My younger Grandson, Corran, was one on Tuesday 🙂

This year Red Nose Day celebrates its 25th anniversary….25 years of raising money to help thousands of people in this country and abroad. I bought some t-shirts for me and my Grandsons, bought a Dino toy for GS1, a wristband for me and made a donation here. Hope you enjoy the photos of us in our t-shirts…if you do, make a donation HERE.
A class from the lovely Christy Tomlinson at Scarlet Lime which I am trying to make some sense of in my jumbled room! I’ve managed to do a Pinterest board of inspirational faces and have added some sketches of them. The next task was to produce some backgrounds on canvas…I’ve completed four with background patterned paper that now need painting over in paler shades. These will be the bases for my portraits… I need to watch the video lessons for this yet. Below are some of my efforts…..

I’ve just finished this class with Jessica Sprague and found it really enjoyable and very useful to find the ‘ins and outs’ of my new mobile phone, even if only from the photography point of view. It involved using instagram and other apps to take, edit and send photos hassle free and craft projects by Heidi Swapp to display and make cards from the photos. It’s surprising how much you can do just on the phone and the apps are either free or available at a very small cost…I think I spent just over £6 altogether to download and buy all the bits and pieces. Much better than the hundreds of pounds you can spend on editing software! A gallery of my work follows and can also be seen on my instagram page. Hope you have fun looking at them and that you’ll contact Jessica if you would like her to run the class again 🙂 There are also instructions for an instagram stand to display a photo, but it involves joining pieces of wood together, so I haven’t got round to that part yet!!!!!
