Creative Week

Hi all,
(ha I laugh at myself cos at the moment I don't think anyone actually looks here it is just for my enjoyment! I may be wrong, I sure hope so.) Anyway I digress, this past week has actually been quite creative. Last weekend was a long weekend here in Perth and I got to enjoy the talents of Finnabair. I took part in a 4hour class at Scrapbook Secrets in Maddington and had a great time. Have a look at my page and Finn's.
Also during that weekend and this one I have managed to make another few pages and canvases. I created two pages for my March Design Team quota for Made with Memories and I used Graphic 45's French Country range. Sorry you'll have to pop into the store to see them as I forgot to take photos! I also created 2 canvases for Annemarie to choose from for my April class. This is the one she didn't select . . .
The other one isn't like this although it has similar colourings.

This weekend I also used my pan pastels and created this small canvas.
I am also taking part in Christy Tomlinson's She Art 3 online class and really enjoying it. Mind you haven't finished any girls yet. Am finally working on a background and hopefully will be adding a girl in the next week or so. Trying to fit creating in with work is hard, thank goodness I don't sleep much!

Would love to know if anyone actually views my blog or not!

Take care and enjoy,


  1. Hi Helen, I love your blog! Please keep writing. I really love the Shine canvas - how much do you want for it? It's really beautiful. you have inspired me to give mixed media a go - I'm bringing my craft supplies to Peru and will give it a try. It was great seeing you last month. Best of luck with following your passion! Annette xxxxxx

    1. Hi Annette, email me your new address for Peru and I am sure I could send a house warming present to you. Take care with the move. Helen xxxxxxx

    2. Meant to add it was great seeing you too! Every couple of years is not enough!

  2. I am taking Christy's class too. Love your work with the pan pastels.

    1. Thank you very much Debbie, glad to see someone is looking at my blog. Are you taking all 3 of the classes? I am enjoying them though not getting enough time to play.
