I hope your Wednesday has been brighter than it has been up here. It's been a day of constant drizzle and rain and today of all days I decided to visit the Christmas market in Manchester. It was now or never as it ends this weekend. It was a nice day out just drifting along from one stall to another.
Anyhow you're not here to read about my day out. Here is how I left my desk this morning. What you see on the desk is some magnetic backed frames which I bought from Pound World they were a horrible pink colour (see 2nd picture). I've applied some black gesso to them to which I'm going to add some metallic paint and some of the gems I bought yesterday which are in the round containers sat on top of the wax crayons on the left. I'm thinking of putting some of my gelli art prints inside them instead of photographs.
Here are yesterdays bargain buys from the local Pound World in the nail art section they had these pack of gems which you use on your nails but you know what they're also great for your artwork and you can't argue at the price either. The large pack of crystal gems (540 approx per sheet) I found those in the stationary and craft items. The packs of coloured gems were off the local market at 50p each.
Thank you for all the visits and I must apologise for not doing many visits last week as it's been a case of making and delivering stock to Authentic and then a day or so later getting a message saying my stock is running low. Not that I'm complaining. I'm just over whelmed with how much people are liking my work. I'll try to do better this week.
Have a wonderful week Anita
