FIRST EVER MIXED MEDIA CANVAS :-D

Hi Peeps,
I hope you are having a fabulous crafting weekend. 
I have popped in to show you my first ever Mixed Media canvas. 
It is 10 " x 12 ".
I have been working on this for the last week.
My DD has just turned 30 today and will be coming out to see me in 10 days time, and I have made this as part of her Birthday present stack :-D
The little photo is of her and her Dad ( now deceased) when she was about 1 year old.

I was totally inspired by a piece made by GABRIELLE POLLACCO that I saw on You Tube.
I didn't have half the stuff that she used but I had great fun with what I had.
The frame at the bottom left is made by cutting the same design 8 times from card and sticking all the pieces together, since I don't have any of those chipboard pieces :-)
I made the octopus tentacles with air dry clay. Assorted beads and stuff from my stash and the starfish + shells are from my local beach.
The central shell part was made with rolled out clay and squashing it in an embossing folder.
The background is a mixture of acrylics + paints.

I printed out a vintage picture of a sailing ship (very tiny) and inserted it into a dinky little glass bottle :-)

I am pretty sure my DD doesn't look at my Blog so I should be safe showing this one here :-)




Thank you very much for stopping by. xxxxxxxxxxxx

OH, HOW I LARFED 2 !!!

Oh - How I larfed !!!! 
Got myself a new screwdriver with a ratchet system handle.... much better for poor arthritic wrists with no strength........... It has this plastic hanging system where all your Bits fit too ................................but look at how you have to get it out of the packaging !!!!!! WTF !!!!


             

I mean - if this was the ONLY screwdriver you possessed, you'd be well stuffed  cuz you can't use the screwdriver to undo the screw cuz it's screwed into the plastic packaging  !!!!!!!! Hahahahahaha
