It's been a beautiful day here in Devon, the sun's been shining and we've been out for a lovely meal at the Clavelshay Barn near Taunton. If you're ever in the area, you really must visit; it's in a pretty spot by the river and the food is delicious!
Last week I finished a papercut heart for my Auntie. Here's how it started life...
...and here it is finished, many hours later!
I'm not sure what colour my Auntie will choose for the background, but I've shown it here on red for Valentine's day.
My Auntie requested that it feature lady birds, hearts, butterflies and the word love; can you spot them all?
Here are a few close ups to help.
The heart is in the middle of an A4 piece of thin card. It's almost as high as the card is wide.
I've now got another commission for a wedding present which I'm really excited about! It'll feature the bride and groom's names, their wedding date and a couple of little things representing their hobbies hidden in amongst the flowers.
I'll leave you with these photos of Westward Ho! taken yesterday and this evening. I love the vibrant green of the grassy tussocks against the sky.
