A little quirkiness to start the year.

Happy New Year to everyone. Wishing you all Health and Happiness for 2022. I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and Santa was kind to you.

For the last 20 years I have asked Santa for an Aston Martin….. it never arrives! I wake up every Christmas morning full of hope. The thing is, if by chance, someone did get my beautiful car by mistake, can you let me know because I think I have your Jigsaws!!!!

Well I have been absent from blog land again. Full of good intentions when I set up this new blog. We had made arrangements for the plumber and electricians to come and do a job. They came earlier than we thought which was a good thing but it meant that when they had finished, I could finish decorating the landing and stairs which I had planned to do in the Spring of this year. Anyway, while the going was good with the weather and I was in the mood to do it, I cracked on with the job. We have a sort of floating landing so husband built me a platform to walk about on whilst I was painting…. I’m getting too older for these sort of jobs πŸ™‚ Anway, that’s what I have been doing and lots of crafting in between so I’ve not been completely lazy.

I was sorting through some old gelli plate prints and not knowing really what to do with them, I thought I would glue some digi element prints to them, add some more paint and see what happens. I had fun making these.

I love the quirkiness of these little mashup people digi elements from Miles Beyond the Moon – Mischief Circus.

Well that is all from me today. I am going back to the craft room this afternoon. I am playing around with some painting ideas and techniques at the moment. Just to see what I like, what I don’t like and what I can remember. I love experimenting with paint. Such good fun.

Take care,

  2. Happy New Year my friend.

    You have been a busy little bee and what a good feeling it must be now that your decorating is all done and dusted. That means more time to do the things that you enjoy. Your digital and gel plate prints are fabulous and they work so well together.

    Stay well and happy Flo, crafty hugs, Sandra xx

  6. Happy New Year Flo! Mine started with a whimper and then… Covid hit and my crafting went by the wayside. Still, I think I have beaten it now (a good thing I’d just had my booster a few weeks before) so I hope my mojo will return.
    Your digital-Gelli combination are fresh and fun. The colours are lovely, all very creative Flo! x

Sending oooodles of healing hugs. Flo xx
