December already

 Looks like another month has slipped by without me really noticing! I’ve managed to get round a few of the blogs that I follow and I know there are some that still getting to, I just don’t know when.....but I will!

Here’s what I’ve been up to...

Life documented: alcohol inks on tracing paper that’s been diecut

Daily December at Art Prompts Galore and we are making tags, smooshed ink background on watercolour paper for me and so far I’ve got them all cut out, I’ve not finished the eyelets yet but I know where I’m going with most! Here they are in random order thanks to Blogger!!!

8- lights

1- front door

4- Christmas tree

7- Santa’s grotto which should have been a shaker tag!

6- scarf 

3- mittens

5- ornament 

2- snowflakes 
So that’s all for now, more cards to write, tags to make and gifts to wrap.....stay safe and warm and please take care at Christmas time if you’re meeting with others!

A new month and I’m still here

 We’ve got pictures...

From Colour me positive week37

Life documented week 42 

It’s the continuous line foliage that get used!

And week 43 where we had to find unexpected art...

Mine was in a piece of mop up paper

Colour me positive weeks 38 & 39

Another life documented that’s a seasonal one....
I managed to use some of the stickers that have been hiding (in cobwebs?)

I also signed up for a free course with Laly Mille that was based on collage

First up was selected papers/ textures in a scrapbook 

Then we made mini landscapes, I did 2 lots of 4 in an attempt to get to grips with the way of working!

I tweaked the second batch by adding some stamping!

We then went on to make a bigger piece and I do not normally do big!

15” x 15” is huge for me!

This time we were basing it on a grid system...and I felt much happier with this one.

I’m still working on mixed media postcards, altered playing cards, whacky holidays and doing more experimental recipes so there’s no time to be bored!

And yesterday we received a “care” package from my stepdaughter...3 family sized bags of Crunchy Cheetos and some T-shirts

Bless her!
