Creativity Boot Camp - Day 4

I'm a bit late in posting today, my friend came for dinner so it would have been rude for me to make her wait. So todays prompt was heavy metal. I immediatly thought of this:
 I pass this wall sculpture every day on the way home from work. So today I took my camera into work so that I could stop and photograph it on my way home. I work in Sheffield, world famous for its steel. Unfortunatly the steel works have been closing down, but there is still plenty around to remind everybody. At Christmas he has lights on him and is lit up for the festive period.
When I got to work a couple of the girls are now asking me what the prompt is for the day, when I told them and said what I intended to do, they told me of another place. It is just at the bottom of the road where we work and is part of the rejuvenating of the river. I'm not from Sheffield so had no idea what they were talking about. At lunchtime Vicky took me to the bridge and this is what I saw.
Here is one of the lights on the ceiling how cool is it?
I have no idea which photo I like best, I've got piles from this bridge but couldn't possible post them all . I have the next couple of days off work so I can hopefully manage some photos in better light. This is one of my challenges with this project, the light. I can't take them until after work and the summer disappeared last weekend, so poor light is one of my issues.

Your photos from that bridge are amazing, such interesting intersecting lines, and I love that spider-light!

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Lost Contact

I've had no telephone or broadband since I last posted, isn't it amazing how we become so used to something then when it's taken away we can't live without it. I had made a few pages and cards to post but then no broadband. AAAGH! Anyway a lovely man came out today and it's all fixed, that nasty jack frost had caused the wires to break, fortunately it was outside or it would have cost me money. I spent my time wisely, I purged and organised. I've only had my craft room for 10 months and OMG what a mess. I have so much rubbish that I bought thinking it was a great bargain and haven't used,like cheap glitter glue coming out of my ears. I have every colour of Stickles that I love and always use, so why did I waste money on cheap stuff, anyway no more its gone. (Well actually its laying at the top of the stairs waiting to be boxed up and given away.) I've also outed a pile of punches, I don't need them now that I have my beloved Cricut, why oh why did …

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
