I bought some mica yesterday, really interesting material to use and I'm looking forward to trying out a few paint effects on it. It's layered and you can keep peeling it until you have a wafer thin piece that's still stable enough to attach to your work.

http://dansmamaisonilya.blogspot.com/ is orange, mine's only a small work owing to sick children and plans to craft all day day going horribly wrong. Anyway, in German they say 'klein aber fein', small but beautiful! that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

With the family around at the weekend time to create is kind of limited, but I did manage to do a bit of prep for various projects I'm working on, a few more canvases, glued and painted the business cards in readiness for the Skylines and Skyscraper challenge although I still don't know what I want to do with my little town. I also followed an interesting link http://sarahwhitmire.blogspot.com/ via a comment by Connie on my blog. I've always wanted to do an altered book or journal but even after reading a lot about making them was still unsure how to get started. On Sarah's blog she gives a series of daily prompts to help you create your own soul journal, the group has just finished but I'm keen to have a go and will work through them myself.

http://dansmamaisonilya.blogspot.com/ a site I have admired for quite some time, this is me with my guiding star. I wanted to do a watercolour background but then discovered I don't actually own any watercolours, which is very odd as I'm sure I must have had a box at some stage, anyway I scribbled over the page with various Neocolor crayons and wet them instead. As I was deciding which pics to put on I caught myself sticking my tongue out just as in the photo (Carole:)) nothing much changes...

on a roll
Last night I decided it would be quite cool to display the canvases together on some kind of hanging arrangement. I found a bit of wood in the garden that's been there for yonks and had a go at chopping it up, then I sloshed a bit of paint on it, sanded it and attached a bit of twine. An object of true beauty it isn't and if you breathe too hard in the near vicinity all the canvases fall off!! but at least it's a starting point. Will have to pay a visit to the lovely Herr Deck in the DIY store and try and explain in my best German that I need some bendy hooks! I can imagine three canvases in similar colours or a theme.

I'm not sure how old my mother was when this pic was taken, will have to check with her! I got to use my lovely embossing tool with interesting results, I ended up inhaling half the powder after blowing rather than tapping it off the canvas! ah the things you learn not to do
