Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Our House... in the middle of our street

You can't beat a Madness song!
and the lyrics fit in well with my young girl...

I remember way back then when everything was true
And we would have such a good time
Such a happy time, such a fine time
And I remember how we'd play, simply waste the day away
We'd say nothing would come between us two dreamers

On this page, I used some crafty notions spray paints that I received for a DT project a while ago, stunning colours but unfortunately the spray bottle was useless and didn't spray beyond one or two uses. So they have sat on my shelf unused which was a shame. So for this project I poured a little onto a palette and applied them using a baby wipe (again a Kate Crane tip!) 

I am entering this into TOFF challenge which was 'Houses' - along the path between the two houses it reads

Follow your own path for all art is valid.

Before I go..

Q. what is the first sign of Madness?
A. Suggs walking up your driveway...

ha ha always makes me laugh, but then I am easily pleased...


  1. Nicky this is gorgeous! P.s I thought everyone had slugs walking up their driveway!

  2. I didn't get the joke at all until I read whyducks comments...slugs........grrrrrrrrrrr
    Loving In the Middle of our Street, especially the wonderful colours. x

  3. Stunning as always Nicks. LOVE the colours! BIC xx

  4. Great page, sentiment and also joke-lol.I agree that Spray inks never seem to work -unless I decant them into a little bottle that I got with my Cosmic Shimmer Mica powders, which doesn't seem to clog so easily. I might try either Dylusions or Ranger sprays next as their products always seem to have great delivery systems, who Knows? xx

  5. What a beautiful piece! And the baby wipe tip...definitely going to have to try. I truly enjoyed my visit to your have found such inspiring quotes and your art work is fantastic! Thanks for playing with us @ TOFF!

    Stay fabulous :)

  6. Great work !
    love the song :0)

  7. Fantastic page...would love Suggs walking up my street :-D x
