Yesterday I received a parcel. well, I am lying, I didn't really receive a parcel, it was actually addressed to Amelie but I opened it anyway! . I knew it was a present from my very talented sister. She had made Amelie a sketch book. Amelie loves drawing wedding dresses you see, so it was the perfect present. It is so cute and lovely, I really wanted to keep it for myself. Well, except for the drawing of the lady inside, which was a bit freaky !! ( my sister will understand!! ) but Amelie loved it, and especially the lady !! She said that Gwen (that's my sister !!) should really be an artist !! That made me laugh, because as much as she is the greatest seamstress in the world ( I have to say that or she will never sew me cushions ever again !! ) and the world's fastest knitter, she has still got some progress to make until she can open a gallery of self portraits !!
I like how it has turned out. I had seen a page in a French magazine where the lady had put three pictures on top of each other. I think you could probably do it on the computer but I am not that great with my PC so I had to print the picture three times and then cut and mount them on white paper. I bought the embellishments in TK Maxx and I made the tire print with some old Christmas decorations as a stencil.
This is what it looks like a bit closer.
The picture was taken in the Ardeche last summer. Harry loved going on the Kart. He was so focus and determined. He got the gist of it very quickly and gained speed and accuracy in minutes. Amelie also gave it a go and to be fair, although it took her a little longer to get the hang of it, once she got a bit more confident, the desire to beat her brother made her go a lot faster than she had probably bargained for !!
So I hope you enjoy your weekend.
