First venture into mixed media!!

Hi All

Whilst in the creative swing I thought I'd have a go at a mixed media canvas.  it seems that I have ended up with a pile of wooden shapes and not a clue what to do with them, so after some googling as to what mixed media actually was - I came up wit this!!! now I know there are much nicer examples out there but for a first go I was rather chuffed!

The wooden shapes are from Splodgeaway and if you can see the clouds in the background that was from one of their masks too!  I am now covered in ink and glue - what a happy girl am I!!

Oh what next to attack! I just watched a video on an altered bottle hmmmm
watch this space :)

have fun everyone

Playing with a chair!


We have bought a new dining room set :) our old one is definitely past it.  So, as the chairs were going to be scrapped anyway I thought I could have a play and see where I ended up. Bearing in mind I don't really have a clue what I'm doing I was quite pleased!

this is a before and after

Lavina goes Summery


This months challenge for Lavinia Stamps is Summer Colours, bright is not usually my thing but with these stamps anything is possible.

Here is my first go -

but then one of the other teamies challenged me to go even brighter - well a dare is a dare!! Put your sunnies on!

These last few days have been manic sorting out for our 25th anniversary party on Saturday, but I think we are finally there - I made a load of bunting but it is not the most exciting thing to do! I have also been playing with lights on the tables, hopefully I will blog some pictures if you want to have a look!.
