I'm late posting today
that's because I'm another year older today
and I'm getting slower in my old age.
Today I'm forty-twelve,
I can't bring myself to say the other 'F' word
cos I'm sure I couldn't be that old.
I still feel like I'm in my thirties.
I had a great day, art class this morning
and my lovely friend Lea
took me out to lunch.
Thanks again for that Lea.
Here is my desk today
How cute is this fella.
My wonderful hubby gave me this teapot for my birthday.
I just love quirky things.
Oooh I can feel a watercolour painting coming on!!!
Earlier in the week I decided to do an ink canvas
and boy was that a mess
It started out okay, this is the gloopy stuff.
Then trouble, dummy here forgot to put a high bit of
something in the centre of the painting and all the ink flowed
to the low point.
I had to hold it perfectly flat and get little miss to put some
bits and pieces under it to flatten it out a bit.
|The ink has dried a lot here, I was too busy with the wet puddly ink to take a photo.|
You have to hit the ink hard with water spray and that
makes a huge mess so I had to cover the floor and
cupboards with plastic,but then I oopsed.
Have you ever wondered what happens if you shake
a full bottle of white ink and forget to put the lid on??
Yep, it was everywhere, all over the cupboard, the floor, me
and it hit the old computer on the floor.
I wiped all the floor and cupboards quickly before it dried
but this sorta got missed, ewww.
Lucky I don't need the screen anymore!
Here is my fish painting from class today.
I think it's hideous but the teacher assured me it is
just as it should be.
Just looks like a mess to me but I'm determined
to do it the proper way and hope for the best.
Here is the ink canvas as it is now.
I still have a lot of work to do on it
but it's getting there.
Well that's my fun for the week.
I'm off to start dinner,
so hop on over to Julia's
and see the other desks
around the world
