I have always had a hobby of some kind , I have put my camera away as I am limited with no transport & got sick of photographing the same stuff up here so that's it until the rut in Oct .
My aunt who has always been very artistic & painted until her artritus (sp) got the better of her gave me some books she had , there decoupage based books mainly on wood , old chests & draws etc .
I went on you tube & watched some tutorials & when my old man gave me £ 100 out of his Cheltenham winnings I brought some bits & pieces off e bay
I have used some home made chalk paint & paper napkins , glue , mat varnish & various bits , this is a few of the bits I have done so far , the box is for my moms birthday in a few weeks the fox hare & birds are on 8x20 inch canvas's , the jars are old coffee jars with napkin images decoupaged onto them for my paint brushes to stand in
