WOYWW and other blatherings...

It actually feels like a lifetime since last weeks WOYWW because I have been on the go, non-stop every day. I am totally cream-crackered, knackered and tres fatigue. Just lots to do, cakes to make and too many people to see. I have the first load of Dutch friends arriving Thursday and the old little housey really needs a good shampoo...one more day to get this place into shape. I was hoping to blog sooner but the time is flying by so quickly I only got round to some crafty time today. Ended up completely smothered in paint and gunk and as usual a 5cm clean square on the table. Continuing the Claudine Helmuth workshop which is still really great - just needed more Me time this week. And you need to have at least 10 rolls of kitchen paper ready to go...and remember not to use the best bathroom towels...


 Anyway, I will let the piccys do the talking as I need a cup of tea, a servant and a bath...one out of three will do for now.

So here are some of the different painting techniques. Gesso transfer and etching from last week. This week being resist techniques, old paint, and stamping on CH sticky canvas.


 After the techniques you can work on a mini-project. The idea was to make a card but I went for a canvas idea as that took my fancy. Wish I had more time to play and do some more work on it, but it came out okay, especially as I am not always so keen on big hearts. I am quite fond of my own but that's about it. I did get frustrated with the first heart and threw it in the "I dunno about you mate" box, but tried again. You can't go far wrong with blue and brown...


 So that's all folks...looking forward to Sunday - got some me time again...Mmmmmmm.

ten rolls of kitchen paper? blooming heck - what technique is that then - does it involve major spillages?

(or muslims as my baby boy used to call them)
