Hi Everyone hope you’re enjoying whatever you’re doing this weekend. A little glimpse of sunshine would help to lift our spirits here in the UK. My Mum cant remember rain like we've had the last few weeka in her whole lifetime and she’s 91! The local area has been flooded out the last two days with power failures and disrupted roads and trains. We're lucky to live in the UK though! Lets hope the sun comes out for the Olympic Games.
I’ve been having counselling and support from an organisation called Impact, in Wellington, which provides support to the families and friends of addicts. There have been times where I don’t think I’d have got through without them to talk to. To show my appreciation I decided to have a table at the local Arts and Crafts Fair on the 28th July. Any money raised will be donated to them. I have grand ideas one minute then a mental block the next!!!! I'm paying for the table so I hope I sell a few!
Here’s some of the cards I’ve been working on this week, using stamps from Art Journey and Aspects of Design, machine sewing and wire flowers from rejected watercolour paintings. I also have some small watercolour paintings which I’ve mounted onto cards. I've made three or four of each design, each slightly different so they're all one off's.
I’m hoping to do some altered art dolls and birds and some Affirmation books and Art Journals too.
Ahhh I only have 2 weeks to fit it all in!! Wish me luck folks.
