A Wee Hoose

Hi everyone…

Well my hanging up project was not ready..sigh … I have just given it another layer this morning and i need to wait for it to dry, then apply one more layer tonight, then i hope to be able to work on it tomorrow and hopefully share it then..

In the meantime, this wee mdf wooden hoose was sitting on the window ledge of my shed, so i painted it and decorated this instead..

I am going to a workshop this afternoon at Stampers Grove where I am going to learn how to draw faces!!.. i am looking forward to it, because I can’t Β draw worth a sook lol .. I will show you my faces later tonight when I blog them

Back to the wee hoose… a coat of lovely paint, some mica flakes, buttons and a spot of distress ink and it was done.

Ole’ Salty Dawg (It’s a Postcard!!)

I was watching Natasha (Enastasia) stream this afternoon and I made this as I crafted along with her πŸ™‚

It’s my very first attempt at doing an art journal page (of sorts) cause I don’t have an art journal book (yet)! Β  This was fun, I dont think I’d use timmy’s distress inks again as they tend to run when I applied some gel medium … guess i’ll need to invest in some archival ink!! Β …*** Edited to say that after watching Rachel’s live stream this is in fact a postcard!!) who’d have thought!***…

I have absolutely no idea where the inspiration came for this… I just went with the flow and this is the outcome… in fact, It kinda reminds me of my late dad, he was in the Navy and he used to smoke cigars (bless his wee soul), wonder if he was with me in spirit up in my craft workshop today πŸ˜‰
