Good Morning all

Today I'm linking up with Lunch Lady Jan, our temporary custodian of WOYWW here. If you don't know what I'm talking about.. do pop over for a look.

Here is todays, untidy desk. I'm working on two mixed media canvases..the last one being the sea shell effort..hence the seashells still being on the desk.

To be honest I'm not to happy with the composition so I'm going to have to 'unstick' something and rearrange it. Then, when I'm happy I will set about paining and misting, waxing and glittering! Lol
The reason for all this frantic mixed because I have been asked to teach it! Wow.. who'd have thought it? So.. I need samples.. small ones to show the class.. I'm really amazed anyone would this it was good enough... and, I guess, a little humbled too!

Here is another project I did earlier in the week too

 and this one for my Grand-daughters bedroom too.. she's only 15 months so pink, purple and lots of glitter seemed appropriate.. so forgive the 'childishness' of

Finally..because I was having withdrawal symptoms from Scrapbooking I did this layout of my GD at a christening on Sunday. The idea came from UKScrappers for their weekly challenge.

So that's it from me.. it was good to see pop back again soooooon!



  1. Lovely LO and I love the composition of your mixed media canvas. Especially the one on the left.:)

  8. Love the LO, I take it that is your grandee? Great light switch cover you made her and great samples for your class. They look fine to me but if you are not happy then unstick and re-stick until you are. Good luck with the class - I am sure it will be received with open hands.

  10. Ooh, that light switch surround isn't childish at all - in fact, I'd quite like one for my room too!! What a great idea. I like your mixed media stuff too and can't understand why you want to alter them, they look great to me :-)
