I have been lax in blogging recently - mainly because there was a lot of work to be done in the garden. I am on top of it for the moment, so can craft without feeling guilty!
Maggie's Den was declared "re-opened" for this year so if the weather stays good, I can get out there and get messy with paint etc.
I did venture out over the past couple of days and the following are projects which are work in progress.

and a pendant which was filled with pebeo, which just needs some resin on the top to give it a domed finish
The next piece is almost finished. I won some splodge away masks recently, so have used one of those. I also tried my hand at creating a stamped embellishment. (the stamp is painted with acrylic paint and a special gel) left to set and then peeled off the stamp. I have polished it with gilding waxes in various shades and fixed it to the canvas with modelling past to give it some "movement". The butterfly since I took this picture has now been painted with pebeo fantasy enamel paints today - so will show finished article when I have taken a photo.

This next item was an experiment. Having been on the Paverpol course, and done some "googling" I discovered you could use the technique on canvas. I am going on another course in June to learn exactly how to do it, but in the meantime I thought I would try and experiment use a pva and water mix. (OK it won't be weather-proof like Paverpol, but I just wanted to play. This is definitely work in progress, although having played with it a little more today, and added some more paint and some gilding wax, it is nearly finished. An updated photo will be posted in due course.
