Ten Minute Tuesday - 6 August

Hello again.  Well.despite being off for another couple of days there hasn't been all that much in the way of.creativity going on as I'm right on the middle of a major craft room clearout.  I managed to collect a second hand expedit unit at the weekend. So after clearing a space for it, it took me, Fiona and her.boyfriend.Gary to put it all together and I've finally made enough floor and desk space to work in the room while I'm finishing it off.

Here's what Ive been working on. It's still a work in progress.  I've done it in several tem minute bursts as a reward for tidying up.   The background was based on a.piece in the acrylic solutions book on colour patching but didn't turn out anything like it was meant to lol, once it dried I stencilled on some texture paste through a stencil and left to dry. I can't draw for toffee but followed a link on Carmens blog to some arty tutorials. I liked a simple drawing one by Teesha Moore and thought If give it a go, not too bad for a first attempt I guess.  I've only started to colour her in with my coloursoft pencils but I've a way to.go yet.

The little dots are the beginnings of some abstract flowers by Carla Sondheim from another tutorial I found on Carmens blog.

Why not pop over to Vickis place to see what she's been  up to and then let us see if you  have managed to achieve something in your ten minute bursts.


  1. I think its great for a first try x

  2. Ooh I haven't tried the Teesha Moore tutorial yet - that one might be next ;) i love the way this is coming along and all the different places you are getting inspiration.

    I love the colours you used in your colour patching.

  3. Ten minute bursts-that's the way I do housework!! You page is coming along well!

  4. I love the texture on your page - it's something I have never tried but keep admiring it. I feel a purchase coming on!
