Earings and more....

Along with my art grade, all my art equipment came too!!

After all that excitement I decided to make a necklace. I always like to try out different ideas and this one turned out OK :)
I was handed an earring request, due to a well liked earring being lost. So I began to replicate it!
On the left is the original, the right are the replicas in a different colour.

As I was in the mood for making earrings I decided to copy (in a different colour) my mums favourite earrings.
To finish off with, my little creation of fun!!

Well that's all for today hope everyone has a nice HALLOWEEN!!!

MY Etui box .....

I took the pictures of the last page(s) of my art sketch book a few days ago, thinking that I had prepared for my next post. I handed it in (awaiting results should get them on Monday).
SO this morning I came to the camera and put the memory card in and wallah..... nothing, it had completely vanished!!
To cheer myself up I baked :) Cinnamon swirls, yummy!!
Fortunately I had something I was saving for a day like this. (the reason for the title) A family friend invited us over as 'guinea pigs' for her handmade Etui lessons, it was brilliant. My mum and I chose the material and followed instructions and the result (I think anyway) is great.
I managed to find some on ETSY, they look good.
Have a nice week everyone and hopefully I will have got my art results soon :)

My Art project.

I have been doing my art project for over a week now and I still haven't finished!! Some photographs have been taken, not close up though but will do that once I have finished and I am happy with the results.First and second page, on the left are two of the artists (Gina Mikel) paintings and next to them a copy of a certain part of them. On the right there is info on the artist with some decorative tissue paper around it.
Third and forth pages. On the left two more printouts of her work with written analysis and a copy on the right in watercolours with another written analysis.
Fifth and sixth pages, on the left a flap with info underneath and on top foam writing (saying Graphite and Ink) with sponged paint on and ink around the lettering. Underneath there is a print out of a graphite and ink drawing and next to that is a leaf from the garden and a watercolour painting of it just below. (unfortunately the leaf has gone a bit brown :0 ) On the right there is the same picture as on the left but cut in half and the right side of it is drawn in pencil and Indian ink by me.
To finish off, I baked some buns and thought "its close to Halloween" So I decided to do Halloween buns!!
Well that is all for today's post, hope you liked it :)
have a nice weekend Lucy x

Spider hunt!

This weekend has been "buglife's" spider hunt. My mum and I spent the weekend looking in little nooks and crannies, in the shed and corners of the house. But the main place we found them was......
The washing line!!! I took a few pictures:
I'm not one for spiders really but its all for nature :)
That's all for today see you soon!
