Almost finished… July 22, 2009

My collage/painting is nearly finished… quite proud of it so far. I think she is almost done. Does it come under mixed media? Is it a textile collage? Not really sure what genre it comes under but it has been enjoyable to do…


I’ve given her another couple of coats of red for her hair…


I have added sequins to her dress for some sparkle…


And here’s a full shot…


I think i will be finishing it off tomorrow. I did quite a bit on it this morning to make up for not getting a chance yesterday. I went to meet a friend for lunch & got back to discover my kitchen flooding… the flat upstairs was totally flooded in the bathroom & it was seeping into ours. A contractor came out & sorted everything out thank goodness, apparently another hour or two & our ceiling would have caved in! By the time I had gotten that emergency diverted I was pretty exhausted so just curled up in front of the TV when Joal got in. Now I have to head off to work so the finishing touches will definitely be done tomorrow….

Well hello again! Ive had a busy past few weeks, far too much work, not enough play… but I’ve had the last couple of days off & Ive managed to get sunburn (In England, in April!), see my dad & brother & take them out for a lovely day, catch up with my photography & discover Taylor Swift!


My lovely dad & brother displaying their musical tastes for all to see!


A work in progress… a painting of mine that I never quite felt was finished. The other day I got the urge to embroider it & try some applique… will see how it goes!


Another work in progress… i’m obsessed with the teardrop shape at the moment 🙂


Gorgeous flower… an anemone maybe?!

I am back to work later this afternoon, & its another week of stupid hours as one of my colleagues is off to Greece, lucky him!!!!

I am taking a break from my etsy store for the time being as I cannot commit to actually making things, photographing them, uploading the pics, updating the shop & then the constant promotion necessary to run a sucessful etsy shop! So… I have decided to use my ebay shop… http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/beingbeatriceboutique to sell my handmade goods on alongside my general stuff. My works in progress will be in here soon!

I’ve missed you all, hope you’re well & enjoying the sunshine!

ps. Ive just received some spool dolls from Wunderkind ready for me to paint & customise… they’re awesome!


Above is an example from Wunderkinds flickr page… buy them at www.etsy.wunderkind.com
