Red White and Blue

It seems that where ever you go these days every thing is red white and blue (in Britain that is) from bunting and flags to exceedingly good fondant fancies from that iconic British cake company. I personally don't care for fondant fancies but every week when I go to the supermarket I am tempted to buy some for mouse who does like them. But I am digressing the point i was going to make is that this nation seems to really getting behind this years jubilee celebrations not to mention the Olympics later in the year. It seems that in the years running up to the Olympics everybody has had something to say some good some bad. When the Olympic symbol was first released it was slated from all corners now it is a symbol we see everyday and I expect that most don't even notice it any more being on so many sponsors packaging and advertising but it puts a smile on my face,it has sort of grown on me and I suspect on a lot of other Brit's as well.

A few weeks ago we had a delivery of Kanban goods among them some clear stamps including a set of dresses. I made a few demo's for the shop and the recent craft show but thought they would look good in red white and blue so below is a pic of a mixed media canvas I have recently finished called Red, White and Blue, which is sort of my tribute to 2012.

I think I am going to have to take a course in photography or may be it just that the glass bead gel medium (Golden) doesn't reflect the light as much as I thought, but the cream coloured section is a crown that seems to show up much better when not viewed through a lens.Any how I am pleased with the effect in real life so to speak you can the writing from the paper background underneath it.

I am sort of having a day off, I  went to work at lunch time for a couple of hours as we are so busy at present, but now I am feeling creative so I am off to play despite the fact the housework isn't done but hey that's life.

Keep crafting
