my creative space

so great to have 'my creative space' back for the start of the new term. school's back!!

the one at the top ~ 'theory' is finished and the other two are in progress. they are/will be acrylic, pencil, pinholes and stitching on paper.

painting these pieces inspired a trip to the art supply shop this morning. i had spotted the most beautiful gouache paints ever {over the holidays}, and have also been obsessing about water colours, which i think might work better for what i'm trying to do with the bottom layer. i was very restrained and bought only a couple of colours to try them out . . . am sure i'll get back to the shop soon. {i don't shop for shoes very often!!}

hope you've had a creative, fun day. will pop in to yours asap, no doubt i owe you a visit {sorry!}.

visit kirsty for more spaces.

a couple of finished pieces!

in between editing and uploading images {for the website}, i took some time to finish the stitching work on these pieces. i made print versions of them ~ very excited about the way the prints look virtually the same as the original!

the top two are mini prints. they'll be in the shop.

happy short week!

it's been a week of solid work here. all computer work . . . hubby has been looking after the kids and taking them places so the house is quiet!
i'm almost finished my website ~ one of the big jobs on the eternal list! it's a good feeling to be able to focus on it and just keep going while my brain is in the mode {after 7 days, the mode might be escaping me!}.
would love to hear what you think.
i used otherpeople's pixels {see the logo on the top right} to make it ~ i like that i can make the design how i like it, pretty simple, without needing web skills!

how has your week been?

my creative space ~ big prints

thankyou for the lovely birthday wishes! the weekend was lots of fun and i was completely spoilt!
almost feeling back to normal now :)

i've been working on my computer this week {and last week} ~ making large prints. being grown up = having a new printer that will print on a grand scale and on extra beautiful paper! the photo is quite dodgy~ the sun is out today and i have the blinds down. not complaining at all though . . .

the big ones will slowly make their way to the new section in my shop.

happy creative day!
for more creative spaces, pop over to kirsty's.
