This picture was created by the rain itself outside in my garden today! I bought a Rainbow Aquadraw set (charity shop £3!), (which I know is meant for little children but I thought I'd use it creatively myself!) and, for this picture I took the aquadraw mat into the garden - when it was raining- and photographed the result. I've used Picasa to deepen the colours a bit but I'm not sure I've mastered the lettering part yet.
One more practice and this picture was taken out of my sitting room window earlier on this evening:
I added the outside frame, which makes it look like a window itself. Think I could get used to this Picasa....
Another craft I have been making recently is a decoration for the bathroom:
It's a memory jar with a picture from an October holiday we took in Lowestoft in 2006. (If I remember correctly, the weather was a bit like it is now, freezing cold and rainy!) Anyway, it is a fun picture (a fabric transfer onto thick white felt) which I added to a jar with some children's play sand and some shells. I did have the lid on the jar originally but the sand is a little damp so it caused condensation to form on the glass so I have left it off until the sand dries out. Memory jars are fun things to do and you can do them on all kinds of themes, I already have some others in mind on my never-ending 'Crafts to Do' list.
Thanks for stopping by today,
