Homework for my Textile course.

The homework this time was to use photographs and build them into a collaged background. I have tried to make the edges of the photos merge with the rest of the canvas.

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week the words Neet has chosen are " I will never be a well behaved woman"  The background is distress inks with stencils used with the same colour inks, plus a purple. The figure is a mixture of  stamps from Dylusions. The pet pig is a Zinki one from Paperartsy.
I thought with her somewhat odd dress sense and her choice of companions, she didn't look as if she was well behaved. She's probably been on the funny mushrooms as well.
I must now do next weeks as I am on my textile course next week and we have Peter's brother and wife coming to stay for the rest of this week.
I also have one piece of homework to do before Wednesday as well. No chance of getting bored around here.

Tag Tuesday Anything goes

Valerie is hosting this fortnight on Tag Tuesday with 'Anything goes'. I don't know about anyone else but when I am given the choice of doing anything, I don't know where to start.
This time I started off by using texture paste on my tag, painting it and adding a bird or two and some shells to add a bit more texture. I have spent four days at the seaside with my daughter and three beach mad grandchildren and had to have some seagulls on this one.

Thursday Journal with next.

Neet's choice again with ' I ate healthily and exercised today...I had better frikken wake up skinny'
The background is distress oxides with stencils used on top. I added a small amount of stamping.
The figures are painted with watercolour pens.
I have just come back from my daughter's in Swindon and once again I have left this until Wednesday night. I really must get my time organised, too much to do and too little time.
We have visitors at the end of the month, and then I am away on two courses at the beginning of September.

Tag Tuesday -- Anything goes

On Tag Tuesday Valerie is hosting for this fortnight with Anything goes. Given the choice, leaves me clue less, so I went for texture with this one, using up some bits from my stash. I hardly ever go to this stash and need to use it up.
I used texture past on the tag and painted it with shimmer paints. I added some embellishments and beads.

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week the words are 'I don't want to seem like I think I'm always right, but I am, that's why it comes across that way' Brilliant, and as Peter says I'm always right so if the cap fits !
I used Dylusion inks for the background, and a few stencils with a Distress Pine Needles ink. The only thing I could quickly lay my hands on for the figure to sit on was a house, but I did cut the chimney off as it looked very uncomfortable for her. The two cats are looking a bit submissive, cos they know she's always right as well.
Hopefully by the time this is published I will be on a sunny beach in South Wales, ok maybe not sunny, but you never know.

Tag Tuesday -- Summer fun.

This fortnight on Tag Tuesday, Joan has chosen Summer Fun for her theme. I'm very late putting mine on as I have been working at the Festival of quilts in Birmingham, and the spent the days since working in the garden and catching up with housework.
My tag is distress inked on the background, with all the images stamped on separate card, coloured and adhered to the background. I found a little crab charm to add to it.


Thursday Journal with Neet

"I haven't seen you since that time I hoped I'd never to see you again" Neet's choice again this week and I have used a Dylusion inked page for this one. I used some stencils and stamping to add a bit of interest. The figures are all Dylusions and painted with watercolour pens.
After my stint at the festival of quilts which I really enjoyed, I spent the next day in the garden and a bit of yesterday. I think being on my feet for days on end has just registered with my brain and I am now tired and lacking in get up and go.
I now need to get on with next weeks as I am going down the the South Wales coast with my daughters and grandchildren. I want to show the children the caves at Rhossilli, and the beaches are lovely. No doubt after that I will another holiday to get over it.

Thursday Journal with Neet

Another of Neet's choice with the words " I'm exhausted by how stupid everyone is getting" Not easy, these last ones are a real challenge.
I started off with a Dylusion inked page and images that were already coloured. A good job I had some ready as I have left it until the last minute as usual.
I am working at the Festival of Quilts today, Friday and Sunday on my friend and tutor's stand (for my textile course), Hilary Beattie. I just hope I can cope with standing up all day and coping with the card machine. I should be OK on everything else say's she with confidence.
This is a scheduled post and I am now off to bed.
