I went on the second part of my facepainting workshop yesterday and have been trying out some of the flowers on little M. Little miss also likes body painting and did a whole scene on her arm. This little scene depicts a rainbow over the sea with a big rain cloud and a black cat sitting on the grass!
Here is the beginning of the wings..
My inspiration has come from the fabulous and talented artist Helen Priem. She makes incredible needle felted and sewn birds, animals and elf folk. It was the Magpie that caught my eye, you can see it here.
There is still a long way to go and a whole heap of fabric to be sewn but with some luck I'll be showing you a new bird in the next post!
Am off to make some rum truffles for my papa now as it's fathers day on Sunday. Hopefully they will turn out better than the last lot which I nicknamed Sh**ty truffles as they looked more like sheep droppings than a food stuff. The best bit was the fact I faffed around putting them in little petit four cases in a box and dusted them with icing sugar but by the time they reached the recipient the next day they has become all gooey and rolled around the box leaving unpleasant looking trails behind them...but they did taste damn good though!!
Well, hope you are all well and happy!.. and thanks again for reading this ol' blog of mine, I really do appreciate your comments and feedback. I'm glad to have met you all in this cyber world!
Happy Weekends to ya x
