FOLLOW ME TO
MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Splish, Splash, Sploshing around....

with paint that is :D  Just fancied a play and made a swirly stencil out of paper to play with for my background.  loadsa fun!!   Used more images from Dyans downloads but this time I coloured them with paint and Copic markers.  So versatile... I am gonna have to have more...lol


I started off with an idea BUT after I wrote my journalling on the page (just quickly by hand) I looked at the page again and it reminded me of something that happened a long time ago so I think now I am gonna paint over a bit of it and add different journalling... sheesh the things I do...lol


It was the HAT that did it!!  Provoked a memory from my childhood when these hats were all the rage and we began making a corduroy one at school... all hand sewing too I might add.... I was about 8 at the time.  However I had an accident and got my fingers badly trapped in a car door so was absent from school for a while and when I returned was still bandaged up so couldn't sew... but worse... because I wasn't at school my teacher decided to give MY HAT to someone else to complete and keep.  SO MISS BROWN... if you ever read this .... KNOW that I hated you for that from the depths of my being...lol
