Good Morning, well it's finally completed Darcy's 52 word challenge (which was supposed to last one year - 2011) is finally complete and I'm going to attempt to upload a video of the entire book, problem is it's 3 minutes long so no idea if this will work!  Hey ho - won't know until I try.  A couple of things before you view, firstly I state I can't paint and I can't fact but I like messing and secondly I do have a rather strong broad Yorkshire accent - you've been warned.


  1. Love it, love it!!!!
    I shall now hear your voice in my head when you post on your blog & FB!!
    Wonderful book - my favourite page is the "Voyage" steampunk one (was it voyage or travel??).
    Well done on finishing the challenge.
    Hugs xx

  2. Virginia!!!!! You are a star :D That book is awesome....and you sound like me too lol. strange how quickly we get used to hearing american accents on vid isn't it :D XXX

  3. Don't you sound lovely!! It's great to hear your voice, and your accent is great :o)

    There's only one thing I'll have to disagree with - you CAN paint!!

    Your 52 words book is wonderful - all the different images, styles and interpretations of the words. Well done for finishing.


  4. Virginia - what a huge (and gorgeous) accomplishment! It was so nice to hear your voice! What I love most is your very modern - edgy style. When I discovered mixed media, I seemed to only see old fashioned/retro pieces (which I do love and appeals to me) but seeing the mod version is very strong and powerful. I love all your interpretations, and find the star pattern that keeps reappearing especially cool!

  5. WOW! actually WOW!WOW!WOW!

    You have created an amazing book, I hope you are really proud of it. Thankyou so much for sharing, I have been hoping that you would do a round up when finished.

    i love the style you developed, you can really see how it became more confident as you go thru the book.

  6. I must remember to watch this when I get home, I forgot last night - youtube is blocked at work.... will write it on my hand :)

  7. :( it just says this video is not available when I try to play it. Will have another go later

  8. it's still saying video not available. Not fair!
