Christmas Crafts

As this is a new blog, I haven't yet had chance to write about my love of art and crafts. But now I am part of the Art Blog Hop I thought I best add the aspect of art straight away!

A few days ago I had a few hours to spare so I made a few cards for Christmas.

Here is the result of my first one:

I went over a silhouette image found in google images using grease proof paper, then turned it around and drew over it onto card. Then I got the watercolours out a painted in the picture. I am happy with the end result.

I don't think this one is as good, but I made it using the same technique:

That's all so far.

Hi! My name is Ruth Teal and I'm a thirteen year old school girl. I live with my family of five being my mum, dad, sister and brother. I have two pet fish called Mike and Chelsea named after Key 103 Breakfast. But you don't want to hear my life story, you want to know why you should read my blog right? Well, I don't really know the answer. Hopefully I will entertain you with some funny stories, update you on big events and simply share a bit of love of laughter... Stick around, you never know what the future holds.
