Desk Organising

I do like creative mess but I also like organisation too.  I have been making an organiser out of a box to keep on my desk in my bedroom.  I also bought some purple filing trays to keep different pieces of craft paper in too. I do love buying and collecting different types of sticky notes.  I still have plenty of space left to do my crafts on my desk.

Henna Party

Yesterday I got my first experience doing henna at a party.  A friend wanted henna done at their party and I couldn't miss an opportunity not to give it a try for the experience.  The photo above shows some of the designs I did on the day.  I really had a good time and the designs came out really well considering I was a bit rushed being on a time schedule.

The photo above is me doing one of the hands from the party. The photo below is a close up of one of the designs.

Heart Shaped Cushion

It has been a while since I shared some sewing.  I had some spare fabric lying around and just decided in the moment to hand sew a heart shaped cushion.  I think it turned out quite well. I did everything free hand, didn't use any patterns.  Hope you like it.

Owl Painting

I had to look for something a little bit different for a painting I recently finished.  The local art group we attend are doing an exhibition in our local shopping centre and wanted some different styles of work to exhibit from myself.  I came across this style and wanted to give it a go myself, I hadn't really done the bleeding in part of watercolours and it took a few attempts to get it just right for the main layer.

Once I managed to get the bottom layer done then I had to use acrylic paints to make a tree design on top of the watercolour.  I was quite pleased with the final result, though it did take some patience.  This is now ready for the exhibition later this month.
