Sunday Sketches - The Tom boy

Hi everyone, this week I wanted to explore my ideas for my canvas library bags, I created this piece with coloured pencil.

I've got lots more ideas for these bags that I can't wait to get down on paper :0)

I've also been busy making more wooden tile pendants out of my prints, here are a couple of new ones :0)

These little cuties are now available in my shop for only $10 (including chain/necklace) until market my day :0)

The weather is finally warming up big time over here and I can feel summer in the air, yay!!!!! Perhaps I'll have breakfast on the deck this morning! :0) I'm looking forward to visiting you all this afternoon!

Sunday Sketches - Little Red

Hi everyone, I'm afraid my Sunday sketch is a bit late this week as we have had a massive weekend. We had a big birthday party for my youngest little man who turned 5 on Saturday. It was a lovely day with LOTS of children running around and eating party food. Our little man had a lovely time and we were totally exhausted the next day.

I wanted to share with you my 'Little Red' bag that I painted last week. I really like how she turned out and I think this one would make a great library bag!!! :0)

Paint Party Friday - My canvas bags finally arrived!!!

Hi guys

Well this week has been quite a busy one with school holidays and a husband with the worst case of the man flu,  you can imagine that I have  had my hands full!

Finally my canvas tote bags arrived that I ordered a while back and have been able to paint one of them already. I wanted to paint a design that looked like  you were carrying a painting around with you and so decided to recreate my 'Garden Angel' design.

First up I sketched the design on with fabric pen.

 Then I set to work painting it!
I'm really happy with how this turned out and have so many more ideas for more bags. Our supermarkets over here are soon to be banning plastic bags so I thought this might be a nice  way to remember to take my bag shopping with me. You could use it for anything really and I also have ideas to make some cute kids library bags with some designs on too.

The next step is to heat seal it. I will be working on more of these this week and adding to my shop :0)

The other thing that's been keeping me busy this week has been a school holiday project with my boys. We decided to make an animated movie so have spent days drawing and making characters then building a movie set. We took loads of photos the other day and I now need to put them into the computer with this software that I have which will put it all together. I think after a long time of taking pics we have about 3 seconds of film heheheh but the boys are loving it.

 The opening shot with 'Sir Scardey cat'
 The boys designed then made the characters. There is this crocodile/dragon and the spikey things are the 'dark lord's' minions hehehe
 My 4 year old took over as set designer and made some beautiful flowers he also designed the crocodile/dragon.
The end shot where 'Sir scardey cat' and 'Princess Proud' are reunited!!!

We had a lot of fun!
