Weekend again!

Good morning you all! Saturday again, so I hope you all have some nice plans for the weekend.

Yesterday started off bright and sunny, and then every half hour or so it went dark, and it stormed and rained. A good day to stay home and craft! At midday we had a really strong storm, but it it only lasted five minutes and then blew over. Ir was enough to flood lots of roads and cellars again, some places were knee deep in water or hail-stones. I know it's not as bad as in the USA, so hope everybody there is keeping safe.


I made another canvas with scrunched up tissue yesterday, and kept it white on white, just tried to put lots of texture onto it. Usually I prefer doing things with more colour, but sometimes it's good just to try other things. I used different bits and bobs covered with gesso to build up the texture - tissue paper, flowers, a leaf, some string, lace, some snowflakes, cardboard, lace doilies, a felt heart and one of my heads. I don't mean one of MY heads, I only have one, I meant of course, one of the ones I made in a mould. Everything has been covered with several layers of gesso, so it's all hard as a rock and can't fall apart. I have made a second one, too,similar but different; however, as it's a present for a friend, don't want to show it yet.




And another joke from Narda, just a short one this time:

One day, a man came home and was greeted by his wife dressed in a very Sexy nightie.
'Tie me up,' she purred, 'and you can do anything you want.'
So he tied her up and went golfing.


So, that's all for today. Have a great day, take care, and thanks for visiting!
