I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have four Grand children, three girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too.
with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum.
Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him.
I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx
We are away this morning for afew days to a place called Altea.
It's not very far, about 1 and 1/2 hours drive but the deal we got with the hotel was too good to miss.
So forgive me for not commenting for afew days.
I have three pictures in my house that I inherited when I moved in with my John.
They are flowers painted on canvas and about 18" x 18".
They are nice but I am abit fed up with them so I thought I would alter one and see how it turned out.
I painted the whole thing with white Oil paint, which took an age to dry, I have since bought some Acrylic paint which will dry alot quicker.
I wanted to keep the centre for photos of my Grand kids.
Then I went to town with embellishments !!!!
The great thing about this type of art is that you can use lots of bits that you would no longer use on cards or have had in your stash for ages.
All the doilies are hand crochet by me.
If anyone would like afew please email me and I will send some.
Hand made flowers from scraps of material.
I added Texture Paste, Shells, Flowers, Lace, String
etc. etc. etc.
I put a sheet of acetate in the middle so that I could add a sheet with photos on and change it as and when I wanted.
I have left a space to add pics of Tess when I get some printed when I go to UK in June.
Very Happy with how this turned out and I am eager to do another one.
This now takes pride of place on my wall.
Did anyone catch John next Doors shows on Hochanda with him doing Mixed Media?
I caught up on them afew days ago and was very impressed.
