Very late in the day uploading a post for WOYWW but we’ve been out all day meeting up with friends for lunch – a lot of driving as we met them half way between where we each live. Such a social whirl over the weeks around Christmas that I haven’t had much studio time, but here’s my drawing zone with the next page of my Mamhead album ready to assemble.
I’m using a bit more of the gorgeous blue inky kitchen paper for the background of the photo of the sea – when you get over to the far side of the woods, the view opens right up and you get a simply glorious view right over to Exmouth.
The second photo shows the pages arranged in their pairs. I’ve still got a couple of page pairs to complete, and then I can start adding embellishments and some text, before beginning to bind them together into a book.
Please scroll down to previous posts to see further progress I’ve made on this album.
What a shame I’m not going to finish this project before the New Year! That would have been neat and tidy, wouldn’t it.
Here’s a birthday card I made from a drawing done on the iPad Pro. I downloaded a basic honeycomb pattern and a simple bee outline drawing and coloured them.
We had a quiet Christmas, like the eye in the storm, what with all our meals out! Here’s part of my hubby’s Christmas present to me – a little gingerbread house from Lidl’s.
I’ve got so many Christmas goodies to eat, and we’ve had so many slap-up meals recently that I despaired of my diet – I’ve tried to slot in an extra day here and there (I’m on the 5:2) to compensate for all the Christmas eating, and I’m happy to report that on yesterday’s weekly weigh-day, I’d only gained 1 lb!! I’m trying to ration myself with choccies and other delicious goodies.
I shall be doing my annual review post(s) over the next couple of days.
Happy WOYWW everybody and a happy New Year.
