Egg Shell Painting...


Morning all...

...and what a beautiful morning it is... the weather is amazing and most importantly... It's my day off work.. I have soooo much planned... whether I get it done or not is a completely different matter... I will give it all a fair old crack!!! ...mmm... I do have to squeeze the washing in there as well...

so, today's post is showing a painting I did a little while ago using egg shells as a texture for the background... also... what to do with the eggs... make an impossible quiche... this is  so yummy, quick & easy...



What I did was to to soak the egg shells in warm water for a day or 2 to release the membrane inside the egg... pealed the membrane off completely... cracked them in pieces and glued them down (curved side facing up) using Mod Podge... then a layer of Gesso once it was dried and then paint... simple...








This is the finished painting... reminds me of the beach... it is such a tactile painting... feels very cool... it is now living in our bathroom... pretty appropriate...


Well... time for me to venture into my Craft Shed... oh, it's such a chore...

Till next time,

Gaming Night Card in a Box...


Morning all..

Well... last day of work till my 2 days off... wooo hooo!!!! I don't start work till 12.30 so I have a bit of free time to 'play' before I head off... mmm... nice...

Today's card I wanted to share is a Card in a Box... with a bit of a Gaming Night theme... something for the boys.  All the fun 'bits' were cut using my Silhouette Cameo... I would be lost without it!  Anyway... here is what I came up with... (loved the 'old school' floppy discs...)








That's it from me for now...
Till next time...

Pass the Chips...


Morning all...

What an awesome start to the day... the weather outside is glorious! The birds are all awake and singing away... complimenting my pup 'Chewie' snoring next to me... mmm... the wonderful sounds of nature... gotta love it!

Well, my obsession with 'paint chips' has taken over again... mmm... paint chips... yum!
These cards are soooo simple to make but very effective...







Time for a quick cuppa and off to work! A necessary evil I have to say...
Will chat to you soon...
