Bad, Good and Shininess!

I fell over last night.  A fall tends to start the bad thoughts...  I'm so I'll, it's been nearly 17 years, I can't even walk to the bathroom without falling, it's never going to get better...  I had to consciously stop those thoughts and focus on the good. 

Luckily it was a great day for positive things - I was announced as a member of like for ever kit club's first design team.  And when the positive things are hard to find I need to make them, create them, pull them out from under wherever they are hiding.

I was messaging my sister in law over the weekend.  She said she was sorry things were a bit shitty. I replied the shittiness will pass.  I must only have typed one t and auto correct changed it to shininess.  This is what I need to do.  I need to set my internal auto correct to switch from shittiness to shininess.  And with that thought, I'm off to make some art...

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my news!

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
