MIA............but I am back


Sorry for the absence,  but things didn't go according to plan.........I ended up having two spine operations in the space of two weeks and a whole lot of pain in-between.  But hey I now seem to be on the mend, just need to accept I have limitations, which with me is easier said then done!!

I think during the two Op's my creative Mojo took a bit of a battering as each time I sat down to do something my mind just went blank.  So on Saturday my lovely Husband drove me to Sheffield so I could attend a workshop by the very talented Hel's.  The workshop was held at the Craft Den which is owned and run by the lovely Lynne. If you ever get time to go for a visit you will not regret it at all.

We created a canvas using various techniques, we got very inky and painty but what the heck it was fun. Now in my opinion this is not my best work, but I love it as it has shown me that there is a smidgen of mojo lurking around.  Thank you Hels and Thank you Lynne

I am going to enter this in Hels Sunday Stampers challenge as this week the theme is diamonds and pearls.............  

Art seems to be my word for 2013

I have used Tim Holtz Rub on's on some of the petals and stalks, super cute.

I adore how these letters came out, the colour and texture is just lush.

Thank you for taking the time to come by and visit Tuck Towers.
Until the next time. xx

  1. LOVE IT!! And I NEED those rub-on's... been after them for yonks and now I see they must be in the shops, I have spent the past few weeks with my head in the clouds lol Am so chuffed that you enjoyed the class and hoping Old Mojo comes home with lots of new goodies for you too! Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x

  2. Oh my goodness Sue, you really have been in the wars but it is very nice to have you back. Your canvas is absolutely gorgeous, I don't think there is much wrong with your Mojo at the moment! Hugs, Anne x

  3. It was lovely to meet you Sue and glad you enjoyed your visit, although maybe it was a tad too much for you. Hope you've had a nice relaxing day and feel better. Love your finished canvas. Lynne

  4. Wow, a stunning piece of artwork. I love what you've created Sue. I'm so pleased you had a good day with Hels, definitely what you needed to kick start your mojo. Enormous thanks for my wall hanging, it's taking pride of place.

  5. Checking in on you Sue! I hope that you are doing better and that your mojo returns soon. Take care of yourself and don't overdo!

  6. Sue, what a lovely project - really like your laid-back colour scheme and glad you had a good time; mojo isn't that absent I reckon! Hope you feel a lot better soon, Sarah x
