Just Because..........

................... I could not sleep last night, lay in bed for an hour tossing and turning until in the end I could not take it anymore, I had been so tired all day too then when I decide to go to bed, PING I'm wide awake, why does that always happen.  Nothing more I could do so I decided to come into my craft room and have a quick play with some goodies.
I decided to make a little something for a few challenges,  My images has been stamped with DI ink broken china, a couple of washers added to the body and some Distress Stickles to the wings, but that does not show up too well on the picture.
I have cut my doll from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper stack and Bazzil card, added a little stamping to the body and again added washers and Stickles have been added to the edges of the wings.  The paper doll is from an old PSX template.   I am going to have another go at this doll tomorrow and make it really grungy.  With the addition of flowers and FLY that completes my piece of art in the middle of the night LOL.

I am going to enter this for the following challenges:-
Distress Stickles - Linda at Studio L3
Wings, Wings, Wings, - Stampotique Designers Challenge
Play Date Cafe Challenge for the colour template below.
Have a great day everyone, I am off to get ready to go to a workshop, cross fingers I don't fall asleep LOL, Tracy x x

Hi Tracy
I know all about not sleeping....when I can't sleep, I crave a room flooded with daylight.

I love your doll, (I wish I had one), and the other elements are fabulous in blue!

The seeds will be on there way soon and you can dream of sunflowers!!

I am struggling with this challenge, (PDCC), may be I am too tired to be inspired.

I've not seen anything done like this before, love the idea behind this.Works really well. I empathise with your lack of sleep, but I do think some great ideas come about in that tired out state.Thanks for joining us on Stampotique DC this week Tracy.

Totally rocked this piece, Tracy! Amazing what no sleep can do for you! lol!

Linda Ledbetter said...

Oh, I hate nights like that, and I know just what you mean-- tired all day, and then you can't sleep. Your insomnia sure did produce some wonderful art, though! This is an absolutely BRILLIANT design, Tracy. It's such a unique idea, and so perfectly crafted! You knocked this one out of the park!

Lynne Phelps said...

WOW, great job! I wish PSX was around so I could get my hands on this templat, it is FAB! You did a WONDERFUL job with it too! LOVE the washers, they look like jumbo eyelets, I might try them with a hole punched below, fake everyone out, LOL! Can't wait to see your grunged up version!

Lovely mix of images. Hope you stayed awake for your fun class. I have had students take a snooze especially when I am doing the teaching. :) Beautiful card and glad you joined us again at the PDCC this week.

Sorry you didn't have the best of sleeps Tracy, I know that feeling well. It worked for your creativity though, lovely piece of work! I really like all the washer detail and the little flowers you've done! Thanks for joining us this week at the PDCC!

Hi Tracy
I like your 'Steampunk'. The colours, I find very appealing. I have not tried it yet, but you have inspired me to have a go.
Just realised, haven't got any suitable stamps.
Never mind !
Hope you sleep well tonight.
Fingers crossed!
Best wishes
