I apologise in advance for these bad photos- mostly taken in the evenings.
The last few weeks I have been working on Jemma's room (Connor's has been abandoned for the time being).
Her room had pale blue green sponged walls with a hand painted cornice at the top. As I have previously mentioned this room has been a big compromise!!! Like a typical (I hope) 16 yr old Miss Jem would have loved to have had black walls...mmm nice.
The compromise is cream walls with Knock-your-socks-off red trim and "The Tree"
The tree took the best part of three days to paint - This room now needs one more coat of paint on the skirting boards and then the carpet can go in (oh and a door to paint too). The tree was quite easy we just used an overhead projector to project the tree image on the wall , drew it and then painted it. Of course new curtains etc need to follow so I am planning a trip to Ikea to check out some fabric. (Inspired by Lara who always makes great stuff from Ikea fabric)
Of course one cannot paint all the time , one must find time to pursue the gentler arts as well - like making wee dolly clothes,
Little cardi made from a felted big jumper with a bit of needlefelting on the front !
and the promised wallets.........................
as well as a little experiment with Mr Gocco and fabric.
This is Murphy ! - You can expect to see more of him soonish.
