Evening folks. I thought once we got into the Summer Holidays the weeks would slow down a bit but no, it's Wednesday in the blink of an eye and time for WOYWW and another nosey around everyone's interesting and creative workspaces. Why not pop over to see Julia HERE and join in the fun.
I am sharing my dining table now with my little mate and fellow crafter DD. She is making a paper model of Neuschwanstein castle that her Dad found for her on the internet. We visited it last year for real so she's enjoying making it although there is a lot of fiddly cutting out.
I have just started an exploding box for my Aunt and Uncle's Golden Wedding Anniversary on Saturday. I sat and made the gold roses in front of the TV last night and am going to add some butterflies to them too. As I type it is much further on and just needs putting together so I may actually get it finished tonight. No coffee, frothy or otherwise on the table this week although the eagle eyed will spot my Jelly Babies.
Can you also spot the dragon game? I had a sort out of DD's wardrobe at the weekend and have a pile of baby things to go in the loft until we can decide what to do with them and this game was one of them. Of course they were all long lost treasures and need to be played with again. This is one of those that you push pegs in and try to avoid popping up the dragon.
Do you remember the start of my blue canvas the other week? Well, the finished thing was delivered to my Mum for her birthday last week so I can share it with you now.
I loved every minute of creating it and just kept playing until I was happy. I paint fushioned Sheena's lovely daisies using grey as the base coat rather than the pale blue. I like the shadow this gives.
They were then over sprayed with denim glimmer mist which also made the dye ink stamping underneath run, another accident I liked. I over stamped again mainly with bubble wrap and then traced on the word and painted it with Forest Moss Distress Ink.
Mum was delighted with her gift and has it hung in her new conservatory and I already have plans buzzing around for my next creation. I love this way of using the Paint Fusion stamps.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a good week. We are keeping our fingers crossed for some sunshine, so far all the week has given us is cloud.
