Here I am at my 300th post, I can't believe it but it is true. How time has flown...
And the wonderful Val gave me this award...
I shall put some names at the end of this posting of some fabulous blogs (although it is hard restricting to just 2,3 or whatever - so I might just add a few names)
AS THIS IS MY 300TH POST I SHALL BE HAVING A GIVEWAY...LEAVE A COMMENT FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A LITTLE SOMETHING BY ME, DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WILL BE YET BUT I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THOSE WHO TAKE THE TIME TO VISIT MY BLOG. (I shall close comments for winning next week on the 8th April
Been a while since I last posted (well for me)so what have I been up to?
Little bits of this and that really. Interupted time in the art room; the reason being is that we have some work being done outside so I have been supplying the builders with tea and coffee. In between doing the usual household chores. We are STAYING here in our home of 20 years...I am so glad about that, so the intention is to spend some money on the house and see if we can get permission to extend - time and the planning office will tell us whether that is going to happen. To my mind staying put is the best option, Stuart has now come to realise that we can do things together now and in the future with the income we have - without the worries of a mortgage. Phew!
On the creating side of things I finally decided how I was going to display the WOWs we made on PW a while ago (another indication of time flying)
I bought some paints when I was on my art weekend, Ferro paint by a company called Viva. The beauty of this paint is that it has iron filings in it and is multifunctional i.e. can be used on paper,ceramic, wood, stone even plastic. The color I used on the tic tac toe frame was Iron and it made it look like old rusty iron.
I have been busy decorating easter eggs also to get out in the post...I am using a beautiful metallic paint, but you will see when I post pictures :-)
Let me think, what else? A few dresses were made for a banner swap over on Treasure Art Trends
I embossed the top using my cuttlebug and then painted and sprayed with glimmer mists. A metal buckle, some rick rack ribbon and there you have it.
Now back to the Blog Award
