill Pickle.  So with the new paint came the opportunity to decorate and a new light switch plate was in order for the kitchen.  I had an old metal light switch plate that I covered with a sheet of polymer clay and baked.  Then came the alcohol inks which I had never used before to supply the background colors.  Then using a .05 Microperm pen I tangled away and I am pretty happy with the results.
