What a beautiful day we are having today. The sun is shining and it is actually quite warm. Just right for spending a bit of time weeding the odd weed. Then when you come inside with a nice cup of tea you can indulge in a little blog land. Just to be a bit inspired. Inspired to take some photos and write a post. Inspired to let you have a peep at what I have been doing. So here are the little peep-pos!!
Still to be put together. I liked the large Japanese flowers, but the scarf was too thin and the special bargain Debbie Bliss yarn was rapidly running out. So a few little flowers and leaves were the answer.
Friday was Art club day or should I say morning. I have played safe for the last few weeks. Sticking with my pencils. But last week I stuck my toe into new waters. I’m not ready to paint yet, but I have tried some pastels. Not the soft kind. Oil ones. Just like using big wax crayons. Layering away. Colour upon colour. Scratching the surface. Smudging the colours and then a little bit of thinners to swirl the colours around. I used my old school pastels. But oh! The years have taken their toll and they are a little dried out, so this week I took my purse and visited the little art shop and bought a box. A box of new colours. 25 new colours. What a treat!
Just a little tweaking! A little putting together. A bit of professional help! Two more weeks to go and the peep-po will be seen in all its sunshine.
So there, little peep-pos!!!
