Wet weekend

Well the weekend has arrived quickly and wetly. Yesterday was sunny and hot and today is wet wet wet ! It is a relief to cool down a bit though, i must admit.
This week I have been working on altering another box. This one is for my son's girlfriend as she really wanted one. I used many different techniques on this one and have enjoyed each stage. It ended up being prettier than my usual makes but makes a nice change from grunginess. I hope your weekend is going well everyone. Have fun and dance in the rain .... I just did, breifly. It was to entertain my mam lol she did laugh at me dancing in the rain outside the patio door hehe.

Well the owners of the flat we moved to in January have decided they might sell it and we had a viewing today. We do not want to move out but its out of our hands so only time will tell. The biggest problem for us is that Mam has settled well into this place and its only been 6 months. Now we feel pretty unsafe with the 6 monthly contract. We will get 2 months notice if they sell it. So it looks like our lives will be turned upside down again in the near future but I am beginning to manage these things really well and as they say "que sera sera"  
In the meantime, while i am here i will show you the last of my journal pages that i completed. This one was done last week.

Blogland return

Today I have decided to return to blogland. Oh I do have a lot of catching up to do, its almost like starting from new again. I have spent most of my time looking after my mother and settling into a new place to live with her, so the last six months have been a blur and the only place on the net that i have been visible is on Facebook. Now though, i think it is time to come home to blogland and to begin to share not just my art but my ups and downs with you all again. I have missed you.
I am kind of finding my mojo again in art and am slowly getting back to things now we are getting a little respite while mam goes to day centre etc. Here is a starter pic of my most recent accomplishment. Have a lovely day all.

Its been a while since i did any blogging. First i lost my dad then got depression then have struggled creatively but finally i made a small canvas. Its not brilliant. not even very good but its something and i am pleased to have something creative done at last. I will get there and hopefully be blogging more again too.
Missed my blogging friends so it will be nice to get back to some blogging too.

Some Gel print art

Its been a tough few weeks and if i am honest  ... few years. Still we are struggling to come to terms with Mam going in a home and coping with Dads death but now i do have a little more time for art, although i was finding it hard to get inspired until .... yesterday when after a month's wait my Gelli plate finally arrived. I thought i would get right into it and make a start so I created 3 sheets to begin with (need much more time to play with that beauty) with one of the sheets I decided to create some atc's. So the three you see below are all from just one sheet of gel print i made. Hope you will enjoy them. It feels good to be creating again.
