Mixed Media............

Now that I am off for the duration of the school hols...(perks of being a dinner lady!)....I have loads more crafting time when the girls are off doing their own thing so I have decided to have a go at Mixed Media.....I have been watching loads of Youtube videos....and here are a couple of my first attempts...

I am really pleased with how they have come out considering I am limited to what I have stash wise...looking forward to getting away to Glasgow at the end of the week, gonna find me a craft shop to stock up on some paints etc!
Today I am having a go at altering a little wine bottle!
Oh we are also having a go this year at a Photo Scavenger can read all about it over on Rindas blog
Here are the few that Jude and I have managed so far...
no17 A lamp post

no1 A sign welcoming people to your home town

no16 A sign in a different language
no21 A photograph with you with something representing the season (Summer for me means Factor 50 being a ginger!)
I am posting all my pics on Instagram  @janefromthecupboard and linking them up to #rindas2014photohunt

thanks fro stopping by!

Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday..

I knew it had been a while since I had shared my desk but when I went to find my last WOYWW it was way back in Oct 2011!! oh my goodness!!
Well I have no desk today to share as I can't actually get in my wee I figured sharing it today would shame me into getting stuck in and sorting it out....I am off for the school hols so really have no excuse not it is pouring here today!!  I will post next week with a lovely tidy space!
 The Ikea trolley is my new purchase which is still waiting to be sorted out....sometimes I like to go craft in the conservatory if it is a nice day rather than sitting in my wee cubbie, so I thought the trolley would be a good idea as I can just wheel everything through!
I will leave you with a couple of wooden apples I made for Teacher gifts this year....

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Breathe..................

Time for a wee Facebook Challenge over on our Saturated Canary Page :) and its a nice easy one....

I have recently been trying out some mixed media art so have done a wee canvas....but I should have remembered to double check the image I used was still available and unfortunately it is not, it was one of the Help One Now Fundraisers and she is called Breathe....which I have to make myself remember to do these next few days!! eldest girl is off to Cadet Camp for two weeks and the youngest is taking part in her first Triathlon which is being held in the town to celebrate The Queens Baton coming through today.....we had one for the Olympics too but she had only had her cast taken off the day before after breaking and dislocating her arm so couldn't do it and she was not pleased! So she has all her kit laid out and ready for the morning!
I don't have much in the way of supplies yet, like paints and sprays etc but I managed to get some Gesso and Modpodge so I could start playing and I have to say I am loving getting messy! I have spent far too long on youtube watching some amazing peoples work!
Thanks for looking and I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!!

Baby Cards..........

Here we are, Sunday again and my DTDF posting day.....I have made a couple of clean and simple baby cards using Impression Obsession Stamps and Dies which you can find in the shop here
The black and white one I just stamped directly onto the card and for the second one I stamped only the washing line onto the card base and then stamped and diecut the clothes and pegs and coloured with my copics in three different shades of pink.
I hope you like!
 We have been pottering about in the garden the last couple of days trying to get it all tidied up and ready for the hols....we have three and a half days left of term and with me being a dinnerlady I get them all off too!! Yeah!! 
Here is a wee pic of the progress our garden has made over the 17 years we have been in this house....basically it was a muddy field when we moved in 
The trampoline is finally hidden behind the trellis and all we see is Judes head popping up and down!lol
Enjoy your Sunday!
