ART?

Hi Everyone, just an update on my Grampa's poems - again! I have read them to 2 groups one with 10 people one with over 50, I'm thrilled to say they were REALLY well received and I had great feedback from the groups. Another next week and then the next in - October!

Now onto my playing picture heavy - My post today is because I was in a conversation with a blog friend and she mentioned she drew! I didn't know that, so she sent me a few of her drawings. Thank you Jacki.

I thought they were just beautiful and decided to "play" with them. They came as photos from her sketch pad, so the photos weren't that good, but Photoshop to the rescue. I thought they deserved recognition, and, as they are "simple" sketches, I decided on "simple" layouts.
This is the first one.

Jewellery boxes

Hi Everyone, I was asked recently to make some boxes for jewellery that had been bought by my SiL to sell for charity, she wanted the price kept on them so people would think they were good value. This meant I had to fit the display holder inside the box.

After playing a little while with ready made designs, I decided to make a box to fit. I intended to make a bottom and top box and cut it out as such, but then realised to show the jewellery off, the top part may get lost or damaged, so I cut the flaps off, as in the first picture, so it could be glued to the bottom for display. I'm glad to say she was pleased with them.

I then added a sentiment and 2 lines onto the insert shape with sketch pens and cut the shape with the Cameo.
