A Messy Day

Spent the day round at Lindsay's, getting messy with paint, glue and stencils, having a go at decorating a papier mache box I had in a grungy, steampunk style (inspired by her lovely canvasses, which can be seen in her Etsy shop and on her blog).  I'm not the best of students when it comes to a "classroom" situation - my brains fly out the window I think *LOL*, so I think Lindsay was rather exasperated with my ineptitude at times and I got "told off" a few times (that's sisters for you)!  Mind you, I did spill some water everywhere and nearly swept the entire contents off the table at one point, so I'll forgive her! Haven't finished the box yet and I think it may end up as a Christmas present, so don't want to give too much away, but here's a peek .....

Yesterday, I took the plunge (after much pestering from Lindsay et al), and dyed my hair for the first time in my life (bringing it back to the colour of my teens), so today we had a lot of fun taking photos of ourselves in a variety of poses (and selfies) in Lindsay's garden.  

I'm afraid none of the selfies we took of the two of us together
 are suitable for public consumption .... ha !

All in all, it was a good day - and an extremely silly, giggly one! - hopefully it'll have inspired me to get cracking again with my own inks and paints and start creating again ..... it's been a long time since I've felt like making anything!


  1. Exasperated.....? More like completely driven insane!!! Only joking....we did have a fun day and I even managed to get some work done.....after you'd left! Just winding you up again! Must try and find at least one of those selfies that I can share!

  2. Your new look suits you ;) xoxo Sioux

  3. LOL - it was hilarious ! ..... and thanks, Sioux.

  4. Glad you had a good play! I did wonder who was in those photos - looks great!! Chrisx
