Technique mini book

I thought to myself as I havent blogged in a while (surprise surprise!!) that I would show you some of the class that I did last year that I never got round to putting on the blog.  This one was for the Bristol scrappers in November.  I really enjoyed making the book . I learnt alot of new techniques myself - which was great! What do you think?

A close up of my fave page - stamped and inked muslin!

Recently I have been doing a bit of this and a bit of that but went to a life drawing class the other day which has set off something in me ! I spent my time there collaging and playing with drawing mediums - I cant wait to go back.  I did an online class with Dina wakely last year and made a fab book I have started to use this as a life drawing journal - I have decided even the mistakes are good as I now know not to try them again!!
I feel I am changing at the moment and am feeling very experimental with my art supplies. It feels so good!
I am not worried about getting things right but am enjoying the process.

This page isnt finished but am trying out techniques on my drawing - this feels such a positive thing for me at the moment and feel so much happier for it!

Heres a couple of layouts I have done lately too.....
Sorry about the awful photos - the kids have hijacked my batteries for the wii!!!

Do you remember Nigel?
Heres a couple of recent pics of him - he's the most lovely cat! (A little stupid at times ie when he sit in the washing machine!!) But so sweet!

Right I'm off to make lunch for the boys.. Have a good day!

Time flies

I cant believe where the time has gone - its now 2010!! wow
As I haven't posted for a while I thought I would share some of my layouts with you .....

Sorry about the quality of the images but the light is awful in our house at this time of year.
Sadly my computer died so I have no access to my other layout photos :(  I didnt realise how much i relied on it as I have lost most of my e-mail contacts e-mails photos music...... and the list goes on. I have ordered a cable that will connect my laptop to the hard drive - I really hope it will work! 

Over the xmas holiday I did a mamoth stock take that took 5 full days (& evenings) it feels so much better to have it over and done with!  If you havent already spotted it I have got 25% off everything in the Bellaboo store -  so come and have a look if you fancy a bargain!
I really hope I can upload some more layouts to the blog soon!!

Oh Exciting news - Guess who will (I hope ) be an extra in Being Human ??? Meeee :) I did some filming for 2 episodes so did 2 of my sons so heres hoping that we can spot ourselves!!! hehe The new series starts really soon!! - I have even got my nan looking out for it!! hehe (Not sure its gonna be her thing!)

Right thats all for now folks...........
