Welcome to my creative online journal

Wednesday 15 September 2010



Sorry for this but I made my craft tonight, came to photograph it and my camera wouldn't work! :-O !!  

I can describe what I was doing though, just so you know that I did do some crafting today (honest!)

The craft that I did today was to recover a photograph album that I plan to put photos in of the artwork I have done on 'Creative Flourishes' since I started in January.  When I am out in the 'real world' (lol), friends and relatives (that aren't on computers, imagine that?!) often ask me 'what kind of art & craft I do' and I have difficulty describing it.  I have done so many different things, but invariably get stumped when put on the spot.  This is why I thought I'd make up a photo album so I can show them.  I have previously bought a photo album from a charity shop that has bright paint splashes all over the cover, its fun and arty looking but also much too bright and far too 1980's in style, so today I have altered it by gessoing  to tone it down and added up-to-date embellishments.   Hopefully, when my camera is fixed (?), I'll be able to show you.

Thanks for stopping by,
See you tomorrow,

Awwww, such a shame it wasnt working! I'm planning on covering a photo album & know bits of what I want to put on it but need a bit of inspiration for the main part.

Great idea of a photo album for your creations, I've been thinking of doing something similar for my MIL of her past creations as a present.

*gasp* How are you coping? I love the sound of the project you have on the go - it's another I may have to nick the idea for :P

I would call you a multi-purpose, multi-talented crafter ;)

On NO!! Nightmare. Is it fixable? I hope you get it working soon or I'm gonna miss my daily fix of your creations. Jaqui x

Once you start blogging its amazing how much you covet the camera. My hubbie wants to take mine fishing with him in case he catches anything *snigger* but I say no it's far to important. I did let him take it once and told him if the kids and camera went into the river, to grab the camera first, well, it can't swim!

Awww! Thanks for your support crafters, and the good news is - IT'S FIXED! Yay! {Jumps up and down with merriment} It was an SD card problem, it had just locked itself (stupid thing!) but I was pleased as I managed to fix it myself.

I will be showing you my photo album later today.

It's true, we do rely on our cameras a lot whilst blogging, I haven't even got a camera on my phone so I was (temporarily) scuppered!
