Retro Canisters

Just a quick look to show what a little elbow grease and a silver paint pen can do for a 5 buck set of filthy canisters...before...

And after...

Pretty flash hey :D

Painted Print

Found this daisy print in an op-shop and ideas started flooding my brain and I had to have it...

Got out the paints that night and got busy transforming the yellow middle parts of the daisy's into tiny skulls and am in love with the finished product.

From afar the painting looks very similar to the original but step up closer...

and closer...

have done this to a few different prints but this painted print takes pride of place on my mantle in the lounge room, little innocent skull daisy's :D


Well here goes nothing!

Here we go, my very first blog. I have spent hours and hours lately reading other arty farty blogs and decided that i want to join in by sharing all my bits and pieces that i rescue and do up. Needed somewhere to share my love of art and craft and many many many hobbies with like minded people.

The head of my other half, Josh, is continuously in "shaking back and forth" mode as I show him the treasures (junk) that i'm always dragging home behind me to add to the ever growing pile of goodness that is occupying the lean-to on the back of our shed (nicely out of site I must say so he can't complain!) If only they had hard rubbish collection here in good old Shepparton I would be in heaven (and probably single!)

Hopefully i can work this all out and do justice to all the other fantastic crafty blogs out there.


With Leela, one of my two babies :D
