I did see something I wanted to try though! More of that later!
I would like to remind you that you still have a week left to enter our latest challenge at Try it on Tuesday - Silhouettes
Unfortunately I have a very bad example to show you as this started to as being a silhouette but the paint soaked up the black and my grey birds needed some eyes as they looked a bit ghost like. I know that you won't do anything so silly though!!!
I used some snowflake stencils and some bits of packaging to make the snow. The branches are from the same PA set I used for my card last week.
I am linking this to Art Journal Journey where Chrissie's fantastic theme of Winter Wonderland still has a few more days to go
Now, it's time to join Bluebeard and Elizabeth(and Squiggles) at The Altered Booklover for T Stands For Tuesday.
We were shopping at Booths near the caravan and saw this on offer -
I could do with a good nights sleep so bought it…..it's going to take some getting used to - I could only drink half a cup!!
It doesn't contain sugar but tasted very sweet! Not unpleasant but so different to what I am used to (usually decaf instant in the evening)
Would you like to see some photos? You can skip these if you wish!
A few weeks ago we decided to have a walk around the park that used to be just across the road from where we used to live! They had received a lottery grant to restore it to it's Victorian splendour! We knew that there had been a big Hoo Ha about an avenue of trees being cut down as they weren't on the original plan, but when we went, now that all the work is completed, we had a pleasant surprise!
The have re-routed the lakeside path a little but children can still get close enough to feed the ducks,swans geese etc
The water looked cleaner than it used to.
At the end of the lake is a cafe and pavilion - these buildings had fallen into a really bad state. When we went in it was full so we decided to head home, but we may well go back one day - the food smells wonderful!
This swan was hiding from the other two, they had been hassling it earlier on the other side of the lake - we think she is a female!
We will definitely be visiting again in the Spring.
That's it for now. I won't be here next Tuesday (got a date with a surgeon!)but I will be around this week and hopefully in two weeks time for T stands for…..
Thanks for looking, Chris
