Friday Night Fun

Well after the boys left for their dad's place I had the house to myself and headed to my studio to work on two canvases I had started a few weeks ago. I'm quite happy with how they turned out, very different from each other but both were loads of fun. What do you think?
 This canvas is quite long 38cm x 114cm (15in x 45in) and I'm sorry the photo is a bit dark in the top right hand corner. Here are a few close ups.

 This second canvas is 45cx 45cm (18inches square) followed by some more close ups.

I had a lot of fun creating these and I suppose they depict my mood at the moment. I would love to hear what you think, well positive constructive comments!
Night all, happy crafting,
take care, Helen xx

The Morning After . .

Hi all,

well the crafting won. I stayed up and worked on an art journal page, I challenged myself and used red, black and white oh and I chucked a bit of silver in there as well. Red is not normally a colour I reach for, having said that I like how this page turned out. Here it is:

I've also recently complete some more pages in my A3 Donna Downey inspired journal. I'm really enjoying working on the bigger format. Here they are:

Well that's it for now,
Happy crafting,

Crazy Life

Hi all,

Long time no posting, almost a month! Reason - hectic life, it just seems that all things hit at once! The house has been put on the market and hopefully it will sell soon, this will enable me to close one door of my life and hopefully start a new chapter. I have put an offer on a new place, my very own home, just the boys and I, and if it is meant to be then it will all fall into place, if not then it just means bigger and better things are just around the corner.
Here is the real advert if you would like to have a look:
And a picture of my main living area:

I have managed to squeeze in a few crafty things when I should have been writing my reports for school, luckily I got those done too just had to miss some sleep!
Here is a page that I created using some Dusty Attic chipboard, a Scrap FX stencil, Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays and some Prima Junk pipes and faucets.

This second photo is a canvas I created for my May Design Team piece for Made With Memories. I used a Prima/Finnabair stencil, Lindy's sprays again (do love them) and loads of Kaiser Collectables from the Honey Chai range. I did create a scrapbook page as well with the Honey Chai range but the photo's not the best.

So that's about it for now. I should go to bed as it's getting late but I want to play . . . uhm which one will win!

Night, take care and happy creating,
