I was busy…………. too busy to watch the Wedding…

 

Yep, mojo was happening….YAY!!!! I did 2 canvases…..

This canvas is 5 x 7in… and the background was actually a street map, then scraping of paint, stamping, doodling and a couple of rub ons….. I love it!!!

The finished canvas…

This canvas is 6 x 12in….. and started off with paper dress pattern for the background….. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do…. then as I walked into my scrap room I noticed an Alphabet stencil in the paper rack…… that gave me an idea…..

and everything came together ……

Can you see the number 2 in the background?

Well best get back to the routine…. oh and I need more paint brushes….hehehe

How did your Easter go?

Pretty ordinary here…. although I had 3 days off…. just all went too quickly.

I loved seeing my grandies… soooo cute….. we gave them PJ’s and a few Easter Eggs, which were promptly put in the fridge for later…LOL

I have finished another two SHE ART GIRLS…. and love how they turned out…..

WEEK 2 SHE ART GIRL…

24042011339

We learnt how to layer the dress….

 24042011338

24042011340

and I had these Sprites from Prima for ages, and with a bit of doodling, I love how they look now.

This canvas has an Angel….. I did this one JUST BECAUSE…. I felt like it..LOL

28042011343

28042011344

One of my favourite sayings…….

28042011345

I doodled the word love amongst the flowers….

28042011346

word ‘blissfull’ rub on down one side….

28042011347

a little title……. to me!!!!

as you can see, I am lovin’ this, and already working on another one…. not sure if I like it…. may just gesso over it and start again…. but…… I might not… I love no pressure…..

I have been thinking I’d like to do a canvas each for my grandies…. that would be FUN…..

Well must be going… I wanna get ‘messy’ again…

They say change is as good as a holiday…….

 

Finally have taken a couple of photos of my ‘scrap/sewing’ room….. that I wanted to change around…. (don’t ask me HOW many times I have, but hopefully this is how it will stay,,,, for a while anyway .. hehe)

14042011326

(sorry not the best pic).. I love how  can look outside the window overlooking the pond and garden….

14042011327

Looking back the other way, there are built in wardrobes on the left. I have had the bookshelf on the right for ages standing in the front entrance with nothing much in it, and stumbled on a friends blog with a book case similar….. “LIGHT BULB” moment!!! YAY!!

14042011324

It’s not looking very ‘pretty’…… perhaps one day I will get some nice funky boxes…… Having the bookshelf has for storing alphas, rub ons, photos, chipboard embellies…… oh the list goes on…. now I have more room to scrap on!

14042011325(I have newspaper on the desk atm, ready for my next project)

The office desk was actually in the Office , (I swapped the bulky computer desk I had in my room, because I have a laptop now, I don’t need the computer desk)

The only problem is that I have to keep moving my laptop out the way to scrap….. a minor problem…… I am loving the space in here now, and when I get used to where everything is, I will love it even more…..

I am really excited about Christy Tomlinson’s She Art Class, which I thought started today, but I forgot I am on the OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD, hence I’m guessing it will be tomorrow before I can access the online class…Sad smile

Here is my White With One LO I finished yesterday.

10042011304

I mixed Olive green paint with water in a spray bottle and used a chipboard dragonfly as a mask, and also soaked some gauze in the paint as well… I love how that turned out! I’m not really loving the whole LO…. but at least I SCRAPPED!! SmileSmile

I have 2 more projects happening at the same time……

Have you been stalking me??????

Yes/NO?????

Well if you have, I’m sorry but I’ve been quite busy lately and haven’t had a chance to blog……

Last week end I was so enthused and started 2 Challenges from the Chat With Charm Forum and then all week has been a blur of early morning starts at work, visiting Charm, and I got hold of our computer guy on Monday afternoon, picked up our ‘broken’ desktop computer, found out what was wrong by 10pm that night!!! A fan had burnt out and melted over the graphics card….. I bought a new graphics card the next day and it was fixed by 1pm……!!!!!!!!

now that is AWESOME…….. except I wanted to change my scraproom and office tables/desks and put a bookshelf in my scrap room…. and it had to be done before he dropped the computer back!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAggghhhhhh……….. so I just threw stuff everywhere…. computer cords and desks and draws went flying……  anyway, long story short… all done, comp fixed, rooms finished!!!! I am now sitting here with a BIG desk so I can scrap with no crap on the desk…. Love the bookshelf…… I still want to get some funky storage boxes to put in it, and I still have a few bits to find a home for.

I’ll take some photos when it is all finished…

Yesterday I went shopping and bought a new door mat for the front door…

09042011303

DON’T YA LOVE IT?   LOL

It’s now Sunday afternoon….. I kinda got side tracked and didn’t finish the blog from yesterday…..

I have been scrapping, albeit very slow, only one page WW1, it’s OK, but probably went off track a bit. Confused smile

I’m really looking forward to doing the SHE ART Class starting Monday….. Open-mouthed smile… love paints, inks, and grunge!!!! See how I go….

well, must go and start the next challenge… hmmmm 123 Challenge I think…. Catchya!

I will blog again real soon, have some exciting news to tell you and an awesome Give Away to tell you about!!
