V IS FOR.....

V is for Victoriana over at inchy challenge blog - we're nearly at the end of the alphabet and a big thank you to all my ladies who have stayed with me from A-Z! A mean feat.

I've been toying with the idea of finishing the blog after the alphabet challenge but then.....what else would I do on a Monday morning and I've been inspired by what the ladies have come up with for the alphabet challenge and its given me an idea for a new challenge - slightly different to what else is out there in blog land. If you nip over to inchy challenge blog - you will see I'm running a little competition - why not join in?

On a different note - I've had another dose of Jane Austen this week - whilst wandering around my local Oxfam shop getting some holiday reading books - I came across a hard back book of Sense and Sensibility, the Film for which Emma Thompson wrote the screenplay and starred in. The book had all the screenplay in it - it still had some still photographs of all the main characters and it also had Emma's diaries of the weeks shooting the film. A fascinating insight to what it takes to make a film.

I've joined in with a couple of challenges today and hopefully one piece will do all.
Mixed Media Monday wanted us to use something "Borrowed" on our piece - I have borrowed the inchy of Mona which I received in an inchy swap.
Theme Thursday want us to use "Torn paper" on our piece - I have even laid the torn paper on mulberry paper which is the paper I usually tear but for this piece I've left it whole.
Think Monday Think ATC have the theme of Mona Lisa and here we have two for the price of one.
