Here we are again ... and where did that week go? I can't believe we're in May already, even though the weather would have us believe it's still February! So it might be a bit wet and mis where you are, but staying indoors has its advantages ... more time for painting ... yay!!!!
Since the toybox has been reunited with it's happy owner, there has been a bit of a hole in the studio! So before I fill it up again, I decided that I need to go through a few boxes of 'stuff' and have a clear out. The problem here is that the stuff that needs to be 'cleared out' are projects that have gone a bit wrong or I don't like and I keep thinking that I'll just go back to them and re-do them .... and of course I never get around to it! Hence, boxes of 'stuff' which I no longer like or need but can't quite get rid of ... arrrrghhhhhh! I need help!
I'm sure this dilemma will be around for a while so in the meantime I've been trying to get a few bits and pieces finished for the shop ...
The trugs are painted with a distressed finish and string glued to the handle. The same technique has been used for the bin and step too. The hearts and stars are waiting for some quotes, images and string and they'll be good to go. The little terracotta pots are there ready for painting ... they are so nice to paint with acrylics so I'm looking forward to getting started on those. Which reminds me, I should really get back to some of my other 'UFO's (Unfinished Objects) ....
Hope you're all having a great week, whatever the weather! Huge thanks as always to the talented Julia (www.stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk) for hosting this desk-hopping, blog-fest. It's amazing fun and great to see all the different things that everyone is doing.
Thanks to everyone for visiting and particularly for your lovely comments while sharing the toy-box journey with me!
Until next time ... happy painting
