I've just had a week off, which I've spent keeping busy and doing as much crafting as I could. Most of the week has been spent finishing my sister's 50th mini book, ok her birthday was last July so its a wee bit late, but never used to see her that often and then she got a job in Saudi Arabia and this Easter is the first time we will be catching up with her and her busy lifestyle, so had to pull finger out and get book finished. It took ages and I hope she loves it, because even thought we dont see each other often she is my sister and I love her and doing this book bought back some great memories. Will try and post some pics this week but havent scanned it yet.
Anyway once that was done could do something for me, have been reading Craft Stamper and their Art Journal series, on Friday manged to get some cheap mountboard from the framers not quite free, but only a couple of quid for enough for lots of covers. So with my new Claudine Hellmuth paints away I went, I-pod on and creativity on high, so here is the front cover, had to resist doing an exact copy of Kate Cranes, as hers is so yumptious, and then discovered that I follow her blog, well worth a visit to the Kathryn Wheel. Tis true its hard to let go, but I tried not too judge myself too harshly and let the creativity flow, used some collage images from ITKupilli and Lisa's altered Art, both of whom do some lovely dark and gruesome but cute images. Im quite chuffed Ill make an artist yet, LOL. I never did art as a subject at school for "O" level (that shows me age for a start), so feel I have missed out on lots of the art basics, but experimentation seems to work most of the time.
Anyway enough warbling, Desperate Housewives has just finished and its time for bed, Grrr finished on a cliff hanger and not back for two weeks, grrrrrr.
