Honestly where do the days go I spend so much time creating that I forget to blog I do Instagram more often put up a quick picture of what I did that day. Past couple months I have been busy crocheting up a storm. Been some years since I did much so its been lovely. Also learn lots new stitches following along with CAL which thankfully had videos to teach me.
This is for me a purple rug I will put a butterfly in the middle square after I have finished all the Christmas gifts.
Jimmy of course was always helping me :)
the deco they use I'm sure they will love it can't wait
to give it to them.
Doily for a birthday gift she loved it :)
Bookmark for a swap.
Owl cushion another Christmas gift.
Started the mandela CAL run out of this cotton and could not get more so finished it off here I still love it for me :)
A friend made me this blocking board which has
been in full time use the past few weeks.
Life journal class the middle is lots of tip
in's with the right side a flip out.
A small book I can use as a tip in sometime.
Postcard for a swap.
Even managed a little colouring in.

Last of the pages from last month:
Class for the month lots of fun again.
This quote & extra prompt auto went to a China page for me & had just got a travel flyer on China perfect timing :)
Think I would have liked this to be a brighter page
but overall the concept is good so will try again.
Used a journal page from early in the year as the
photo to go on the front of a journal I had printed.

Loved this quote was such a fun one and
I found the most amazing pictures to go
with the metallic background I created.
Yes amazing purple & butterflies made it onto
the page along with the splatters of rain.
Thought I'd share this beautiful gift I received :)
Been a while since I created a canvas so was so lovely to see this one turn out as I saw in my head. Creating for someone you know is fun as I could personalise it for them.
I started out creating lots texture using texture paste.
Next I painted my first sunset background using
Dylusions paints they were the best for this as not
Bonus was I used the remains of the colours to create a background in my small journal for a future day.
When all that was dry it was time to add my tissue paper tree. This time I created tiny twigs & a vine running over the tree as we see in Queensland the strangler vine that takes over a tree in time.
The completed canvas there is so many things tucked away that make it interesting to look at time and time again. Three items I used patina to change their colour as they were too brass for this canvas.
"L" for my friends name. Amazing
what I find in my saved treasures.
Often I peek a larger animal out somewhere this time it was a rabbit thinking about coming out of its hole.
The handmade beads look fantastic on
here with little bit of writing poking out.
Can you see the flock of birds flying in the distance?
Love that there is so much texture
and layers to look at.
The bird is an item I created
using a mould & painted.
The nest is another mould then painted.
Now the canvas bug has bit again time to create more.
Hope you love this as much as I do and my friend does.
