I live in a grove of pink skies and trees, with poppies growing there in soft, warm light.

Paint and collage

This morning I painted a canvas with acrylic paint hoping for a coastal scene.

It didn't quite turn out as planned.

So then I added collage and a stamped bird. 

This is one small section of my canvas. 

I would like to join in with Paint Party Friday.

See you there.

Bird's nest and washi tape

The bird collage of the previous post is now made into a card or wall hanging.

I hope to link this to The Shabby Tea Room Challenge blog.

It is quite 'shabby' in style and as I have added faux,
(home made) washi tape, it hopefully meets the challenge.
The only splash of colour is the pale pink button of
the hanging mechanism.

A Nest

With the stamp set from yesterday's post,
I have made a nest.

I created this on top of an old envelope and used the wood shavings.

Trying to make this less flat I have raised the bird up a bit and photographed
it from various angles.

The background stamp and the bird are by Paper Artsy.

I will link to Creative Every Day.

I found a cute bird stamp

This cute little Paper Artsy bird stamp caught my eye. 
I have had the stamp set for ages and had not used it.
So, I have made a set of little cards, very simple but they will be useful for any occasion.

I have not glued the images down yet as I may add some other bits.

Also on my desk is some wood shavings, perhaps to make nests!

I will link my desk today to WOYWW.
Then I will go and see what everyone else has on their desks today.

Making Gifts

It was time for gift giving.
So, I made some jewellery and cards for two recent birthdays.

This necklace incorporates a stack of buttons with some vintage beads.

The bangle here uses wooden and glass beads.

first post for ages

Mild, damp and I don't know where it has gone.
Time is flying by!
