Silver Work




Hi Everyone
Ive had a lovely day playing with some silver jewellery making (I have also done chores etc - so not all fun). Ive been messing about with this idea for a while and have some more plans to develop the design. My photo story today is my creation. I started out with a simple length of square sterling silver.






I did wear my ring last evening to check out if it works as a wearable design. Ive been out for a family meal to a local restaurant and it worked well. I'm very pleased with the whole thing. I will add to the design but I do like it. Im wondering about setting a stone into the little raised 'arms'. Will ponder the idea for a while.

Thanks for reading.

Inspired by afternoon tea.




Hi Everyone
Today, my photo story is a little different. Following afternoon tea at a local National Trust property (Gibside) last week, we wandered around the shop and I noticed a lovely bag. I examined it for quite some time and then asked how much it was and thought - maybe. Then, my lovely husband said - yes, we will have it and promptly paid. Lovely. Ive been using it everyday since.

Borrowed Images




Hi Everyone
The days are flying by ! Why is Summer going too quickly ? Yesterday, I managed to miss lots of time ? The only significant thing I did was to go Ikea shopping with my eldest boy after lunch, we had a lovely time. We even managed a coffee/cake ! (he's always always hungry). Several times, I needed him to reach up to get things from high shelves - this always makes me smile as he reaches up, I imagine him as a tiny baby !

Totally unconnected, here is my photo picture for today. It's another sketch from the Little Book. I'm referring to the work as The Little Book in my own head - so it's now officially become the Little Book.



This particular page is half the size of the previous and Ive incorporated the tree as above - to extend and 'borrow' from the background. I like this idea and plan to make more pages 'live' in each other's paintings. Colour is needed next. I'm hoping to get some more colours going tomorrow.

Thanks for reading.

The birds have arrived !




Hi Everyone
Yesterday proved to be rather busy for me. Nothing interesting but time ran away ! However, I did manage a sketch (no colour) for a few pages of the little book. As yet, there is no title but a story is coming. The pictures are telling me to think about a few ideas. This is what I had planned. Here's my little sketch for today's photo.



Thanks for reading.

Page Three




Hi Everyone
Another few scenes from the painting story book. As yet there is NO story. Read back a few days for the idea.
It's a week,or so since my last entry in the book - so I'm hoping for something a bit different for my next painting. I'm hoping to do something later today.
