A Crafty weekend

With my laptop still away for repair, I turned to my 'real' craft supplies to satisfy my need to make something new this weekend. With the boy away the girl and I set up camp at the dining table and heaved out all sorts of forgotten craft supplies. A few carefully chosen Cds (Owl City, Duran Duran, Elton John, Great NZ album)  helped with the creative process and kept the neighbors away as we sung our hearts out and played with glue, scissors, papers, inks, chalks etc etc. A bowl of Pineapple lumps and some nibbles close at hand and we were occupied for most of the weekend! We really ought to do it more often, I'd forgotten how much fun it is to make a mess, get glue everywhere and end up sparkling ...yes sparkling,  I can't look at glitter without it magically sticking all over my body, I must be some sort of glitter magnet, I open the pot and all the tiny glittery particles say HEY! and rush to stick themselves to my eyebrows, face, neck..the cheeky ones even got right down inside my T shirt!
 I must have been in a very French  mood, here is what I came up with, all on canvas blocks which I painted black.


  1. Very nice! I love the bottom one with the chicken wire and all sorts of layers =]

  2. Just great, love the color combination's cheers Marie
