OH so Girly!

Another little something for the bare walls using that transfer technique. I went a bit overboard on the feminine stuff here (I just can't help myself) so I'm thinking this one is going to have to be hidden away in my craft room as I really don't think this is quite to Marks taste. :-D

It's not a matter of there being nothing creative happening around here, It is just a matter of me being too lazy to blog about it! :-)

Self portrait

I spent a gorgeous sunny Sunday afternoon trying to get some shots of my boys happily playing in the back yard. Heath still has a camera obsession and just screams and cries if I don't share it with him. So after he had his usual tantrum and stole my sunnies and threw them on the ground I found that this was the only thing to take a photo of that was actually willing to cooperate with me.

Until he realized that I was having a bit too much fun doing that without him too!

I have done an experiment that actually turned out OK!
I am pretty tired of looking at all the blank walls around the house, I have so many ideas of what I want to hang on them but the shops are just not producing what my head is imagining! I confess that it has been quite a few years since I had done a canvas and the old dark moody tattoo inspired ones produced in my teens just aren't doin 'it for me anymore.

While working on a much larger one I thought I would give an old transfer technique a go. So I dug out these 6 little canvases that i have had stashed away for years and wouldn't ya know ..... it bloody worked!!!! I loved them so much I even made the frame all by myself (well Heath did help a bit) It is not perfect by any means but I'll just label it shabby chic and that will make it acceptable ;-) . I also used a metallic paint so in the right light they really shine. Now I have so many ideas I can't wait to start some more!

I think I have a photo of Amber hoeing into a cake like this at almost every birthday party! .... I wonder if she stops to take a breath!
