I've had a bit of an eclectic crafting weekend.  Scrapbooking and playing with my clay and plaster too.   A week or so ago, I mixed too much plaster for a project and half of it went hard in the plastic cup.  It came out lovely and smooth and I didn't want to waste it, so I kept it until some sort of inspiration hit me.  This weekend, it did.  I'd cast the embellies too so just got to painting and sticking.  It's a paperweight now, although it's standing with some of my altered art work and won't get used, lol.

This layout is of my Granddaughter Mia and myself. I went to Cyprus earlier in the year and we spent a couple of days at the beach.  I looked just awful in my swimming costume so wouldn't wear it, lol.  Suffice to say, Mia had great fun soaking me and my clothes.  Some journalling on a hidden tag tells about the day.  My papers are Echo Park 'Paradise Beach' and I made the 'wet' letters from chipboard, distress ink, a white pen and diamond glaze.

Strike a light, Lorraine, your paperweight is fabulous!!! Fancy creating it out of 'leftovers' and various bits and bobs!

I also love Frank in your previous post - what I mean is, I don't love Frank, I love what you have created using him - he would be a bit hard to love. (lol).

You look like you are having a great time with little Mia.

Thanks for the comment sis, hope to be over to see you both in the next week or so.
The plaster and clay creation is AMAZING, I love it so much. It looks like an Indonesian holiday gift and it's something I would love to have on my desk too, so beautifully put together and the feet are bloody marvelous - one of the grooviest things you have ever made.
Loves ya,
