Play Day finished

Well, I have added my affirmations to my canvas made at Bevleas on Monday.
I am quite proud of it. Am I allowed to be LOL.
My DH said that knowledge made my neck grow and that Pinocchio was my boyfriend. LOL He is a shocker isn't he.

The technique was from Kelly Rae Roberts that was published in Cloth Paper Scissors issue 17. Bevlea is so clever and shared her wealth of knowledge on face painting, will I be able to do it again.hmmmmmmmmmmmm more lessons probably. Gosh, bubble wraps good stuff isn't it.... It sure make a good background.

Any comments on it will be gratefully received. :-)
Good, bad or indifferent LOL............

We are rushing up to Christmas time. We are having the week between Christmas and New Year off work. But looking after the business while the owners are away with family that are over from Germany. We have no family over so we will be Ma & Pa by ourselves. But my girlfriend Sandy is coming over on the 27th so we will celebrate a bit then. It really is quite hard to be here without family, especially the babies. They grow so fast.

Anyway, Hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year. Check back soon, you won't know what I might get up to over the break.

Playing with Friends

Yesterday I went over to Bevleas to have a play day. Took a day off work......... Well it happened to be an enforced day anyway as I have been a bit unwell for a few days, so it was great to go and play. It was a great day. We played with some techniques from Kelly Rae Roberts Taking Flight book. Attendees were Bevlea, Lucy , Elizabeth and Barb from long distance.
Barb has hers on her blog already. Shes a clever GF.

Here is the first one of mine that we did. Almost identical to the book, but it was a practise run. I will do another soon with the stamps that I originally was going to use, but unanimous decision we decided to do the same as the book.

We then did another technique from CPS that I haven't quite finished yet. I will load it here when its done. But just to say that Bevlea is a fantastic tutor and I learnt heaps about doing faces :-)) Will I remember it for another time, probably not. But hey an email away or a phone call away and help is there.

Well here we are only 4 days after my previous post.
Not a lot happened at all. Have done a few more things artwise.
Sent a pennant series to a guy in New Zealand and it got lost in the post.
Heres the pics, sorry Denis. Will make you some more.

I enjoyed making them. I will do some more and hope that the firts lot turns up too, then he can arrange them across is new craft room wall.

I am going to visit Bevlea on Monday and we are going to do a page in a book that a few of us have. I am looking forward to it. We will be using Sculpy etc. Never done any baking clay seriously before, so a learning curve for me.
Ciow for now........... I will return :-)
