Hello all, Alison (a.k.a. butterfly) here from Words and Pictures, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be a guest here at Frilly and Funkie for Pamellia’s lovely Holiday Hues challenge. Frilly and Funkie was one of the very first challenge sites I discovered when I started this whole crafting game a few years ago, so it’s a real delight to be here.
My creativity never used to be on the visual side - I was more the words, music, books, theatre type. When I became a freelancer in Spring 2012 after eight years at the Royal Shakespeare Company as a Text and Voice Coach, it was supposed to give me more time for friends and family.
I had no idea that literally within days I would be in thrall to a whole new creative passion - stamps/inks/paints/texture/stencils... you name it, I want to play with it! There's so much to learn, discover and explore. Now I have to balance the two worlds - hence the name of my blog, Words and Pictures. So much for friends and family...
My blog is Words and Pictures - www.alisonbomber.blogspot.com
I’m also on Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/f1utterby69/
The Holiday Hues project I’ve created is a variation on one of my Christmas projects. We’re right in the middle of the 12 Days of Christmas, so I decided to stick with that as my holiday, and I’ve altered an old book in my own favourite Christmas colours... neutrals, whites and the essential holiday greenery. I hope you like it.
