Helloooo my lovely blogging friends! Today I have three things for you!

Firstly its my entry for the Something Completely Different challenge. As its a new month the criteria has changed to POSTCARDS. This is much larger than we have been working with but its still a lovely size!!! The theme this week is FACES. Now I did struggle with this as I have no face stamps to get all arty with :( When I was doing Art at school I loved sketching faces and always fancied sketching an old man as thier faces are so full of character. Leonardo da Vinci's sketches are stunning so I have chosen him for my muse. Of course he invented Mona so he is a
sort of Tim Holtz of his day hahahahaha

So this is a self portrait of the great man himself. I got the image from the net.

The other two pics are of sneaky peeks of thing to come on my blog & elsewhere tomorrow hehe!!! Do pop over to check them out tomorrow night!

Thank you all for taking a look today, have a wonderful weekend XXX
