WOYWW and feeling green

I wish I could say the feeling green was a new found colour scheme but it means feeling full on grotty. Been rolling in and out of bed with the water bottle and upset stomach as opposed to with the hubby and slowly attempting to get up to date with some of the CH project. Me is not so canny at all and gutted that the whole day has gone to waste with being ill and my poor old craft table is also feeling so abandoned.




Just to prove I am not always tidy - a few piccys of the room and work in progress...
Week 3 of techniques - project not yet done..







The finished samples. I am not using my usual camera so some shots are a bit fuzzy and the detail hard to see - like me.
Here is a small canvas I did still continuing my vintage efforts. I have used an original magazine from the 50s and used a spoon as a handle which happened to be in my tea at the time. I have also noticed a bit of ghastly white tape under the flower. Oh, the shame - forgot to get round to sticking it nicely...

 
And a few close-ups - the rather attractive background is the yet to be decorated kitchen and layers of old wallpaper in my Victorian terrace. Working out quite nicely as a display and photo shoot corner! I heard about the Simon Says design call and feel itchy hands, as I luuuurrrve Vintage but feel a bit of a novice compared to the others - But we must all start somewhere. Off to bed now and not setting the alarm. What joy...Have a good WOYWW all.

Those pages look good and it's really not very messy at all. Hope you soon feel much better, though - nothing worse than feeling ill. Go on, feel sorry for yourself for a little while - it's good for you :D

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh your pages are fab and the canvas is sublime! I wonder if when you redecorate the kitchen you should leave a 'vintage patch' just for photographing your projects!! So sorry you're feeling bad; hope you can shrug it off fast.

Sorry I'm late calling in this week. I'm having a really manic week and even had to pop to see my elderly neighbour in hospital last night [only a 62mile round trip :-)].
Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Really hope you feel much better very soon.
