  • Finally All Done!

    I can’t believe how long its been since I last posted here! I’ve decided that unpacking is a lot more stressful than packing … but it’s finally all done – including the 5 boxes which my brother returned to me (after looking after them for the last 18 months) during his visit last week!

    So… what have I been up to? I got my paint trolley from Ikea…


    I broke up all the packing boxes and saved a big pile of assorted shapes to use as canvases, then started painting some of the smaller ones.

    Singing the Blues

    I painted this on recycled cardboard using acrylic paint, acrylic ink and various homemade stamps.

    Lavender Blue

    I painted this on a scrap of plywood salvaged from some packaging using acrylic paint, acrylic ink, clear stamps and a staz-on ink pad.

    There are lots more to show you, but I haven’t finished scanning them all yet, so I’ll post pictures of them during the week.

    I also got a brilliant easel for painting big …

    New Easel

    … as you can see – I’ve already started playing with it. This is just the first few layers – I’ve added two more since I took this picture!! I’ll post another picture when it’s finally finished.

    I’ve also been playing digital … but you’ll have to wait till tomorrow to see them or I’ll never get this posted.

    I’ll leave you with this beautiful view taken on a trip to the Peak District, half an hour from our new home, yesterday.

    Almost There!

    We’re almost there! Today we got the keys to our new house and took the first few bits down in the car; tomorrow the removal men move all our belongings and we get to sleep in our new home for the first time!!

    It’s especially exciting for us because it will be the first unfurnished house that Bry and I have had the fun of furnishing together. Today we went out and ordered our refrigerator which will be delivered on Saturday, and over the weekend we get to go shopping for beds and sofas!

    I’m really looking forward to furnishing my new studio space. It’s only a tiny room ( about 7′ square) but it’s just perfect for me. I’ve already seen a perfect storage unit for my paint – this kitchen trolley from Ikea.

    Effy was blogging about her one the other day and I fell totally in love – so that’s at the top of my list. I haven’t decided on anything else yet, but I’ll post progress pictures as it develops! Keep watching this space!
