thenI couldnt decide whether to leave it as it was or add to it, so off course I added to it, first I tried to stamp straight onto it, but that didnt work, so I used some tissue and some beeswax to put my sprite image on, and for some reason the word Peek, worked ok, not brilliant though, Peek didnt show up very well, so went and had lunch to mull it over. . .
was gonna put a Gorjuss girl in middle to hide tissue ends, but too cutesy, decided it was defn going to be Peek a boo, so looked for funky letters to do this with, (I was trying really hard to be a creative artist, LOL), then just before I stuck them down decided to highlight Moon by paper piercing on holographic card, I liked this cos it highlighted the image more
finally decided wanted to add something metallic to it, but couldnt find anything to work or if I did couldnt work out how to attach it, decided on this alluminium heart which I put in the spinner to add some colour too (clever Huh!) and stamped with a hero arts image and then stuck it on the bottom, had to do quite a bit of work on Peek as it wasnt showing and somehow half the K disapeared so added some crinkle wire for the missing part. . . et so voila . . . creative art by me.
I am pleased with it because I created it myself, used some ideas from other people's work but the finished idea was all me, so it will be taking pride of place on my wall, when I work out how to hang it, LOL. . .
ps work was not too bad today, unfortunately, in my absence manager has not been able to get rid of his head affliction (dick) get it, LOL

Our best day was a trip to London, had ordered meal vouchers from Tesco, really good value each £5 got £20 worth of food vouchers for Planet Hollywood, long wait for them though, 13 days, so order well in advance. Drove up their as rail fares were over £80 to get to mainline station, whereas parking in central london was max £31 per day in NCP, £8 congestion charge and some petrol, so much better deal and less stressful. Visited British Museum, too hot and too crowded, . . . . they were stacked two deep !!!!! LOL
lots of lovely specialist shops around museum like comics, coins, whiskey and off course Blade Crafts, managed to lose boys and had a quiet mooch in their, started off being good but then thought what the hell, I wont get up here again for a while, so went mad, yee hah. Used to work and live in this area, hadn't found craft then more into clubs and boys. Took picture from street I lived on, British Museum is to the right and two buildings with rounded roof bits are the hotels I used to work in. Area wasnt quite so hip and trendy then it has too be said.
Bus to Trafalgar Square, waved to person on Plinth and he waved back, Planet Hollywood which the boys loved, though the food wasnt the best, the desserts however were magnificent. Then walked to Covent Garden and Seven Dials, which eldest really enjoyed as had all the "names" up their, final stop was Forbidden Planet, boys shop full of stuff!!! including this man . .
he had a brass pyramid on his head, !!!!!!!!!!
We did do other thinbgs but the brain is going and I cant remember plus dont want too bore you too much, LOL, just gonna try adding some photo's.
