Words

Thursdays are so exciting cause that is when I find out what the challenge is at Just for Fun. The samples are always inspiring and this week Von has chosen 'Words' which meant my imagination could run wild lol.

We went to the carboot sale yesterday and I had this challenge in my head and ideas kept popping up. I saw the frame for 20p so that was a start. Then we bought a really big bunch of artificial flowers--some for the bathroom and some for the kitchen and some for me to use for crafting--all of them for only £1 :)

The leaves were from the bunch and I used them to decorate the frame. Now to the computer to make a piece of artwork to fit in the frame. I used a picture of me and messed about with effects to hide my wrinkles and made various things for the background. Then added the words 'Autumn of my Life' because the last couple of weeks I feel that is about where I am in my life.:( The words on the frame I have had for ages and didn't know what to do with them lol.

Bargains galore and what lucky finds for your artwork. I love your description "Autumn of You Life" - that's me too but I am so envious of your ability on the computer. Can you make my wrinkles disappear too please.
