A Little British Masterpiece

Hiya to you all in the land of blog

Today at work I had a massive spring clean, gosh what a difference this makes to an office, not sure what the rest of the team will think when they get in next but I love the space :)

I have been playing, not sure if I actually like the creation but adore the image but the creation is growing on me quickly.

I made a little portrait of Bella With Balloons using one of those little easels

look closely as the white shiny balloon has the reflections on of the shiny red and blue ones.
I just wanted to show off a Great British designer in it's simplest form in those fabulous celebratory colours. Not much else to say really.

If you want to see more of the collection or be inspired by others hop and see us on 
or in the 

As always, I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.

oh and just have to say my new web cam has arrived, so hopefully will be doing some colouring tutorials soon, after many requests, watch this space :)

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

LEJ - anything but a card
Papertake Weekly - True Colours
Sweet Stamps - Anything Goes
Desmet Designs - Red White and Blue
Penny Black and More - London Celebrates
CMC - Anything Goes
Drunken Stampers - One Layer

A nice idea the colour the balloons red, white and blue.
The image is so cute and I love the lace edge. It really sets it off, sitting it on the little easel too.
