OUAT Challenge: Favorite Actor

OMG you expect me to choose just one!!!!
There is no way that I can pick just one
of these amazing men!

First an foremost: Robert Carlyle as Rumpelstiltskin
I abso adore everything about his performance
but most especially, his giggle and a dearie!

Michael Raymond-James as Baelfire
There is something about the little boy
lost that I just adore.
He shows overcoming all obstacles to get what you want,
even if it's not exactly legal.

Can't forget Colin O'Donoghue as Captain Hook
Does it get any sexier than a leather clad pirate?

But my all time personal favorite
(even though he's been MIA for the longest time ever)

Sebastian Stan as Jefferson is the epitome of what is sexy!
Yep, a touch of madness & a desire to make things right.
I just wish he would return!

OUAT Challenge: Favorite Episodes

Season 1: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

This episode is one of those double edge ones
I adore this one because Graham
got his memory back, I despise it because
Graham got his memory back & the Evil Queen
killed the Huntsman because he was no longer her
wolf to call.

Season 2: Manhattan

I just love finding out that I'm right,
from the moment that it was revealed that
Gold's son was in the present day I was
predicting he was Henry's father.
This picture is Priceless!

Season 3: New York City Serenade

What's not to love about the sexy pirate coming back
give Emma her memories!
Just one question, where did the potion come from?

There is always the garden...

This entry was for a challenge in the Art Journal group on Facebook for the 1000 member mark :) The challenge: create an entry using the phrase When all else wearies and ceases to satisfy...There is always the garden.

This spread started out with a background I had already done with the Dylusions spray ink (which means no working directly on the page)

I printed out the fairy (paper doll from a file my sister sent me) on plain white card stock, colored her in with the flesh tone oil pastels & doodled little swirlies on her arms & legs with a Sakura pen in green. Because I wanted her to sparkle (cause all fairies do) I used the same green pen to do her lips, eyes, & ears. Then used a Sakura glaze pen in yellow for her hair. Her outfit & wings was colored in with Sakura pens for the pop. I cut out all the pieces and glued everything together using the fine line pen.

On the left over cardstock paper, I drew out the roses. First I colored them all in using the Martha Stewart markers, next step was to go over the lines with a charcoal pencil & smudge them up a bit (it makes them look more real) and added the oil pastels to various places to give it more of a 3D look. The hardest part of the whole layout was cutting the roses out. ARGH!!!! I thought I would go crazy.

I applied the flowers to the right hand side of the page with the glue pen.

Hand wrote the challenge phrase in the Bic Mark It, added some extra details with the Marvy 1122 fine side.

I added the Fairy to the left hand side with the glue pen & called it done. LOL.

OUAT Challenge: Favorite Outfit

 My favorite outfits have got to be the Evil Queens! 
Regina just totally rocks these amazing looks.

My favorite male outfit has got to be Hook, this look
is just oh so yummy! I totally want to get
a similar outfit for my BF!

OUAT Challenge: Good or Evil

Oh yeah, this says it all!

Actually I'm almost totally neutral, so I could go either way.
I see the benefits from being both good & evil.
