Blog Along with Effy, September 7th


Once again I am joining in with Effy's Blog Along. I thought I would share some more 'diary' posts, along with some of the crafty things I have been doing.

The above photo turned up on Facebook Memories from 6 years ago in Bali. It shows some newly planted paddy fields. Yesterday I watched a London Drawing Group workshop on David Hockney. Maybe I could use this image as a Hockney-esque painting...

I mentioned my Crown Derby yesterday - I also have some on my dressing table - these came from my Mum's dressing table. The photos are of my Grandparents - that second picture shows my favourite picture of my Grandma.

I haven't had a lot of spare time today as we spent a lot of time on zoom talking to the builders about tiles, carpets and taps! However I did use one of the gelli pulls to make a card.

I added pink paint with a paintbrush through a stencil. I then trimmed this, put it on a black card base and added some black pen work.

Another Facebook memory - a photo taken on a North Wales beach. I thought it would make a good background!!

Finally spring has sprung... The peach tree in our garden!

More tomorrow!
Happy Crafting!


  1. Oh that photo of your grandma is wonderful! Love your art too and yay for spring and your pretty peach tree! <3

  2. "Art is an escape from reality." Yes! I need escape.

    Happy Spring.

  3. art definitely IS an escape. we should all take more time to try it. that photo from wales makes me want to be there!
