Still Playing

The front cover for 2017 play book has changed.

As has

Using 2 Leaf shapes I cut from a rubber.

I kept a special parking ticket. Cancer patients were given daily free tickets after each treatment. This was the last one my husband received. I always meant to do something with it. Have cut it up and will add bits to Play Time. ( creative fairy thought this was a good idea)

Will wash over this page with gesso. Covering up a bad time.
Enjoying using up paints. This one is Brusho. Stronger colour than matt acrylics.

Took part this week in a workshop recycling tins.
We all made a Blue Bird. Mine is bottom left with stitching. Do you recognise the tin?

Progressed to Hearts.

Very hard on ones fingers. Good fun but I don't intend to make more.

3 Amaryllis were bought and planted at the same time. I had an image of a bowl filled with these showy plants. As you can see one has romped away, leaving the other two trailing.

Look in next week to view my plans for these.

Open to the public. Well worth a visit.


  1. hello,
    your tin art is charming, i imagine it is hard on the hands and maybe strong gloves should be worn.

    your book cover looks like good fun.
    Wishing you a wonderful week.

  2. I am entranced by your playbook. Looking forward to seeing it in real life one day. You've made so many layers on the pages, what a great class/workshop this would make.
    66c - what on earth could this be for?????

  3. Did a workshop with Alysn Midgelow Marsden machine sewing into metal. Don't think I'd do handstitching though. I do love burning steel cloth! Particularly like your leafy page.

    1. Thanks for looking in. The metal work was all about punching holes in the correct place. One had to be very organized before stitching. I prefer an freer approach.
