The first is my canvas which has been featured in previous posts in varying stages. Those of you who have followed it's progress may notice the change in body shape She is no longer shaped like a skittle Lol!
The second is a little concertina book. Unusually, for me, I seem to have come over all nostalgic lately. I have been remembering how when I was a about eight years old I used to collect all my favourite greetings cards and pictures cut out of magazines in an exercise book. The type you use in school. I remember the way the pages went all crinkly with the glue. Then I also remembered those tiny little concertina book brooches that you used to bring home as a souvenir from your holidays. Oh how I would love to own one of them now. I remember them just lying in the back of a drawer until they just got thrown away. Some things you should just hang on to.
Anyway I wanted to reflect both those memories in this little book so I used some paper from my sons old school exercise book to make the concertina insert.
It is only small (2"x2.5") and I plan on using left over scraps from previous projects to create the images on each of the 'pages'
The third is a little sketch of another of my girls waiting to be painted.
Before I go, going back to the topic of nostalgia, I have also been thinking of those chunky pens I had as a child . The ones were you have all different colours in one pen. I went out and looked n my local stationary shops but couldn't find one so I settled for this set of gel pens.
There are 4 classic,6 neon,5 metallic and 5 glitter. I have surprised myself at how excited these have made me. Especially the glitter ones. I must be having a funny turn Lol!
Sorry there is no paint on this Paint Party Friday but at least there was a promise of paint with my little sketch.
Thanks for visiting. x
