I have been busy

I have been busy making more bits for the new project, I have found the wall paper I am going to use, bit more to do on it before I show you.
today I made a scroll and a box to put it in, here are the details

I made a small long box to hold the scroll

this I painted metallic gold, placed tiny picture on top

sorry this i a bit blurred, I cut and painted 2 cocktail sticks, rolled a small Egyptian design and attached the ends to the sticks, then it was rolled up

scroll with cocktail sticks attached

finished item.

I am making a few of these, along with boxes and other bits, as it is a large shop, I hope to end up with a large selection that are for sale,

I have also been to the hospital today to have my echo scan, will have the results in a couple of weeks, just hope all is ok,
this weekend is down to housework stuff like washing, ironing cooking cleaning, there depressed myself now, so going to have a large drink and watch a bit of telly bye for now

some of the items I have sprayed

some of the items I have brought
after a lot of deliberation I have decided to start my Egyptian project,it has been sitting looking at me for a long time, and now I have my new work room I have the space to work on it, I have put on pictures before but will be showing them again, one of my problems was deciding what to cover the wall with, well I found something, and I am now in the process of making the paper look right, I am still undecided what to do the outside wall in, I welcome any suggestions, I was very lucky with the shop, I picked it up for 5.00 from my local second hand shop, I could not believe my luck, the other bits I have collected for a long time and I have also made a lot of ornaments and bits for it, today I am going to spray a cabinet gold to match the others I have already done, it really just needs decorating and putting it all together, so off I go.
If you want to see some more pictures see earlier blog pages.

this is before I get spraying,

I have also completed another one of my projects, its a mans desk, I sprayed this matt black, added some gold decorations and then added stuff to make it look real, hope you like it

you can see the before and after,
well better start preparing the room box, will be putting on pictures of my progress
