I just found bump!!!
It's an app that allows you to literally "bump" pictures and other stuff from iPhone to iPad....yep I'm a geek lol...so I've been bumping some pictures I took earlier of some art journalling pages using my iPhone to my iPad...much as I love the iPad taking pictures isn't easy as it is so large and hard to control...

Using oil pastels to create background and stencilling....
The journalling reads "big dream...of one day owning my own craft shop in a little cobbled street beside the sea side"....

Watercolour background, water coloured canvas tag and utee heart...

I have Recently discovered clear gesso...applied over patterned paper you can then watercolour the paper allowing the design to show through....

Can you tell I'm loving orange at the moment!!!

I've spent all day today lesson prepping and planning and am finally chilling on the couch listening to the x-tra factor....yep I'm still sad but Mr Barlow is looking rather lush...and I'm not talking about the ken from corrie!!!

Take care

Crab Apples!!!

I know I've been a terrible blogger lately I am back teaching at the College and I'm working three evenings a week, I'm still teaching leisure courses but I'm also teaching BTEC courses in Mixed Media and Jewellery making which has been a challenge but in a good way and I just don't seem to have a minute to myself lately, running this alongside family, weekend workshops and demos and I'm pretty much wrecked and sadly in bed for ten each evening!!!

I was over at Crab Apple Crafts today demonstrating for Kars, using the gorgeous new Marianne Christmas Creatables with the Cuttlebug...I had a fabulous day and met lots of lovely crafty ladies and gents and only ten minutes travel time too :-)...

Nigel very kindly took this picture of me...

Thanks for that Nige...

Have just worked out how to blog from my iPad...only took me FIVE months so hopefully I can blog a little bit more now...we can live in hope!!!

Off to drink several glasses of a very chilled liquid refreshment and chill out with the X factor...yes I'm that sad!!!

Take care
