I had such a creative weekend/week so far!

Here's what I've been up to


This was a 3D wooden puzzle that Martyn got me for my Birthday. I decided, instead of having it just the wood, to paint each piece before hand. I laid them out as best I could, and guessed the relationships of the colours a bit. I was really happy with how it turned out.

And then, for aaaages, I had some MDF, ready to make my own canvas boards, and THEN for another amount of ages-ness, I had all the other materials to complete. Finally I got to make them. It's soooo simple to do, and really satisfying, I can't wait to paint them all. I made 15 in total, it was a bit of a juggling act in our small room.

Here they are drying away

And here they are finished! I ended up using copydex instead of PVA to hold down the backs, but I think I'm going to have to go over those with PVA, as the copydex still feels a tad tacky. 

I'm so happy I got to do some relatively random creative things this weekend, as well as see Dawn of the Dead for the first time, what a brilliant film. 

What did you get up to? How did you get inspired? If you didn't, why not dedicate an evening or sometime of the weekend to just indulge in something really creative and fun. 

Happy 5th of November!
