See Tim's HERE
and Wendy's HERE
And here is my 2nd stamp release..DS010 Travelling Travis.
I just love the androgynous look of the face, could be male or female, whichever you prefer. The body of suitcases, just an added quirk. Again two extra heads, eyes, hands and a cracking pair of legs.
Some samples, both using the Distress Stains.
Today was the large abstract canvas painting workshop, and I was a little apprehensive to say the least.!!! Mainly wondering how I could convince the students they were capable of producing fantastic results.
Well all went to plan...see for yourself.
The results were fabulous. Liz had to leave a little early, so will finish the decoration and quote at home.
The lovely Jill was on the portrait painting class earlier in the year, and her daughters have been watching her recreate them at home. Here's what Ella ( I think she's 7yrs, sorry if I got it wrong.!!!) has drawn all by herself. Cool aren't they.??
Pandora hiding behind hers.!!
Sandra's canvas for her hubby Andrew's study.
Bezzy Su taking a photo of me taking a photo of her.!!
Bezzie Su's canvas
And mine, unfinished of course, too busy sorting everyone else out.
Big, big admiration to all the ladies for their determined efforts and their fantastic results. Ladies I salute you...
If seeing their results has inspired you to make one of your own, I have slotted an extra class in on Friday 15th July. I think there are two spaces left. Go HERE to book a space.
I was showered with gifts today, and twice became all overwhelmed resulting in tears. One was when the lovely Liz brought me this fantastic picnic hamper.
How frikkin cool is this..?? It has bone china cups , saucers and plates, all securely strapped in.
Look at the dinky salt pot, there is a matching pepper, and tea and sugar.
Two matching Thermos flasks, and sandwich containers complete the set. All I need now is a vintage plaid blanket and me and Mr Babe of Deliciousness are all set to go...Tea anyone..??
She also brought me this fabulous packaging container for Swiss Roll mix.
which Our Ben swiftly whipped off me for display in the shop.
Oh almost forgot , there was also a vintage hamper..Maybe I will store the champagne and plaid blanket in it, lmao.
The other occasion was when the gorgeous Sandy Poppins swung a surprise on me.
You all know my fascination with icons, especially vintage statues of Our Lady.
Well here's a beauty that she brought for me.
How frikkin gorgeous. Just like the one on the side board at my grandma's house. Faded, chipped, well loved, well prayed and agonised over. She will take pride of place amongst my collection.
Thought she deserved a Hipstamatic view..
Lucky lucky girl am I ..??
