Learning new tricks

Well, it is looking like 2018 is a year for learning new things.
I have signed up for Instagram
And I am teaching myself to display photos of my artwork, in a more flattering way with the help of an app on my laptop. Funny as I have had this laptop a couple of years and this year, have only just discovered I can do so much more with it, who knew? But have to say, all this techie learning is very time-consuming!!

Here are a few collage pics I have done so far.

Well, I must get to bed now as it is very late and one needs her beauty sleep!! 
Night all :) xx

Some time away

Well, it has been a while since I have seen my eldest and my two Grandsons but this week, we are visiting them.
My oldest Grandson, normally always asks me if I can bring some stuff from "Nanny's shed" so not wanting to disappoint him, I packed some stuff for us to play with. 
I packed a couple of birdhouses and some photo frames, paint and some #Powertex. Up to now, we have decorated the birdhouses and tomorrow, we shall set about decorating the photo frames.
 This is my youngest Grandson 

 Here is the birdhouse, that Joe decorated

And this is the one Nanny did.

Christmas and Powertex

I have been recently making Christmas wreaths to keep my creativeness flowing and had been racking my brains how to incorporate Powertex into the mix. Then it hit me that I could.

The frame for the Christmas trees are plastic cheap tinsel trees and I pulled off the tinsel and used the frame, then  I added red Powertex burlap squares to a plastic frame, added some mini baubles and Christmas embellishments. I have added some battery LED lights to under the frame and it really does look lovely. 

My Daughter did the brown Christmas tree and thoroughly enjoyed making it.

Sometimes if you just think outside the box, it comes to you.  

Christmas is nearly upon us

I have been trying my hand at some handmade Baubles
I have been trying different techniques with different materials.
