I babysat for a friend this evening, the children went up to bed as good as gold and I settled down to do some drawing. And this is the end result! It took me the best part of an hour and I really enjoyed it even if there's a bit of artistic licence involved! LOL


Scrabble board, viintage invoice, watercoloors, vintage photo, vintage fuse, wire, dry letter transfers, brads, beaded trim.

I made this piece of collage for my friend, Skippy's, birthday. I'm into fuses at the moment! The word on it is "dolce" again! Really enjoyed making this piece, it's lovely making gifts for friends and family. :o)

Arty Meme PS

Pssst I don't think the arty meme police are watching so feel free to comment even if you don't want to post the meme on your own blogs! I'll still send the first five a piece of artwork! Go on, you know you want to! :oD

Arty Meme

My friend, Laura, posted this meme to her blog and I jumped in to take advantage of a great idea so now I have to post it to mine too! :oD

So, the idea is that the first five people to respond to this post (via comments) will receive a piece of art from me! I know not what the artworks will be so there's surprises in store! :oD The catch, of course, is that if you respond, you then have to post this meme to your blog!

Altered Tin

I've been working on this tin over the weekend and have finished it this evening. I just wanted to make something for no reason other than doing it and this is the end result! In a former life the tin was a puncture repair kit. I've sanded and coloured it with spray alcohol inks and added metal bits and bobs, a chopped up photo, Titanium earring, fuse with added text ("dolce") and a quote. I'm pleased with it and it may even find it's way onto Etsy! *gulp*

Everyday book Spread

This is my spread for the latest round of the Everyday Book RR on my Yahoo group. This time the theme is courage/black & purple. I struggled with this theme but eventually came up with this!


This is my personal present to Laura. I found the lock on the local junk stall a few weeks ago. Well, I couldn't pass it by when the label said "happiness", could I now?? So I used it on this assemblage to celebrate Laura's 40th birthday. I turned 40 earlier this year and it's shaping up into my best year yet in a lot of ways. Laura is starting out on a new chapter in her life very soon too, I hope it's the beginning of a fabulous 40th year for her!

Chunky Book

I've been holding off posting because both of the things I have to share were for a friend's birthday and I didn't want to spoil the surprise beforehand! So, my lovely friend, Laura, turned 40 yesterday! I organised a chunky book as a surprise for her and this is my page in it.
