Photo-A-Day Challenge

I have wanted to take part in a photo-a-day challenge for a while, but always seem to miss the start and then can't get into it.  I found this challenge on chantelle's blog, so decided to start it on my birthday.  I am going to post my pictures on here and here.  so here are my images from 11 Feb to now, rather a lot of them to start with but I will post them once a week from now on . . .

I'm back at last!

Everything seemed to have conspired against me blogging - no internet and broken computer and phone.  However everything is sorted now so I'm back - and I've got a lot of catching up to do.

Firstly, Being Creative - November and December.  Too late now really but I did take part so I am going to post them here and onto the Flickr group.

The theme for November was vintage.  I want to make a picture for our newly decorated room so decided to try out a small version first.

I divided a small canvas into squares with string, covered everything with newspaper and inks then used bits of all kinds of everything to make little square collages - scraps of pretty paper, leftover fabrics, vintage stamps, book pages and buttons, a rusty washer, stamped images.

I like how it has turned out and I think it will go really well in the room.  So now I am going to work on a much larger version.

The December theme was Winter.  I have been making quite a few baby hats lately, so I thought that this snowy white one would fit the theme well.

That's all for now, but I will defiantly be blogging again very soon - lots of projects to share!
