Tula’s Flames

​ Tula and I had great time today spray painting this yellow army onto the red wall in her bedroom. We had designed the idea ages ago but we've only just got the respirators we need to spray indoors. I say we, Tula did the designing, I just assisted the artistic process.  Tula Iis very …

Ladybird Lampshade.

​ It had got to that point when our bathroom ceiling needed a lick of paint, so while I was at it I jazzed up the previously cream and rather dusty lampshade. I sprayed it blue, cut a lady bird stencil and sprayed that on and then added a bit of greenery with some acrylic …
