Happy Thursday!

Its not a special day is a Thursday, is it? I mean its too far away to look forward to the weekend, and it could still technically be “mid-week”, which is a bit tedious, so I’m wishing all who arrive here a Happy Thursday. 😀

So, what’s been going on…..well I made some art (always good, right?)

collage stickers

I’m not sure what to do with them now…..do they become stickers? or do I make a collage? I have no sticker paper so I thought of doing something nifty with double sided tape so that they could be applied only when required. Hmmm….but then a collage would be nice too. With added elements of course – these are just random with no connection.

Also, the last of my ink photos:


Now if such a thing exists as a circular picture frame, I would be very interested! I did look online, but everything is square – or a circle within a square. I would like a circle, with circle glass. Keeping on looking because I would love to frame this one! Its like a little tree world.

And finally….we went for a walk on a cold bleak day. It was raining and cold – typical Scottish weather…

But we saw this

lucky memorial

Which seems to be a memorial to someone’s pet. I thought that was quite sweet. Especially the knitted flower toy lying on top….aww!

A bit of a hodge podge post today, but I’m determined to keep up with blogging, so it may be some quick little updates until I get settled into a schedule. 🙂

  1. Well, it kept you out of mischief for a while even of you don’t know why you made them 😄 The girl looks a bit out of sorts though, I think you’d better find her a companion or something to do pdq, she looks like she’s going to start stamping her feet very soon 😠
    I had a hard time finding a mirror with a round wooden (as opposed to plastic) frame last year, but eventually found one in IKEA. Good luck with your quest.

    1. Thanks! Yes….the way she and the orange creature are looking at each other is making me a little uncomfortable – I think they fell out and now maybe are trying to make up? A friend for them both would be nice. IKEA! Than YOU! Never thought of trying there! 🙂

  2. Can’t wait to visit Scotland 🙂 how did you do that ink drop? I’m currently loving everything purple and light play and the photo just hit my taste buds!! I have found circular frames in arts&crafts shops and IKEA. You can also get a circular canvas and use acetate sheet or a very thin acrylic to cover the picture. I really enjoy the idea of using plaster to make frames… so, that’s a diy project, if you want it.

    1. Oooh! I’m interested in the plaster frames idea…..how is that done? I’m using clocks at the moment. I take out the inside clock bit and paint the sides. Put art in. The ink drop is just a bowl of water with maybe a tiny squeeze of dish detergent to make the water thicker. Then diluted acrylic paint in a dropper, and away you go. or actual ink if you prefer. The purple was an accident really, because I was using blue then red and it swirled up together. So I thought I would plop some black in there since it would show up better and I was too lazy to keep running to the kitchen to clean out the bowl, haha! Come to Scotland, we love creative people 🙂

      1. I’m going to do it today! The plaster frame is quite simple, you can buy it and mix it with water until you get a thick paste. You will need a mold or carve a mold in plasticine 🙂 you can also use clay for either carving or for the frame.

      2. Plasticine! what a great idea for a mold…..nothing sticks to it. That’s another thing I’m trying, haha. I hope you do try the ink drops when you have a chance. Its so much fun and unexpected 🙂
