SORRY.....

9th March 2014
After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......

OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Sea Glass Heart Canvas

sea glass heart canvas 1
I’ve been tidying my craft room and found a small bag of polish sea glass …… I also found a canvas measuring 15cm x 15cm. …….

I cut out a heart and used it as a template on the canvas,  drawing very lightly round it with pencil and then began placing the glass pieces on the outline, chopping and changing their positions until I was happy.  When I was happy I used a strong PVA glue to secure them.  I’m dead chuffed!

Wow Helen, This is fab! I love sea glass and these colours are gorgeous against the white card. Have you read Anita Shreve's book "Sea Glass", it's a lovely read. xx

Sea glass always reminds me of how we all go through life, starting out with some sharp edges, but softening and becoming more beautiful with age. I love your canvas!

I have been collecting sea glass from local beaches for a while now and have a nice collection. Trouble is, I have no idea what to do with it. I had thought of glueing it onto glass in a heart shape to hang in a window but had never quite got round it.

Thanks for sharing your ideas!
