Under Lock and Key


When I was creating my canvas earlier in the week I mixed up far too much grunge paste with sky fresco paint, so I had to quickly reach out for something to use it up on, and the only thing I had to hand was a large mdf key shape.  I did have other intentions for this, but am hoping to pick another one up next week at the craft show!!!

The TH blueprint lock was stamped onto two pieces of stampbord glued together, coloured with a mix of ice blue, sky and baltic blue fresco paint.

From Chrissie's blog I've just read about a new monthly blog challenge that has just started called Altered Eclectics and it's the same theme every month, 'anything goes', but it's a mixed media blog, so no cards, scrapbook layouts, atc's etc.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
