Smiles, tea and the beach
I really liked this painting by Lucian Freud called woman smiling..I used the newspaper cutting and coloured over it with pastels and added various elements to make this journal page with the words free, reflection and the little saying on the tag says "when I whine I wine" a saying I thought was so funny!
we went to new brighton beach yesterday and even though it was very windy we had a marvellous time playing on the sand and watching all the boats on the mersey..we then called into my friend Lindas and made these little cartons for putting sweets in but they have got lego and toy solider in them now!
Donna over at coming home blog posted about enjoying english tea..I am really into drinking different teas at the moment since I got this cute little tea pot for mums day. The words on the teapot say "mothers are like flowers they brighten your day". I like earl grey, moroccan spice mint tea, camomile, raspberry and green tea..but still love good old yorkshire tea too! Here is my posh teapot along with some shells from the beach in front of the spirea which is in full bloom at the moment.
