I hope you are all keeping well - We are one step closer to Spring, even though we have a forecast of freezing temperatures in the next few days, I'm staying optimistic.
Tulips and daffodils are in the shops and I just love them, they make me happy. I have some cards to share with you with my own painted flowers though the photos are not the best, I'm struggling to hold the camera still. They are sentiment free till I know what they will be used for.
I stamped the branch on this one and painted the rest, added it to a frame with gold leafing on and a couple of sequins.
...Whereas I painted the branch on this one
I love the way the paint left a mark on the plant pot ont his next one - makes it look more of a rough terracotta
More pots with the start of Spring flowers and foliage
This looks so much prettier IRL - The
heart is painted gold and I love the idea of a house vase. The piece
behind the painting is from some packaging I saved and though you can't
see it here, it's glossy.
I had to throw in a gnome, I was playing with salt on w/colour. I love
to do this random technique and look for shapes to sketch/paint into it.
Finally some paintings I did, one of which I framed
There is a lot of gold sparkle for the stars but unfortunately it doesn't show up here. I did a few of these
...trying out different w/colour papers and plain CS. I'm still not sure which I prefer but they all act differently so it's always a learning curve for me. One thing I do know is that I like to do tiny details rather than landscapes but this past week my hands have constantly failed me. I dropped my coffee all over my desk and it it even seeped into the drawers, what a palaver cleaning that up.
Well, I'm off to get a cup of tea... this has taken me more than an hour to type
Have a beautiful weekend
