Crafty Kids

Cold wet and windy, made for a great weekend to spend indoors with my girls. So the girls weren't sitting in front of the tv all weekend I decided to get the girls being crafty.

Firstly we started with a clipboard each for the girls. Getting some ideas of Pinterest which I love we decorated the boards so they looked pretty for the girls.

This week the girls decided they wanted separate rooms so I have been tackling that huge job.

Now they have their own rooms they wanted something special they could make. We decided to make a Pinboard each. Miss Lyss got a glow in the Dark board. and Miss Chops got a little girly board. 

As Miss Chops is only 4 I don't really want pins in her room ready to be stood on. We put straps across her Pinboard and decided to make it a peg board instead.

Miss Chops loves her new board.

Now we made the boards we didn't want plain pegs so we set to it again making some beautiful pegs for their beautiful boards.

So that is our crafty weekend. 3 girls together is a lot of fun and a lot of mess at the end of the day.
All we need now is to think what we can make next. School holidays coming up soon there will be lots of time to get crafty.

 I have started studying. I am doing an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design and Advertising. Woah, its a mouth full.

This is one of the assignments i did in my computer subject. Had to place all these objects together from different pictures, and arrange them to look like they fit together.

In drawing I had to go through magazines and make up a character. I then had to draw it, scan it in to photoshop and make a movie poster for it.

My favourite so far is the following. We had to think of a design for a shirt. I had to scan it into photoshop, make it extreme black and white. I then had to make a stencil by drawing my picture on freezer paper and cutting it out. Ironed it on my shirt then painted it.

I got my gorgeous girl to model it for me. I am so pleased with how it came up.
After all this I had to make an A4 magazine spread for my shirt.

And this is the final product. I was extremely happy with the outcome and was amazed with what could actually achieve once i got into it.
My tutor loved it also, which made my day :)

Autumn Leaves

My most recent photo shoot. It was a glorious day in Rosalind Park. So many colours, such beauty to look at. It was the perfect backdrop for a family photo shoot.

It was proven to be a tough job to get this little man to sit still with his sisters.

Both girls are stunning and were perfect little models for me. They were having a ball playing and throwing the leaves and hiding in the gardens.

Trying to from the little man was a very hard task, but fun :)

Big smiles for mum

To finish of the shoot the kids get their twinkle toes out for a photo.

With all these gorgeous photos I had to have a collage for the family.

A beautiful day out :)
