Just a bit of journalling.

Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets! 

This Siren certainly plays to win!





Playtime with new paints

Oh be still my beating heart!  These Golden High Flow Acrylics in translucent are to die for!

I have played with them today on a journal cover and they are utterly scrumptious, I’ve been in heaven all day with them. 

Remember alcohol inks and their translucency? did you ever wish you could get them in paint form? oh how I longed for that, well this is quite possibly it!  Whether you want to layer up or just have a few feature areas or an embellishment, using these paints will make them stand out.  

If you were wondering about getting translucent paints, you certainly NEED them!  I am so glad I bought some. 

Please do blame me! If you get some, enjoy 🙂




Pure and simple

…..and now for something normal…..

Maybe I should have warned you to be seated first!

An unloved and battered key safe which had lost its door, perfect up cycling project.

Pure and simple – purely chalk paints and simply stencil and wax!

The bottle at the bottom right is shredded £5 notes that went out of date, this is to bring good fortune.

Maybe I should keep this one for me then! 



Playing with new paint

The new transparent high flow acrylic paints by Golden are amazing, I am having a great time playing with them.

Here are some bottle tops which are drying, there may be some more layers added to them, they don’t seem finished. How luscious are they? Totally lush.



I have an assemblage project just begging for these paints. 



Oh I’m sorry, is that teasing you?!


Queen of hearts A.Nie.Tique

I had great fun reviving this doll from it’s twee costume doll life and giving her a new life with a new owner, who called her A.Nie.Tique.

The crown was a Christmas tree decoration in a supermarket, I got a few while they were there!

Again I used the great products from Decoarts, texture mediums, fabric paints – those are a small palette of colours which is a good discipline for me to be mixing colours. Americana and traditions paints were used on the rest of the body.

I have entered her into a blog competition, the theme is Lavish Lace. To join the fun, hop over to the Punkyougirl blog
