Gas Street, BCN

I love the bull in the Bullring.  He is now Rudolf with a red nose and antlers.

We have been frozen in for a couple of days, but it is has rained again and is a bit milder.  Fingers crossed.

A Christmas card using a photo of a young chef making chocolate cake!

I matted the card onto silver card and then onto a die-cut label at an angle.  Two "ribbons" of Christmas papers were stuck down vertically and horizontally on blue card blanks and iridescent stars were added to the bottom right hand corners of the photos.

12 cards were needed, and each one had a different colour combination and star configuration.

Gas Street, BCN

 The Observationists, a group of photographers, have an exhibition is Brindleyplace.  Rob Galvin and Cameron Ives also live on boats in Gas Street.

Here is David standing by his two photographs.

The first one is of two of the "party" boats in the misty evening night.

And this one has Vic pulling the "Rootless Forest" down Farmers Locks.

Quite exciting seeing your work all blown up and on display.

Our Doctor has just retired and this is the card I made for his Practice Manager to give him.

 She only gave me a few hours notice so this is what I came up with.  I cut out the clock faces and stuck them onto a white card blank with sticky fixers so that they stuck out.

I cut out a ribbon of clock face backing paper and stuck it along the bottom of the card on the front and on the inside.  I cut off the corners and then added the sentiment on the inside.

And this is the card that we gave him.  The ever faithful "Dunworkin" Buckbies.  I cut out an extra front one and stuck it to the photo with sticky fixers and mounted it onto silver and blue card.  The card blank is also blue.
