So this week was all about Art, and in terms of actually getting art on the walls, it can only be described as a failure. My prints from my parents, and my llama picture remain stubbornly unframed. And as mentioned, the making of bird prints from vinyl records requires some specialist equipment. Apparently I need a hot knife, which I gather is some kind of soldering iron. DH has found one on the internet, so that project is on hold until I get one (although if anyone knows where I can get one in NZ, please let me know).
But since I am not one to let go of an idea once I have it, I decided to use my bird templates for another project. I had a calendar from several years ago that I couldn't bear to throw out because the art was so beautiful - lets call it forward thinking rather than hoarding. So I cut out my bird templates, and painted a canvas blue to stick them onto.
You will notice that there is no picture of the completed artwork. This is because I have no craft glue, and the supermarket failed me. In fact, the supermarket failed me completely, it didn't even have picture hooks for the cute felt canvasses to go into P's room.
So no art on the walls this week. But I did get the chance to do some 'arty' things, including some sketching so I actually feel quite pleased about how this week went.
