Paper mache Bowl

Hi everyone..

I have had a busy day up in my shed, I made a card, painted a bowl, recorded a video, made a snowflake out of pegs and tons of other wee bits n pieces

Here is the bowl I painted, i made a set of 3 bowls out of paper mache a few weeks back and this was the lone survivor so i gave it a few licks of paint πŸ™‚ .. although this one did split numerous times when I was releasing it off the bowl so it has a few staples holding it together!

I do love the paint job though and quite fancy trying this method out again on something else πŸ™‚


I painted it using the new quinacridone gold & the tinting base by Deco Art Media that I bought when I popped down to Dumfries last weekend to visit Helen’s new shop

Righty-ho that’s me done for the day, hope to make more stuff tomorrow as hubby is off up to the pond.

Thanks for popping round

My First Scrawlrbox

Hi everyone,

Something a little bit different from me today, I signed up recently for an art supplies subscription box and it arrived in the mail this morning πŸ™‚

Ever since I was a wee girl I have loved playing with pens and pencils and I don’t need any encouragement to buy them so this box is perfect for me and you recieve it straight through the letter box no need to sign for it

I recorded a wee video of the un boxing and think this will be a regular feature here on the blog each month πŸ™‚

As always, thanks for popping round
