If you have been following me recently you will see that I have become quite a Dr Who Fan, and my 9 year old is an avid fan too! I decided that seeing as I have also started enjoying Paper Cutting I would put both of those likes together and design something jointly. So here is a Dr Who Paper cutting that I have recently done. I really love how it looks framed.

I have been busy painting recently. I decided on a new style using square canvasses. I decided to paint a local scene to where I live, this is Penshaw Monument. Whenever you travel out of thew City you see this in the skyline and when you return you know you are nearly home! I have climbed the hill to the top on numerous occasions and been on the monument. I will try and share some photos below of this lovely monument.
The photo collage below shows my youngest daughter 2 years ago also painting Penshaw Monument in acrylics!

I am sharing some photos of some face painting designs I have recently done. I have put together a collage of Sci-Fi designs from Dr Who, Star Wars and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Some are designs I have done on the face and some have been done on the arm.

If you have seen my previous post, you will know that I am a Dr Who fan. My youngest is also a fan so I thought I would do some artwork to go in her room. So I have been busy painting recently. She is also a Star Wars fan so I might be sharing some more art work on my blog with a Star Wars theme too.
This is just a plain white canvas that I painted in a galaxy colour background, which I splattered with white paint using a toothbrush to give a white starry effect. Then I hand painted the Tardis on the top of the background. My daughter loves this painting.

I admit it, I am a Dr Who fan and so is my youngest daughter. My elder daughter is normally the one who decorates candles but I thought I would have a go myself at decorating a candle. So I chose the theme 'Dr Who' and hand painted a Tardis onto a plain pillar candle with a Galaxy theme background.
I am quite pleased with the outcome for a first attempt. I might have a go at some other designs now.

Here is another papercutting I have recently done using an EmbellishBox design. I have previously blogged about the new monthly EbellishBox package that I received in the post. This was one of the designs from the box. The original design was slightly bigger with more detail than this but I just cut out the part of the design I wanted.

I have been busy recently making some Upcycled Scarf Bags. I use second hand scarves that I buy from thrift stores/charity shops. I make these scarves into tote style bags and add a lining with a pocket using upycled fabric too. I am making these to sell on my craft stall or on my Etsy page.
I have posted a while bag showing the original tutorial on how the standard bag is made from a scarf. Here is the link: http://www.karimascrafts.com/2013/07/scarf-surprises-30-days-of-ramadan.html
Photo above shows some of the tote bags on my craft stall.
