Now one of the remarkable things that we discovered about Lucy this week, is that she lives 5 minutes drive away from me!! Can you believe what a small world we live in? And not only that, she's not long moved house and used to live 5 minutes walk away!! We're sure we must have seen each other in Sainsbury's or Tesco [our local food stores for my US friends] lol
I love blogs :)
Lucy and I are both teachers, we both like to use stitching in our work, and both love Hero Arts designs, oh, and we both enjoy gardening.....but our work is rather different. Lucy works very cleanly, I'm a bit of a messy, throw paint around kind of person. I can't wait to meet up though :)
Ok, if you're still with me, I chose the play date colours this week. I realised we'd not really featured the colour brown in many of our challenges so had a browse around some art photos. Julie and I both loved this chairs image. I'm definitely in a canvas mood at the minute (which is good, as I'm teaching them a lot at the minute!!)
I drew this seahorse earlier in the week for a zendoodling class and decided to use him again here. I used brown, red and orange portfolio oil pastels for his body and enhanced him with stitching and beads.
Spray ink on the canvas, buttons, thread, lace, beads, feather and fabric all bring texture to the sea.
I love adding these bits n pieces, it's so relaxing!
My Sophie is 13 today [Happy Birthday Sophe!!!] and she's had her eye on this piece so I'm wrapping it up for her birthday :)
And I'm going to leave you with Lucy's card, so beautifully neat and tidy :)
Don't forget to hop on over to see all the other designer's cards for this week - they are all FaBuLouS!!
