Magical Trees

Kasha's birthday gift was to decorate various blocks of timber she provided to choose from. The theme was Magical Trees and colours of black, white and red. The tree image was stamped on acetate and I then burnt a hole in the centre for the bird to pop out of. This was later hammered into the block of timber and the other bits were added on top. There is some pearl mica glued on the inside of the tree to give that 'magical' appearance but this is hard to see.

"Oh dear, how do I explain this"?

This is a partner to the previous hanging which will hang beside the other as well in my art room. I made one almost identical for Marlene for her birthday last month.

It is the Beautiful Bird which gets Caged

One of the latest hanging pieces I've made recently. My husband insisted that I keep this and hang in on my art wall which was a lovely compliment. It measures a little over 6 x 9 inches.

Italian Influence

This is my third page for our Page Dwellers group themed Italian Influence. I used an Italian themed serviette for the background and a few rubber stamps. The title for my page is "Style is Eternal".

Great Giveaway

Check out Magic Moonlight Studio. This is a lovely site full of free clip art and Blanca is currently running a cool giveaway competition.

House page swap

Here are my first two house pages for a swap I'm involved.  Magical Trees was the theme for the first month and By the Seaside the second.  With five in the group and 5 monthly themes, we will end up with a glorious fat house book.

Art of the Month

This lovely felt brooch was made my the very talented Samm Menzies.  I was lucky to have drawn Samm for the month of March and has been a lovely piece to wear this winter. 

Art received

This gorgeous card was made by Annette Husband and given to me for my birthday.  Annette drew this picture more than 20 years ago.  There is so much depth in this piece of art and I find something new each time I pick it up.  Thanks Annette.
