ARTastic JUNE challenge...... WOOD you like to join in? And Our Beautiful World...

Take a peek at our ARTastic JUNE challenge  inspiration:
Luka Va ~ Bird King.
The criteria is to use WOOD veneer AND / OR BIRDS......I went with the wood.
Taa for the badge, Mitra. I also stayed with the blues & browns from the art piece as well...
 A die-cut-stamped-on-then-edged vellum ampersand.Phew!
 Bit of wood in the arrow, & the tape as well as the bg pp:
Up-cycled magnetic scrapbble tiles in faux wood for the title, which reads 'Heart of Gold & Then Some' in full.
And the allusion to that old song by whatshisname....Neil Young??? Well... it fits Jeff & the age group!
 Those blue seals I've had for YEARS. Almost tossed them - glad I didn't!
I've added a bit of subtle stamping - stars cos this bloke IS a star to the tossed aside and forgotten peeps in the world.
The numbers cos he does numerous good deeds without taking count....
 ...& the yellow is a touch of brightness, just like our artist has done!
I reckon this is an awesome ARTastic challenge! So easy to do, fun to join in with.....can't WAIT to take a peek at what you come up with!
Meanwhile, I thought I'd join in with
The prompt is 'lunch'.
Being a bit of a 'food porn' girl, I had plenty for this one!
MY dessert. Tom...get your finger OUTTA there!!!
Blessings, & as always ~ happy scrapping!
Lizzy ♥♥♥
PS: Who IS this bloke, you ask? My DH's son, Jeff :) And yes! I'd KILL for his hair!!!!


  1. OMG, such a sweet page! Glad you got some use out of that flair! Super cool photo! And yes, that is your treat! Better keep him away!

  2. Love the title and I love that song ! lucky you didn't throw the seals away, everything comes in handy eventually. Is that Sticky Date Pudding ? I made some and they turned out ! I keep (strangely forgetting I am not suppose to be having sugar, but after waking up lately with pins and needles in my hands me thinks I had better stop forgetting )

  3. Love the fun mix of patterns and textures on your page. :)
    And that is a yummy-looking dessert! :)

  4. Well, Lizzy, I was going to tell you how much I enjoyed your layout and enjoyed looking at the handsome young fellow being showcased, but then I saw a plate of the most delicious-looking dessert and all other visions fled my memory. It's just before bed and I'm on a sugar cleanse. You'd kill for Jeff's hair. I'd kill for that plate of food porn, you tease, you!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Well I hope you dont..... you know.. one day show up with his hair.. hehe.. but yes it is long and looks fabulous! Love the layout, blokey and great use of the criteria and painting.. and the pud looks yummo.. i am sure it did not last long on the plate.. and off we go into another week.....................
