Was home for a month this summer, first time I’ve actually got to spend some decent time with my family, and I still didn’t get to see mum that much, haha. Anyhoo, not much has changed in the room, just working on a few small things. Dying to get lots of pictures up, but of course there all South! When I go up for Christmas I shall have a bunch to take up, hopefully.
My friend is thinking of getting another tattoo. She found this sketch online (the image at the top) and sent to me asking if I could redraw it for the tattoo artist. The bottom left is my initial sketch, just messing around with ideas and stuff, and the other two are the final (obviously one with background and one without). I had so much fun drawing this.
I have no idea who the original sketch drawing is done by, which is a shame because it’s awesome. If anyone has any idea, just let me know. As far as I know, the sketch is called “Indian Girl Headdress” or something close to that. :)
Recently discovered that my phone camera has Panorama mode… so I’ve been using it constantly! Here is Joz (the Bro) standing at the top of Ben Lomond! He and I took a day and wandered up. It was stunning. Had lunch at the top and pondered life :P. The way down was easy until the last quarter. Then our feet began to hurt a lot because we were practically pushing our toes into the front of our shoes….ouch! Oh well, it was awesome fun and I want to do it again!
Been repainting our landrover these past few days! She was a sorry rust bucket before, and now she is just stunning. Still got a bit of work to go, like repainting all her black areas, and the roof rack etc. But it’s going great! Trying to decide if we should put a third coat of paint on her at the moment, still not sure. Waiting for the second to dry and see if she needs it :)
I forgot all about this piece. After I completed the watercolour version, I decided to get to know the program Photoshop. So I used this as a challenge. I was quite pleased with how it came out, but now I’m pretty sure I could do a better job :P Maybe one day.
Kinda boring, but I had so much fun doing this. Power-washed the roof of the landy in preparation for painting her. She looked so good after I was done.
Trying some richer colours, I’m beginning to really like the look of this. I just hope it works. Need to try out the moonlight scenes now :)
One of my favourite beaches, on the far side it has beautiful soft white sand, and on the other it has huge round pebbles that are rediculously smooth! 5 minute drive from my home.
Photos of me are actually quite rare. Joz always seems to get a couple of good ones, I think he’s very good at photographing people. Usually I look fat, weird shaped and uncomfortable in photos but somehow he can make me look like a person haha. Love this one because it was such a beautiful day, and the hill smelt gorgeous because of the heather flowers and the sea. Despite there being about 40 tourists behind us, we found a quiet spot and just sat there with the view.
Joz, J and I took a picnic to the end of our road. We allowed ourselves to indulge with talk of possible futures. Here is where J and I want to build our house…give us time and it may become a reality! This would be our ultimate spot, it’s sheltered, secluded and has amazing views. There is also a stunning beach just down the hill. I’ve said to Joz that I’ll put a flat above our garage for him but he didn’t seem to pleased about that (especially when I said I wouldn’t pay for an editing suite!). Lol.
Went up da hill tae bag da pits (peats). Luckily J took his landrover so we were able to fill the back with 26 bags, still got that to come. I’ve really enjoyed the work on the hills, it’s a type of work that makes you feel satisfied at the end of the day.
And that is my Bun in a Tub….It kinda fell apart when I tried to take it out. :P
I haven’t posted in ages so I thought I’d post our awesome lan party. This happened June (2014) Friday to Monday! Took three of us almost all of Thursday setting up for it, and our Kitchen ended up being full of sofas :P.
