Be Youtiful

Two videos up in less than a week!! It is quite amazing what you can accomplish when planning and marking aren't part of the equation....except they are and I MUST get more work done before half term is over!!! Anyway, here is another one, a commission for a dear family member to take to Australia. I started using canvas board to make it lighter for packing and discovered I so much prefer it to actual canvas. Much easier to stamp and stencil onto when it doesn't give! I am converted! Its a piece inspired by an Australia artist (coincidence) called Julie Ryder whose work is a billion times more beautiful and accomplished than mine so please also visit her blog here: http://made-by-me-julieryder.blogspot.co.uk/
