And now it's finished!

Later, I had another look at my handiwork and thought it lacked something. My button box was something I took home so I delved into it and added some. I think it looks a lot better now:)

Craft storage progress

After painting my storage box with heirloom white paint I stencilled it using acrylic paints. Previously, I had used stencil paint crayons but like a lot of my craft resources they got left in Saudi. Using acrylic paints worked out ok but a couple of times I was a bit over generous with the paint on the brush! I enjoyed having a really good excuse for doing something crafty instead of regular chores in the house or garden.

Macro!

Macro photography has been an absolute disaster as far as I’ve been concerned. Every time I’ve thought I’d cracked it I have had to look at all my friends beautiful ‘captures’ when all I’ve been able to succeed in doing is create , yet another set of blurry images! I’m pleased to say that yesterday’s attempts were a great improvement:) the only worrying thing is it was more ‘luck than judgement’ and I just hope that next time I will be able to reproduce a few more successful macro images……….
