Finished owl :)

Today I did my first Wendy Vecchi project...
And finished off my Owl...

Then just finished off my homework and spent the rest of the day on the trampoline (mostly practising my FRONT flip, cos I can do that and nearly stand up but i cant stand up doing a back flip, Linda Elbourne)
and relaxing  :0) I cant believe how quickly the holidays have gone :O but atleast it was fun :)

I was bored so I went of and had a rumage and came across my chalks.I thought ill go and do some pavement art. A lot of people have no idea what pavement art is or who does it, so i thought this post can be all about pavement art.I started pavement art after playing a game of hopscotch me and my friend thought we should add pics and it just carried on from there. Pavement art is special as it is done in chalk, pubically.The only thing is it only lasts untill it rains because it is done in chalk.Here is the one i did today, its the only one i have ever taken a photo of. I think that more people should start pavement art as if you make a mistake all you need is water and the price of supplies is very cheap.Its really fun to do and is great for anyone who can write, no drawing ability needed!

Also I have been practising my backflip :0)

Well today, I have nothig planned and i'm at home alone at the mo,I thought id go find something crafty to do.I rumaged and rumaged through the bags from ally pally and found some maya road chip board owls, and thought what could i do with one of these? so off i went in to the "studio" and started doing STUFF. In the end this is what I did.

                                                                                          step one: cover it in black acrylic.

Step two: cover in Inka Gold and go over the embossed
bit with a Glaze pen, black.

Now I dont know what to add to it, so if anyone has any ideas please comment!!
After doing this my dad got home. He wasn't very happy cos I got the towell a bit blue :S :0D

Also here is some of my older stuff now my  camera works again...Allof these are workshop pieces so thanks to Linda Elbourne and Linda Brown for doing the classes. :0)

Well im off to town now but ill put some other stuff on later :0)

Some of my older work...

Well I have been asked to show some of my other work that ive done before so off I went to my room to find the other stuff ive done.I actually cant belive how much of it there was! heres the pics anyway (some are a bit blurry)...
 Thanks to Linda Elbourne for the last two as they were workshop pieces :0)

the middle six is one pen pot, and the first four are two big pegs.    I will put some more on but when i wanted to take the pics the camera decides to run out of charge, so i thought i would show some of my holiday pics ffrom when i went skiing last week, in the alps with school.                                       

that was at the end of the week,
we were all sooo tired!!>>>>>>>
