Upcyled patio table.

 FROM THIS .......  One manky old tabletop that was crying out for a whole new look or heading for the bin !!


 One off cut of external plywood at a reduced price !

 A whole load of freebie tiles from a tile shop!!

 And one "smashing" time !!

Getting "stuck" in !! (Sorry)

REALLY pleased with the way this has turned out. It was my first attempt at this kind of thing. Love the rustic country look to this piece!

college project.

This was based on the brief " Identity " and I chose to do a 3D art journal type installation based on my private journal while suffering from depression.

I made the boxes from plywood (with the help of the workshop technician) and all the objects are mostly found objects or upcyled from stuff I had lying around.
 The painted boxes. Wanted a distressed look to these.

 "Page 1 "  Just a simple dark painting. I really struggled with anything creative during this time so tried to recreate that in the painting.

 "Page 2 " The meds. The mini pills are Tic-Tac sweets!

 "Page 3 " . This page is trying to explain my fear of leaving the house and meeting anyone let alone attending Therapy sessions.

"Page 4 " Showing how Art was my Therapy and helped me through. Some old paintbrushes and tubes and a little mini sketchbook.

"Page 5 " A general decluttering of my thoughts and trying not to worry about the thinks I couldn't  control.
The hand belongs to my son and the bucket is a plastic picnic beaker sawn in half.

It's been a while.....

Many many many apologies for my severe lack of blogging. I have just been inundated with college work ! Nothing about being an Art student is easy!!

Still, things are calming down a little now , so much so that I have even had time to actually do some of my OWN work!

Finished off this altered jar I started many moons ago. Not done one of these before so it was a bit of a learning curve for me.

Just a quick post for as I have a few other things I'd like to show and I need to get all the details ready for those.
Will chat soon.

Thanks for dropping by
