Wall saying

Saw this on pininterest and knew I had to do it! Cut the alphabet from TH die and it's an American craft house embellishment. Used mod podge  to glue it and seal it, really love it :) Put it by my front door so I can   see it!

Boys room idea

Got a big pack of crayons in the €2 shop for the kids end of year present and had some left over. Some mod podge stuck them down and volia a lovely wall piece

Steampunk Pendant

I got a packet of watch parts off ebay and had a little play today. I used fimo but it was a bit old and very hard to condition. I used eye shadow of all things to get the glimmer. You can't see from the photo but I used one of the watch pieces for the loop at he top. Once I mod podge it to seal it, it'll be good to go!

8 month LO

I cannot take a straight photo...and this was photoshopped! 
8 months just gone, 9 months tmrw (6 1/2 corrected) finally getting the hang of some things like standing and wearing 0-3 month clothes if only he could smile at me now it would make my day!

Altered art book page

To draw you must close your eyes and sing. Mermaid is a downloaded image and I just drew in more hair and tail to help it blend in a bit. I gessoed the page first and then used my new watercolour crayons to get the background colour (need alot more practice with these!) and random stamps.Nothing special but it was nice to get my hands dirty :)

And Danbo was born

I was curious about a little amazon box turned into a robot I was seeing popping up on camera blogs, until I googled him & fell in love! I wasn't willing to pay the stupid price they were asking and found a tutorial here:
and photo help from here:
This isn't a quick project, don't be fooled!! Took me about 6 hours all in all but I was so determined to have my own Danbo I didn't mind :) except maybe having brain freeze in the middle and reading the English like it was Japanese, I don't do well with instructions!
His legs, I inked up the edges with TH Burlap to give it more dimension

This is around about where I felt like throwing it in...but wanting to see his little head kept me going

Poor Danbo is shy, I'll have to introduce him to everyone
