Happy Friday all!

The project I am currently working on at the museum requires me to research a lot of different things, including different materials that objects are constructed from.There has been some on-going humour regarding bamboo from Papua New Guinea which has developed between my curator and myself, and since her birthday is coming up next month, I couldn't resist this cute little panda digi from Sliekje. I'm sure she will be 'bamboozled' by it lol!

Paper: Bazzill white cardstock; 'noir et blanc' from merci; Arches 300gsm watercolour paper
Digital Image: Panda by sliekje
Punches/ Die: 'Victorian Oval' nesting die from mpress; scallop border punch by EK Success
Embellishment: 'White Opal' liquid pearls from Ranger; green organza ribbon from Victoria Spencer Ribbon Collection; white Signo pen; pearls, seed pearl and Mill Hill small bugle beads #72008

Please be sure to check out these wonderful blogs for details regarding the challenges, other entries, and ofcourse, inspiration!

Have a great weekend
