I didn't have the best time at art class today.
I'm so tired I couldn't concentrate.
I added some gloop and made the feathers
and the branches this week.
Yep, two hours and all I could
manage was a few feathers and
a branch or two.
Why am I tired?
Well it's exam time
at school again and
Whenever hubby is stressed or
has a lot on his plate,
the noisy Mr Snore comes out.
You see, hubby is a teacher
(maths, oh the humiliation)
and exams are always the culprits.
This man can snore in every
and even the hardest jab in the ribs doesn't
alter his pitch or volume.
Is it me or are men totally
oblivious to the outside world when they sleep??
I spent half the night trying to shut him up
and the other trying to ignore
the freight train that was in our bedroom.
Hence, eyelids droopy and operating in
slow motion today.
My desk has a few things on it this week.
I decided to draw and paint some of the
flowers that I had received over the
last few weeks and turn them into cards.
I painted the orange flowers large and the pink flowers
were just a small size. The main reason for the painting was
to finally use my new water colours
and they are fabulous.
You just have to touch the pan with water and
the colour is brilliant and strong.
Now all I have to do is to cut them up and make
them into cards.
My teacher has been giving us drawing lessons
and I used the technique to draw the flowers.
Then I drew it in pen
and coloured it with the paints.
It worked quite well but I had run out
of matte photo paper and used
smooth water colour paper to print
out the cards. The paper
absorbed a lot of the colour
and it is a bit washed out but still
a nice effect.
That's all I did last week,
not a lot but I'm getting back to it
I have to find a subject for my
next canvas but I can't
think of a thing right now.
Now you've seen my slim pickings,
why not head on over to
and see what's on every one elses desks.
I'm taking a sock to bed tonight,
I think you may know what I plan to do with it
(mwa ha ha).
