Welcome

Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

Art journalling and Dirty Scraps

Now I love a good challenge blog and I have LOTS bookmarked, and I have recently found another one! Dirty Scraps looks great and I have started playing along, this is for the challenge #4 which was "In your eyes" - scrap how someone else sees you.This fitted in well after last week. Several of my Mum's friends and my Dad say that when they look at me the see my Mum, not just my looks but how I speak and my mannerism's.

Also found several art journalling blogs with challenges and prompts. These first ones are from
Heart the art
WafflingFearSearchingSome random pages from various journals

P52 and The Studio

The current challenge on P52 was to do with Homes, dreams and 3d art. Well I started to do it and went off in another direction! Home always makes me think of "where the heart is" so that is what I went with. Base is an old 12inch record, gesso, music paper, paint and glimmer mist. Hanger from an old Bad girls kit. little houses are maya road. I made the roses from grunge paper al la Wendy Vecchi I really enjoyed making this.

Latest challenge on the Studio is to scrap a life changing event. for me that is losing Mum. I was inspired by one of Lisa's LO's and this is the result.
