Skippity Skip!

Standard

Skip to my lou

Hello!!! I am no longer a snivelling pile of misery. I am now barking like a dog on 60 a day, sadly, but hey ho…..I am focused and alert and have a tad more energy than before. Hubby and I love to share our viruses with each other  are on the mend.

So! This morning I was all of a fuffle. All this energy and nowhere to direct it. I dyed fabric, thinking I would sew, then an hour later found myself making paper mache masks with the tiny styrofoam eggs I had left over from Easter. Then I made inkblots, one of which is above – very fitting I thought. Skipping along nicely!

We have switched to our Summer Diet earlier than usual – we usually begin in May, but since we clearly need some vitamin support, I’m doing it now. Its very simple and comprises of having fruit or veggie smoothies every alternate night instead of a main meal. It works out quite well – no point in stuffing ourselves with a heavy meal at the end of the day, keep it light and fruity!

Did anyone see that giraffe giving birth? I stumbled on it by accident as the tiny hooves were sticking out of her bottom (sorry, tmi) but I didn’t know the whole giraffe thing had gone viral!! Ah well.

Anyway, nice to be back. I missed you all – lets just give the place a bit of a dust and I’ll get the kettle on!

ScribbleArt……

Hello! Gosh its cold today isn’t? Hope you are all wrapped up.

So I thought I would show a couple of pics I have put on my Instagram recently. They are what I call “scribbleart”, for want of a better description.

Its simply scribbling some shapes on paper (I use the back of wallpaper samples for this because they are large, and why use decent paper anyway for a scribble?) then I find some shapes I like and embellish them into something resembling a narrative. Its a great way to relax and silence the inner critic.

Of course, the odd shapes can present some usual creatures! 🙂

 

Oh hello!

Yes, I know, its been so very long since I posted – over 20 days. I’m sorry. Have a collage

Thing is, I have really been in a stuck place creatively speaking. My muse, Matilda,

So I really didn’t know what to do with myself

I played and painted, tried some collage – didn’t work. I don’t like playing with other peoples images really. I tried to make some of my own collage bits, didn’t work either.

So then I fell back on my beloved Decalcomania. And wondered if I could enhance that somewhat. So I did a little balloon, because I adore balloons.

So I’m back….. *waves to new followers*
