Pajama Game Backdrops 

For the last few weeks I have been holed up at the Nomad Theatre painting the backdrops for their new production Pajama Game, a musical based around a pay dispute in a pajama factory.

First step was to cover up the old Cinderella backdrop and create a base for the new scene: Green for a forest and blue for a river.


Then I started to add in the details


I painted the tree foliage in using a sponge and as many different shades of green as I mix to give the scene shadows and highlights.


Then I added details on the bridge and the forest floor.

Paint your own wedding

One of the main reasons for my blogging absence in 2013 was my sister’s wedding. With her in the USA and the taking place in the UK, there was lots for me to do! It wasn’t all hard work though. I also got to organise the hen party!

We had an arty day painting pottery that was then used at the wedding. My sister picked the colours and then everyone went crazy! It’s a really fun day out – I’d recommend doing it even without the party and wedding. In fact I’ve been back quite a few times to paint my own crockery.

The pictures below show the end results (the cake plate was my contribution).
