Inspiration Avenue: Fly

This week Diane chose the theme "Fly" for the Inspiration Avenue weekly challenge. I had so much fun playing in my Houses Altered Book a couple of weeks ago, I thought I would do it again.



Now I'm not sure what a real housefly looks like (other than annoying) and I couldn't draw one if I did, but this is my interpretation. Paint, paper, Stickles (red flowers), and one black Zig pen were what I used this week to have a bit of fun in my AB.

I'm posting this a day early for me this week because I'm joining the "Where Bloggers Create" blog hop tomorrow (Friday).

You used red flowers to make this - wow, that is so brilliant. I love your tongue-in-cheek take on this.

Great housefly, much better looking than the real thing if you ask me. Love the saturated colors.

Ha, if only real houseflies were so whimsical and fun. We wouldn't have the heart to swat them!

This is magically whimsical! Great job! You are right--we were both thinking along the same lines.

BTW, Bleubeard looks a lot like my Bajji. They could pass for brothers.

Your housefly made me smile! I'd be happy to run into one of these any day, instead of the real thing!

Congratulations on winning the challenge. Your house fly is cuter than the house flies we have here in Southern Cal.
