WOYWW!!! Wednesday 11th March 2015

Hello crafters

Welcome to another Wednesday.  What's On Your Work Desk today?

Hope the week has gone okay so far for you.  The weather has certainly changed a lot, with lovely sunshine and the hint that spring/summer is upon us with all the lovely flowers appearing.  I've seen some lovely crocuses and daffodils around.  Beautiful flowers!  The clocks will be changing soon and although we'll lose an hour as the clocks 'spring' forward it will be the much needed lighter evenings, which I'm looking forward to so much.

With the spring weather in mind I've been turning to different colours for my colouring of lovely spring colours of greens, blues and pinks and using the new collection called EDEN from Polka Doodles.

Follow the Thumb Linkies at the bottom for the new collection full of beautiful digis (black and white and coloured) of all things fairy like and totally gorgeous pretty papers and embellishments.

The images I've printed out are ready and waiting on my craft desk.  One of them I've coloured already with my Graph It pens and made up into a card that I'll show you this weekend so keep watching this space, but the others are on my desk waiting.

Here you are:

One of them I've already coloured the skin (my favourite part of all colouring it has to be said)

The others are waiting:

And this one I've decided to do in shades of blues to co-ordinate with some flowers that I've chosen from my stash:

Can't wait to get started on these beauties so pop back over the weekend to see what I've created.

Take care

Yarn Dyeing

Hello everybody

Well I haven't done any yarn dyeing since the end of last summer and forgot about a lot of the stuff that I'd dyed, but since I've been working hard on revamping my craft room to organise it so it's more art and painting friendly, I've come across them all and as I hadn't shared any photos with you of my  dyeing for a while I thought I'd share them.

First up was a blank canvas knitted base that I bought as long ago as June 2015 from Woolfest.  The canvas is a long knitted piece of fabric with two separate ends so that you can dye it however you choose and then unravel it to make two identical balls of yarn.  I used a length of cling film on top of the work top and used Kool Aid to dye the canvas and then wrapped it up in cling film and put it in the microwave.  Once it had cooled I then rinsed it and popped it outdoors on the line to dry and then once dry I unravelled it into two equal and identical balls which are now waiting in my stash r…

Long time no post....

Hello everyone

Well I know I've not blogged for months and months, but I've been really busy and have been making the most of other social media platforms to chat with happy crafters and the like. 

But I'm back now and hopefully I should get to blogging maybe once a week or a couple of times a month.....who knows. 

Let me tell you what I've been up to whilst I've been absent from blogland.


1.  I had a big birthday in the summer and got a wonderful birthday present of a Townie bike and so spent every spare moment during the spring and summer (cos I got my present a little earlier than expected) taking in parks and other beautiful places and getting some fresh air and exercise and loved every minute of it.  But now that the nights are now darker earlier and winter is setting in I'm not able to get out and so she's been put to bed for a few months until the clocks go forward and the light nights come back.  So....hurry up winter and do one!!!

2.  Just…

Hi everyone 

Hope you've been keeping well since my last post. 
I've been attending art group still and learning new techniques as I go. 
I've done a few paintings since I shared my owl one, which I'll be sharing later this month, but here is my recent completed one from start to finish. I used watercolours from Royal Langnickel and water soluble oil pastels which were really cheap from The Works, fur texture created with KohINoor pencils and Posca white pen. Hope you like it. Here's some close ups and the finished project all framed up.

Starting to watercolour the background and the background and watercoloured bunny beginning to add detail  Close up of the detail using the Kohinoor pencils  Hello there.....just look at the texture on the fur.

 I achieved the background flowers by just dabbing a paint brush in multi colours and then dabbing them onto the paper after adding brush strokes of green for the stems and grass.  Boo......just look at my beautiful eyes.  a…
