Many many moons ago Freddie and I lived on a sailing yacht. With very limited storage my craft box was a small tupperware container. My crafty stash consisted of 6 small bottles of acrylic paint, a flat brush, a round brush and a liner brush. I also had one ink pad and three stamps. I had hardly any card stock because the damp conditions made storage a problem. When we left the UK it was difficult getting hold of craft supplies but one thing I could get hold of was wooden plates. I painted them really to give to other sailing people/families we met on our travels. Mainly I painted plates for the children on the boats. The parents would tell me the child’s favourite cartoon characters and then a plate would be produced at christmas or birthdays etc. I never kept any photos of the plates I gave out but I did find these photos the other day and thought I would share them with you.
The images were copied from books, wrapping paper, old diaries, video boxes or anything I could lay my hands on at the time. I had never thought about it before, but having another look at these, there is no shading on the characters.
Best Wishes Florence.
